the oxygen tank should be changes when the pressure is:
non-rebreathing systems are best used on animals that:
weigh less than 8kg
during anesthesia, the best way to fill the resivoir bag on the machine is:
increase the oxygen flow
a resivoir bag for a 45Ib dog should be:

monitor pressure in circle system
when setting up an anesthesia machine for a procedure you should always:
leak test the anesthetic machine
what statement regarding "sighning" an animal is true?

the pre-measured length of the intubation tube should extend from the tip of the nose to what part of the dog?
what is the maximum percentage of nitrous oxide that can be safley administered during anesthesia?
the circulatory system can best be monitored during anesthesia by checking:
what size oxygen tank is usually used for central oxygen supply throughout the facility?
which of the following would be the best indicator of hypoventilation?
a reservoir bag that is not moving may indicate:
the endotracheal is not in the trachea.
the animal is apneic.
there is a leak in the anesthetic circuit.
the endotracheal tube cuff is leaking.

what is the most accurate way to check if an endotracheal tube is properly placed in an animal?
visualize the tube in the larynx
what type of scavenge systen cannot be used when using nitrous oxide?
activated charcoal absorber

which of the following is a function of the rebreathing bag in an anesthetic circuit.
acts as a reservoir for circulating gases.
what is the name of the safety system used to prevent accidentally attaching a nitrous oxide tank to an oxygen yoke?
to prevent atelectasis during surgical anesthesia,the rvt should:
sigh the patient periodically.
expired carbon dioxide

what is the function of the "pop-off" valve on the anesthetic machine?
controls the amount of air going to the rebreathing bag or scavenging system
why are cats particularly difficult to intubate?
the oxygen flush valve:
allows oxygen to flow into the breathing system without going through the vaporizer
