Anesthesia Unit Absorbers, Carbon Dioxide

Definition : Devices designed to absorb expired carbon dioxide circulating in the patient breathing circuit before the gas is recirculated back through the anesthesia system to the patient. Typically, these absorbers consist of canisters in line with the connection from the breathing bag to the patient or canisters with appropriate valves for inclusion in a circle system. The carbon dioxide is typically absorbed in soda lime (calcium hydroxide plus additives) or another mixture with similar properties.
