9‐12 Monitoring Agents and Gases (AGENT Option)
Place the airway adapter at the proximal end of the airway circuit.
Always insert the patient sampling line into the water trap port
before inserting the airway adapter into the breathing circuit. Failure
to follow this may introduce a leak in the circuit, thereby reducing
set minute volume.
Do not place the airway adapter between the ET tube and the elbow
as this may allow patient secretions to accumulate in the adapter. If
pooling does occur, replace the airway adapter. To prevent moisture
from draining into the airway adapter, always place the adapter
tubing in a up position, as shown above.
Select the Patient Type.
See Selecting the Patient Type on page 3‐11.
Check that the connections have been made correctly by verifying
the patient's breathing efforts with the displayed CO2 waveform.
Before completion of patient setup, ensure that the
patient's breathing efforts coincide with the displayed
After allowing the AGS system to run for at least 1 minute, pinch or
seal the sampling line for 5 seconds and verify that Occlusion is
