Not a characteristic of newer vaporizer:
|C||Effected by back pressure|
Effected by back pressure
The characteristics of newer vaporizers are:
a. Temperature compensated ie., not effected by changes in temperature.
b. Variable bypass i.e.. fresh gases can be adjusted either to pass through vaporizer or bypass channel.
c. Not effected by back pressure ie., pumping effect is eliminated.
d. Flow over i.e., gas passes over the agent to make it vaporize not through it (bubble through).
e. Agent specific.
f. Outside the circuit.
