Determination of contamination of a chemical warfare-proof operating theatre with volatile anaesthetic agents and assessment of anaesthetic gas scavenging systems.
Three types of anaesthetic waste scavenging systems (active antipollution system, Papworth Block passive system and activated charcoal absorber system) were compared with a nonscavenging control to assess their effectiveness in reducing waste halothane concentrations in a chemical warfare-proof operating theatre.
All three systems were found to reduce the level of pollution significantly.
