Propofol should always be administered slowly to effect to minimize adverse cardiovascular effects. Bradycardia may develop—especially after rapid administration. With Telazol on board, "overpressure" may not be necessary—assess depth of anesthesia prior to utilizing this technique. (Due to Propofol's rapid induction and rapid elimination (about a 3-5 minute window of duration) the technique of "overpressure" is required to assure a smooth transition to Sevoflurane. Sevoflurane deliveiy concentra tions should be set at 3% using an oxygen flow rate of 3 L/min (3%/3 L/3 min).

The small E tanks hold 600 liters of oxygen. If you have no backup J E tanks in your hospital, you should not attempt surgery with less than 500 PSI remaining in your tank. • The watermelon tanks that fit into the back of the anesthesia cart hold 1200 liters of oxygen. With 500 PSI, you have 300 liters O2 • The large H tanks hold 7000 liters O2 and at 500 PSI ('A left), 1750 liters of oxygen remain. If you are running a flow rate of Soda Lime Canister 1 L/minute, you have adequate O2 delivery for 1750 minutes (29 hours) of anesthesia time.

There may be debris in the flowmeter, causing it to fail—Solution: Remove the old flow control assembly and install new mechanical stop oxygen flow control assembly. 38 MMl Banfield—Confidential Internal Use Only—Revised 3/10/03 J kaasaJ Problem Diagnosis & Solution (rail system), or replace oxygen flush only in Compact-W. Vaporizer not working (rare) • Loose fitting on back of flowmeter (rare)—Solution: tighten fitting with crescent wrench. (continued) • Faulty check valve in dual gas supply (very rare)—Solution: replace check valve.
