This study assessed the safety of sevoflurane anaesthesia using two Komesaroff vaporizers inside the circle with both spontaneous and controlled ventilation. Sevoflurane concentrations were continuously monitored using a mass spectrometer and the anaesthetic depth was easily controlled. Involuntary movements occurred in eight patients and breath-holding occurred in five patients after inhalational induction. With continuous monitoring of sevoflurane concentrations, induction and maintenance of anaesthesia using a vaporizer inside the circle is safe during both controlled and spontaneous ventilation. However the high incidence of involuntary movements may limit the feasibility of induction in spontaneously breathing patients.
