What Bioengineers Should Know About Flow Measurement for Anesthesia Delivery/Pain Management
By John Haberstock31 Mar 2020
Transonic technology can verify anesthesia delivery and pain management. Anesthesia delivery systems integrate several devices into a combined freestanding unit, used to induce and maintain anesthesia in a patient undergoing surgery.
The most common type of anesthesia machine used in the developed world is the continuous-flow or “Boyle’s machine,” designed to provide an accurate supply of medical gases mixed with an accurate concentration of anesthetic vapor and to deliver this continuously to the patient at a safe pressure and flow.
Transonic technology can provide more accurate dosing, which reduces adverse events, improves clinical outcomes and helps reduce microbubbles that could lead to embolisms.
