1.1 Introduction
The safe practice of anaesthesia requires familiarity with a wide range of equipment.
The anaesthetist should be ready to use any of the following equipment and must have
detailed knowledge of its operation.
2 The anaesthetic machine

The anaesthetic machine is one of the most important pieces of equipment and is
fundamental to delivering safe anaesthesia. It can seem like a complex and intimidating
device to use, but fundamentally it is designed to fulfil only one purpose: to take a
variety of medical gases and mix them in a manner specified by the anaesthetist, before
delivering them in a controlled way to the patient.
2.1 Piped medical gases
Most anaesthetic machines will take their primary gas supply from the hospital pipeline
supply. Some theatres, particularly those separate from the hospital’s main theatre
block, may only have cylinder supplies.
Pipeline supplies have the advantage that they draw their gases from a central location
in the hospital and should therefore never run out!
