Rebreathing of Carbon Dioxide With a Device Used for Giving Inhalational Anaesthesia

Brief Summary:
The anesthesia gas reflector (AnaConDa) is built on the adsorptive capacity of active carbon which also adsorbs carbon dioxide in exhaled air. Rebreathing of carbon dioxide thus occurs and must be compensated for by increased ventilation. This study aims at determining how much compensation must be given, based on the hypothesis that rebreathing depends on carbon dioxide level in blood and exhaled air.

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Actual Enrollment : 6 participants
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Basic Science
Official Title: Dead Space Effect of an Anaesthesia Gas Reflector (AnaConDa)
Study Start Date : April 2011
Actual Primary Completion Date : January 2013
Actual Study Completion Date : January 2013

Arm Intervention/treatment
Active Comparator: AnaConDa Device: Anesthetic Conserving Device (AnaConDa )
Standard HME was replaced by AnaConDa. AnaConDa has charcoal filter, HME does not.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Airway Dead Space With Devices for Heat and Moisture Exchange of Respiratory Gas. [ Time Frame: 1 hour ]
    A conventional heat and moisture exchanger used in a respiratory circuit during anasthesia was exchanged by an AnaConDa. The AnaConDa causes re-breathing of carbon dioxide which clinically is equivalent to an increased airway dead space. The total airway dead space effect of the AnaConDa, i.e. volume of the device plus rebreathing from the charcoal filter was measured using the Single Breath Test for carbon dioxide, as was airway deadspace of the conventional Heat and Moisture Exchanger. Airway dead space differences between devices was calculated by subtraction of volumes thus achieved. Difference= Airway dead space AnaConDa - Airway dead space conventional Heat and Moisture Exchanger.
