Measurements of pressure and flow in five anaesthetic breathing systems were studied with various fresh gas flows (FGF) using volunteers, and mechanically simulated breathing. Pressure measurements were made at the patient connection and in the neck of the reservoir bag. A pneumotachograph was used to measure flow in the patient connection. The change in the work of breathing imposed by the circuit was derived from the pressure-volume graph and apportioned to stages of the breathing cycle. All the systems studied increased the work of breathing. Expiratory work was always increased more than inspiratory work. The additional work imposed on expiration and the total extra work imposed on breathing were further increased at FGF greater than the minimum clinical requirement.
