The Anesthetic Gas Scavenging System is used to remove anesthetic gases directly from patient connection of Anesthesia Machine by means of Air mixer, AGS outlet pipeline and AGS Exhauster to provide clean and free Anesthetic Gases environment in Operation Theaters.
A scavenger system is a medical device used in hospitals. It is used to gather gas or aerosolized medication after it is exhaled from the patient or left the area of the patient. Often used to collect anesthesia, it can also be used to collect any type of gas or aerosolized medicine that is intended only for the patient and should not be breathed in by any other medical personnel.
The use of scavenger systems in operating rooms is to prevent the anesthesia from leaking away from the patient or anesthesia system and flooding the operating room. When using the aerosolised medicine Ribavirin, the scavenger system prevents the spread of it away from the patient area; Ribavirin can have serious side effects and people may build up immunity to it quickly, hence the use of the scavenger system.
