  1. Flow of gas through anesthesia machine
    • Oxygen Source
    • Oxygen Flowmeter
    • Oxygen Flush Valve
    • Precision Vaporizer 
    • Rebreathing Bag
    • Manometer
    • Inspiratory Flutter Valve
    • Inspiratory Hose
    • Patient
    • Expiratory Hose
    • Expiratory Flutter Valve
    • Soda Lime Canister
    • Pop-off Valve
    • Scavenging Hose
  2. Pressurizing anesthesia machine
    • Close the pop off valve
    • Occlude the end of the rebreathing tube
    • Press O2 flush valve 
    • Fill bad until manometer reads between 5-10 cm of H2O
    • Squeeze the rebreathing bag 
    • Manometer should maintain pressure
  3. Ayers-T non rebreathing bag is used for animals that weight what?
    Less than 15 lbs
  4. What does the Ayers-T non rebreathing system do for the animal?
    Decreases the amount of "dead space" the animal has to move during inspiration and expiration
  5. How to use the Ayers-T non rebreathing system
    • Connect green hose from Ayers-T to machine where it says fresh gas inlet
    • Clear hose hooks up to Ayers-T canister
    • Set oxygen on anesthetic machine to 1 1/2- 2 L of oxygen per min 
    • Place pop off valve on rebreathing bag upwards otherwise patient cant exhale
    • To test for leaks place finger over end on bag and over pop=off on rebreathing bag, bag should fill.
  6. What kind of batteries does a pulse oximeter use?
    4 AA
  7. Pulse oximeter measures what two values
    SpO2 and Pulse
  8. How to use pulse oximeter
    • Plug electrical plug into outlet
    • Place sensor of choice in top of the machine
    • Set highs and lows for pulse and SpO2
    • Attach sensor to patient with red light facing the ceiling and turn machine on
    • Pulse reading appears first, then SpO2
    • Normal reading is 95-97, anything under 90 there is a problem
  9. What does the doppler measure
    Systolic pressure only
  10. How to use the doppler machine
    • Unplug the machine before use, make sure volume is all the way down
    • Clip patient hair
    • Put gel on probe with the side with 2 white lines
    • Move slowly until artery is found 
    • Tape probe in place
    • Place cuff above probe 
    • Inflate cuff until you no longer hear the artery
    • Gently release cuff until you hear the first sound of blood flow back into artery 
    • This number is your systolic pressure
    • Deflate cuff fully 
    • Gently clean probe and wires with alcohol
  11. Surgivet placements
    • Capnograph (clear short tube)
    • Bottom hole: Purple cord NIBP
    • Second hole: Temp, long black hose with white end (esophageal temp)
    • 3rd hole: ECG
    • Top hole: SPO2, black hose with clip sensor
