E-cylinder-powered mechanical ventilation may adversely impact anesthetic management and efficiency.

PMID:  12088959     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
IMPLICATIONS: The time available to ventilate patients with an E-cylinder tank as the sole oxygen source was found to be as short as 38 min. Clinicians must recognize that mechanical ventilation using oxygen cylinders rapidly depletes oxygen and could jeopardize patient safety.
