Just replaced my old aluminium APC cans with nice new plastic MEC cans in the theatre induction rooms.
Looks good until you turn on the system, then its like my Corvette's air intake at full chat!! Can't hear a thing let alone the patient breathing!
As we also have Papworth manifold blocks to connect to the induction breathing circuit, and also the exhaust from the Nuffield 200 bag squeezers, ..could I lose the cans altogether and connect the scavenging port on the wall directly into the Papworth Block.
Can't see the low level -ve pressure from the scavenging having an effect on the breathing gear connected, but are we still required to have passive scavenging too these days?
