Circuit of choice for controlled ventilation
a. Magill circuit is type A Mapleson circuit. Fresh gas flow should be equal to minute volume to prevent rebreathing (that means that patient should not rein hale his expired gases).
b. It is the circuit of choice for spontaneously breathing patient and the expiratory valve should be as near to the patient to allow maximum exhalation of expired gases.
