Anesthesia Booklets by Drager

The history of anesthesia at Dräger (vol. 1)

<The history of anesthesia at drager>

It all started 150 years ago: in 1846 it first became possible for patients to have their teeth extracted under anaesthesia. This original „ether intoxication“ was the beginning of anaesthesia technology, a development which has continued to the present day – to our modern anaesthesiaworkstations.
This book gives a comprehensive account of the history of anesthesia at Dräger. The first volume takes the reader from the invention of the cylinder regulator at the end of the last century through to the mid-Sixties, when Halothane was discovered as the new anesthetic agent

Pediatric Anesthesia by drager

An anesthetic workstation to be used for pediatric anesthesia has to meet numerous requirements and must take into consideration the special physiological aspects of
the various age groups of children, from premature babies to school children.

Children are not simply to be considered “little adults”.
They differ from adults anatomically, physiologically, psychologically, and biochemically.
These differences are especially marked whencomparing premature infants and neonates to adults, andthey only begin to recede around a child’s tenth year.

This booklet aims to provide information to all those anesthetists who do not treat infants or small children on a daily basis.
The topics dealt with include ventilation, anesthesia machines, monitoring, accessories, low-flow-anesthesia, special physiological features and anesthetics.

Low-flow anesthesia with Dräger machines

Low flow anaesthesia is defined to be an inhalation
anaesthetic technique via a rebreathing system in which
the rebreathing
fraction at least amounts to 50 %,
i.e. 50 % of the exhaled gas volume is led back to the patient after carbon
dioxide absorption in the next inspiration. Using modern
anaesthetic machines this will be gained at a fresh gas flow rate between 2 to 1 L/min.
This book raises and answers all the questions
which are relevant to the low-flow-method.
It provides the anesthetist with the basic information
he requires both to introduce the method into routine practice and to know what indications need to be watched with care
