Vapor Verifications

Purpose:

To assess and document performance of calibrated anesthetic vaporizers, based on manufacture’s suggested flowrate parameters.

Features:

Calibrated vaporizers are verified on-site for proper performance of output.  A Riken analyzer is used for this procedure (a preferred system for verification of vaporizer output.)  Written documentation noting actual vaporizer output is completed and left with the hospital facility.

Regularly scheduled vaporizer verification may be accomplished during waste anesthetic trace gas testing for a minimal charge.
