The performance of the Samson paediatric set, used in Mapleson F mode, has been evaluated in 10 infants. It is a prepacked, sterile, disposable, light-weight and economical set, and would therefore seem to offer advantages over more conventional infant anaesthetic circuits. The oxygenation of patients was adequate throughout and the removal of carbon dioxide effective. No anaesthetic problems were encountered with this circuit. Postoperative chest infection did not occur in the 10 infants studied.
