The gases, O2, Air and N2O, are supplied to the Fresh Gas Control unit from the ADU gas inlets. Air and
O2 are also supplied to the ventilator unit.
The optional reserve gas cylinders supply both the ventilator unit and the Fresh Gas Control unit. (The
gas combinations and number of cylinders can vary.)
When the O2 Flush button is pushed, 100 % O2 is flushed directly to the fresh gas outlet, to which the
patient circuit is connected.
Depending on which sypply is used, the pressure gauges show either the pressure from the pipeline
supply system or the regulated cylinder pressure. There is also a pressure gauge mounted for each
cylinder, which shows the actual cylinder pressure (before it is regulated).
The Fresh Gas Control unit mixes supply gases and dosages the anesthetic agent and distributes the
mixture to the fresh gas outlet.
During the AUTO ventilation the driving gas from the ventilator is used to push the breathing gas into
the patient. During Manual ventilation the operator manually ventilates the patient with a bag.
Waste gases from the breathing system are transferred to the EVAC outlet. Gas can also for security
reasons be evacuated directly to the EVAC outlet from the Fresh Gas Control unit.

Anesthesia Delivery Unit without N2O


An ADU configured to operate without the use of N2O, has a locking device between the N2O flow
control and the Air/N20 switch. The Air/N2O switch cannot be rotated and only O2 and Air can be
used.

Figure 8 Fresh gas flow controls with locking device

The screen layout and some menus will differ when you are using the ADU without N2O. This
especially applies to the System Check menu. The System Check has been modified so it can pass
without the use of N2O. For further information see “System Check performed on an ADU without
N2O” on page 89.

2 System description

Anesthesia Delivery Unit with neutral color coding


Whereas the majority of countries within Europe apply ISO 32 for color coding of medical gases and
connection systems, some countries, for example Germany, Austria, Hungary and Switzerland, have
been using country-specific color coding. In order to harmonize the situation among member
countries it has been agreed that as of July 1, 2006, only color coding according to ISO 32 shall be
applied throughout EU. During the transitional period, countries using a different color coding system
are recommending the use of "neutral color coding". Datex-Ohmeda has decided to use the color
black as "neutral color". It should also be pointed out that according to applicable safety standards
color coding of gases and connection systems is always optional, only the gas name or chemical
symbol is mandated.

Parts of the ADU affected by the neutral color coding


Front of ADU
On the front of the Anesthesia Delivery Unit, the fresh gas flow controls, the pressure gauges and the
O2 flush have neutral color coding. On the ADU display the gases are presented in neutral color in the
fresh gas field.
NOTE: On the fresh gas flow controls and the pressure gauges the English word “Air“ is used as a
symbol for air. When presented in the fresh gas field on the display the translated term is used.

Ventilator
The ventilator consists of the electronic control unit and the bellows unit. The electronic control unit is
situated behind the ADU main display.
Pressurized gas, either Air or O2 powers the ventilator. One of these gases is the primary driving gas. If
the primary driving gas is lost, the ADU automatically switches to the other driving gas.

2 System description

Bag-in-bottle principle
The ADU ventilator uses the Bag-In-Bottle principle with a standing bellows. This means that the
driving gas, which is compressed Air or O2, is separated from the fresh gas to the patient and from the
patient’s expiratory gas.
During inspiration the driving gas passes into the pressure chamber, compresses the bellows,
thereby pushing the gas inside the bellows into the patient circuit.
(See sequences 1 and 2 below.)
The increased pressure is due to the flow either from the ventilator during mechanical ventilation or
from the manual bag when it is squeezed during manual ventilation.
During expiration the driving gas escapes from the pressure chamber into the atmosphere. The
bellows is filled with the expiratory gas. (See sequences 3 and 4 below)
The standing bellows system maintains a small positive pressure (2 to 3 cmH2O) in the circuit.

Tidal volume compensation


Independent of gas composition, the ADU compensates for the fresh gas inflow during inspiration, as
well as for the compressible volume of the patient circuit - thus securing set tidal volume (TV) to the
patient.

• Compressible volume in the patient circuit (compliance) is measured during the System Check.
• The fresh gas flow is measured continuously.
• The Tidal Volume required by the bellows is calculated.

Set TV (1) = TV bellow (2) + Fresh gas flow (3) - Circuit compressed volume (4) = Patient TV (5)

Module Frame Rack


The rack that holds the modules may - as an option - be moved to either of two positions. An outer
position to make the modules more accessable and an inner position when accessability is less
important. The rack moves on rails and is locked in both positions.

To move the module rack from its inner position into outer position:
1. Unlock by pushing both latches outwards. At the same time, pull the rack outwards. As soon as
the rack has moved a bit - let go of the latches.
2. Move the rack all the way into outer position. The locking device will “click” into operation when
the rack is in proper position.

To move the rack from the outer position into inner position:
• Unlock, move and lock the rack in a corresponding manner to what is described above.

Backup systems
Battery backup
The Anesthesia Delivery Unit is a mains operated device with battery back up. The batteries are
activated when the power cord is not connected, or when the mains power (wall outlet source) is lost
during operation. The batteries are also activated in the case of mains over-voltage. When the mains
power is lost, the power failure alarm is immediately activated. A green light above the On/ Standby
switch indicates that the mains power is connected.
NOTE: The battery should be periodically replaced. See the ADU Technical Reference Manual for more
details.
NOTE: The power at the auxiliary electrical outlets is always On when the delivery unit is connected to
mains voltage and Off when running on the battery.
Battery capacity
The internal battery capacity is at least 20 minutes with fully charged batteries. A symbol on the
monitor display indicates the remaining battery capacity. When about 30 seconds remains of battery
operating time, a HIGH priority alarm message “Battery Empty Go Manual” is activated.

the cylinders closed when wall gases are used.

Figure 34 Reserve gas cylinder

CAUTION Be aware that the reserve gas cylinders will be emptied more quickly if the auxiliary
gas outlets are used.
Driving gas
The primary driving gas is either Air or O2. If the driving gas pressure is lost, the ADU will automatically
use the auxiliary driving gas. When the driving gas is switched, the message “Driving gas to:
Secondary” is displayed. When the primary driving gas is restored the message disappears.
If the pressure of both the primary and secondary driving gases is lost the message “Loss of driving
pressure” appears.

Datex-Ohmeda ADU

Preparation for Patient SpirometryTM monitoring (Datex-Ohmeda monitors)


Optimal anesthesia delivery is achieved by adjusting ventilator settings with the help of measured
patient data. Gas and spirometry data are measured by the Datex-Ohmeda D-liteTM and Pedi-liteTM
sensors.
WARNING To prevent hazards arising from incorrect delivery of gases, the ADU shall always
be used with the following monitoring:
• O2 monitor in according to ISO7767/EN 12598
• Agent monitor according to ISO 11196/EN ISO 11196
• CO2 monitor according to ISO 9918/EN864
• Expired volume monitor according to ISO 8835-1/EN 740
NOTE: If required, an alarm signaling when a volume monitor is not connected or is switched off, may
be installed by a qualified technician.

Selecting spirometry sensor


Adult and pediatric patients are measured with different sensors.
Note: The monitor cannot recognize the size of the patient or which sensor is in use. Adult or pediatric
sensor mode must be selected on the monitor.
D-lite sensors
The D-lite sensor is intended for patients having a tidal volume from 150 to 2000 ml. There is a
reusable D-lite sensor (733910) available as well as a disposable D-lite+ (896952 pkg of 50 pcs),
which also is designed for humid conditions (e.g. low flow).

Figure 65 D-lite and D-lite+ sensor

68 Document No. 8501700-2


3 Assembly and preparations

Pedi-lite sensors
The Pedi-lite sensor is intended for pediatric patients with tidal volumes from 15 to 300 ml. There is a
reusable Pedi-lite (73393) available as well as a disposable Pedi-lite+ (8001948 pkg of 50 pcs),
which also is designed for humid conditions (e.g. low flow).

Figure 66 Pedi-lite sensor

Connecting the spirometry sensor


No specific instruction can be given here as the connection of the spirometry sensor varies from one
type of monitor to another. Please refer to the instruction manual for the monitor used.

Note: It is recommended to use a microbiological filter between the endotracheal tube and the
D-lite/Pedi-lite sensor. Replace the filter after each patient in order to prevent sensor and patient
tubing from being contaminated. Adding a filter will, of course, increase dead space.

Sampling gas
The gas monitors draw sampling gas from the patient circuit at a rate of approx. 200 ml/min. Avoid
letting sampling gas escape into room air! The sampling gas may be directed to the scavenging
connector under the bellows block as shown below.

Figure 68 Sample gas returned to scavenging in bellows block


The sampling gas may also be returned to the patient circuit with an optional adapter. The adapter is
connected to the patient breathing tubes as shown below.

4 System check
General
Each time the ADU is powered on, at least once every day, Datex-Ohmeda recommends that a
System Check should be performed. Datex-Ohmeda also strongly recommends that a System Check
always is performed when the pneumatics system has been disassembled, or the size of the patient
circuit has been changed, i.e. from adult to pediatric.
When the power is turned on, the display is blank for a moment. During the system Self-Check,
including the battery check that follows, the Datex-Ohmeda logotype is displayed. If the self-check is
still going on when the System Check menu appears, some items are blue - i.e. not selectable. When
the self-check is finished, the blue items on the System Check menu turn white i.e. selectable. The
System Check menu may also be attained by pushing the System Check key. However, the
ventilation must be switched to Manual mode before all menu items are selectable.
WARNING Always perform the System Check with the breathing circuit in the state in which
it will be used. If the breathing circuit is changed in any way after the System
Check has been performed (e.g. removing the absorber, changing the volume of
the expandable breathing hoses), another System Check is imperative!
WARNING Do not perform a System Check while a patient is connected to the delivery unit.
WARNING Before performing the System Check, verify that the breathing circuit is set up
correctly, according to the picture below.

NOTE: During the Start-up and System Check procedures, the ADU will do some ”valve exercising”.
This produces clicking sounds which are perfectly normal and should be ignored.
NOTE: The System Check performed on an ADU without N2O differs in some ways from what is
described in this chapter. For more information about System Check on an N2O free machine, see
“System Check performed on an ADU without N2O” on page 89.

AUTO ventilation check


In Auto mode, the automatic leak check checks the amount of both internal and external leakage as
well as the condition of the respiratory tubing assembly. It also calculates the compressible volume of
the Patient Circuit. If the leakage is less than 150 ml/min. and lost volume, due to compressibility
and patient circuit compliance, is less than 10 ml/cmH2O, the check is automatically regarded as
successful.
For more information about leak detection and correction see “Leak detection” on page 88.
WARNING Do not attempt an AUTO Ventilation check while a patient is connected to the
delivery unit.
The ventilator block and patient circuit is checked. The breathing system is pressurized four times to
about 30 cmH2O for 4 seconds and a fifth time to a higher pressure to check the overpressure release
valve. In the case of a leak the pressure in the system falls. A pressure drop can be seen on the
pressure curve on the screen.
NOTE: Gas monitor sample lines must be disconnected during the check so that the sampling is not
considered leakage, causing subsequent check failure.

Leak detection
The ADU checks for leaks during the AUTO Ventilation check. Avoid making any modifications to the
bellows block assembly or the patient circuit during operation, as any new leaks may go unnoticed.
During the System check AUTO ventilation test, the breathing system is pressurized four times to
about 30 cmH2O and a fifth time at a higher pressure to check the overpressure valve. If there is a
leak, the pressure in the system falls and this can be seen on the pressure curve on the ADU screen.
A leak below 150 ml/min is accepted by the ADU whereas leaks over 150 ml/min result in a FAILED
message. Leaks over 150 ml/min do not prevent the use of ADU. The user may decide whether to
accept the leakage or not.

Figure 84 Pressure waveform during System Check

During daily operation the most likely leak sources are the bellows chamber, the patient circuit hoses,
the compact block, the absorber and their connections.
If the Bellows Block has been dismantled, the overflow valve and rubber sealing of the bellows base
should be checked too.
For further details, see “Leak detection and correction” on page 167.

Leakage limits of ADU


• The AUTO Ventilation check fails when leakage is >150 ml/min.
• The MAN Ventilation check fails when leakage is > 100 ml/min.

The fresh gas flow controls are for mixing and adjusting the fresh gas flow of O2, N2O or Air and one
anesthetic agent.
NOTE: The ADU can be configured to operate without N20, for further information see “Anesthesia
Delivery Unit without N2O” on page 16.
The gas flows are electronically measured and the flows are displayed on the ADU main screen.

Fresh gas display


The gas flows of O2, Air and N2O are measured electronically and displayed on the ADU main screen
as graphical flowmeters and as numerical flow values.

Optionally the fresh gas field can include the Total Flow Data with total fresh gas flow and the
calculated percentage for each gas.
WARNING The ADU O2 % is a calculated value of measured flow data and not a value
measured by an oxygen analyzer. In the case of a hospital pipeline cross
connection, erroneous values will be displayed.
WARNING The O2 percentage in the patient circuit may differ significantly from the O2
percentage of the fresh gas.
The anesthetic agent setting is displayed in a box to the right of the flowmeter numerical display. The
name of the anesthetic agent is identified and the background color under the name is identical to
the color of the vaporizer cassette. When the Desflurane cassette is installed, the liquid level is
indicated on the display.
The concentration of the fresh gas anesthetic agent is displayed numerically in percentages and also
graphically relative to the maximum fresh gas concentration of each anesthetic agent.

WARNING During a complete mains and battery power loss, the ADU will automatically cut
off the N2O flow and anesthetic agent administration. It will also switch to Air.
Air will flow if the needle valve is opened. O2 is also available during a power loss.

02 flush
To flush the system with a high flow of O2 - press the O2 flush button, located on the front edge of the
table (or on the front panel, to the left of the pressure gauges). This will activate the O2 flow to the
fresh gas outlet.

Figure 96 O2 flush on table edge Figure 97 O2 flush on the front panel


(early version)

WARNING Pressing O2 flush during inspiration, will increase inspiratory pressure. The set
pressure limit however, will remain effective and help protect against excessive
pressures.
The ADU is equipped with a proportional regulator, which prevents the operator administering an O2/
N2O/AA mixture containing less than 25% O2 in the fresh gas. If the O2 flow is decreased or the AA
content is increased, the N2O flow will also start to decrease when the O2 concentration goes below
25%. Increasing the O2 flow, or decreasing AA content again, will also restore the N2O flow if its
control position has remained unchanged.

Anesthetic agent
Agent selection
Five volatile agents can be administered; Enflurane, Halothane, Isoflurane, Sevoflurane and
Desflurane. Only one agent can be administered at a time.
Selecting the agent is done by inserting the desired agent cassette into the cassette slot so it locks
into place. When a cassette is installed, the agent field on the display will switch from showing 'Insert
Cassette' to showing the identity of the installed cassette. Make sure that the ADU identifies the
correct agent.

Figure 98 Cassette identification Figure 99 Desflurane liquid level

To remove the cassette, squeeze the handle and pull the cassette out.
Agent adjustment
Agent adjustment in the fresh gas flow is done by turning the Agent wheel counter clockwise to
increase the agent concentration and clockwise to decrease the concentration.

NOTE: The ADU vaporizer performs as an ordinary concentration calibrated vaporizer to the effects of
varying ambient pressure. The nominal agent volume % setting is graduated at sea level ambient
pressure (760 mmHg). If the vaporizer is used at higher altitudes (decreased ambient pressure), the
delivered agent volume % will be higher than the set agent volume % in relation to the decrease of the
ambient pressure. This is due to the agent partial pressure being independent of the ambient
pressure.
NOTE: If required, an alarm signal when the Sevoflurane control has been set above 5 %, may be
installed by a qualified technician.

Safety
Agent administration
Agent administration can always be stopped by removing the cassette. Squeeze the cassette handle
and pull out the cassette.
The cassette can be carried in any position e.g. by its handle. There is no risk of an overdose when the
cassette is reinstalled into the machine after a transport.
To avoid the risk of inadvertently filling a cassette with a wrong agent, the keyed filler system shall be
used.
The anesthetic agent cassette alarms and switches off if the fresh gas flow is decreased below 150
ml per minute, displaying Agent Shut Off. The anesthetic agent cassette is operational when the flow
is increased above 200 ml/min., but the agent delivery must be turned on again.
In case of a fresh gas unit failure, increase the O2 flow to secure optimal oxygenation, and replace the
machine.
NOTE: If there is an overpressure in the Desflurane cassette, caused by a high working temperature
(above +35 ºC), the pressure is released into the scavenging system and an alarm sounds.
NOTE: If a cassette is overfilled, the excess liquid is released into the scavenging system and an
alarm sounds. Additional O2 flow should be used to flush the cassette. This will increase the O2 flow
at the fresh gas outlet.
NOTE: Remove the Aladin Cassette when the ADU is not in use.
Mains failure
If the hospital electrical supply is lost, the machine will automatically switch to battery operation and
give the operator a message indicating battery life. The ADU will give the operator messages rising to
alarms when the battery supply is nearing its end. When the message BATTERY EMPTY GO MANUAL
appears there is approximately 30 seconds of operation time. When the vaporizer loses power the
valves will automatically close the flows to and from the vaporizer.
WARNING During a complete mains and battery power failure the vaporizer will not deliver
any anesthetic agent.
Display failure
If the display should fail, the ”agent on” lamp next to the agent wheel will indicate that agent is being
administered. The setting will not change unless the control is adjusted. Turn off the agent by turning
the agent wheel clockwise until the lamp goes out. Also turn off the N2O flow and increase the O2 flow
to secure optimal oxygenation. Monitor inspired/expired agent concentrations on monitor.

CO2 absorber
NOTE: Check the color of absorbent. If the color is changed and rebreathing can be observed from
CO2 monitoring, replace the absorber canister. The absorber canister can also be replaced during
ventilation. Follow the instruction included in the absorber package.

Patient weight
The patient’s weight automatically calculates - and
suggests – setting values for the following parameters:
• Tidal volume
• Respiration rate
• Minute volume
NOTE: As a change of the Patient Weight value affects
other settings, it is only possible to enter the Patient
Weight value while in the Manual mode.
When entering a Patient Weight menu for the first time,
the patient weight (Factory default, 60 kg, corresponds
to a TV of 500 ml and a RR of 10) is the weight value that
was entered together with the other ventilator settings.

When the weight value is adjusted, new settings are calculated and shown as suggested new
ventilator settings in the help and ventilator fields. The new settings are entered in the ventilator when
leaving the Patient Weight menu.
Although a changed Patient Weight value does not effect the Set Pressure value in the Pressure-
controlled mode, it is still good practice always to enter the Patient Weight value.
NOTE: If a patient‘s weight exceeds 100 kg or is below 5 kg, the tidal volume should be adjusted

The frequency of the mandatory breaths can never be lower than the pre-set Respiration Rate (RR).
On the other hand, the possibility for the patient to trigger mandatory breaths within the Trigger

oxygen uptake plus the monitor-sampling rate. (See chapter Sampling Gas in section 3, Assembly
and Preparations)

6 Alarms

6 Alarms
Alarm Signals and Sequences
The alarms are classified into categories according to their priority. The priority of an alarm depends
primarily upon the cause and duration.
The priority increases with the duration of the alarm condition. Also, the more significant the cause of
an alarm, the more rapidly the alarm advances to HIGH priority. Thus e.g. ‘Ppeak High’ advances
rapidly to HIGH priority, whereas disconnection is allowed a longer time.
The following alarm categories are used:

Priority Meaning Tone pattern Visual


HIGH Situation requiring Triple + double beep 1 s Alarm message
immediate operator pause, then triple + double 5 displayed in a red box
response s pause...
--- -- 1 s --- -- 5 s --- -- 1s --- --
MEDIUM Situation requiring prompt Triple beep every 19 s Alarm message
operator response --- 19 s --- 19 s --- displayed in a grey or
black box with a
yellow frame
LOW Situation requiring operator Single beep Alarm message
awareness - displayed in a grey or
black box with a white
frame
INFORMATION Additional information None Information displayed
in a grey or black box

NOTE: On earlier versions of the ADU the priority level “INFORMATION” does not exist and the visual
appearance of the alarm messages is different. The HIGH priority alarms are displayed in a box with a
red frame, the MEDIUM priority with a yellow frame and the LOW priority with a white frame.
When an alarm becomes active:
• A message appears in the order of priority in the message field at the top of the display.
• The corresponding parameter value flashes as yellow or red.
• An auditory alarm is sounded.
WARNING Always make sure that alarm limits are appropriately set when a patient is
connected to the ADU.

8 Cleaning and maintenance


General
For safe reliable function and operation of the Anesthesia Delivery Unit, regular cleaning and
maintenance has to be carried out according to the instructions in this User’s Reference Manual and
the maintenance procedures described in the Technical Reference Manual.
WARNING Always unplug the electric power cord before cleaning or maintenance of the
Anesthesia Delivery Unit. Let it dry completely before reconnecting it to the
electrical outlet.
WARNING A full System Check must be performed before patient use if the ADU has been
disassembled for cleaning. A leak test should be performed every time any of the
breathing system parts have been replaced.
CAUTION Do not perform any cleaning or maintenance procedures other than those described
in this manual.
CAUTION Clean the cooling fan dust filters (behind the rear cover) at least once a month.
Cleaning should be carried out by a qualified technician.
Follow the general cleaning and disinfection instructions described below, unless some other
instructions are described for a component later in this chapter.

Cleaning and disinfection methods


All parts of the patient circuit and ventilator bellows unit - except the bellows chamber - are machine
washable. All parts, including the Datex-Ohmeda Compact Block II, may be autoclaved (Compact
Block I may not be autoclaved). Also; the ADU is completely free of latex.
Different methods and levels for cleaning and disinfection are described below.
Datex-Ohmeda recommends that hospital routines are always followed to select appropriate level
and frequency of cleaning and disinfection. This is especially important if there is a risk that the
patient suffers from a contagious disease. Further, Datex-Ohmeda recommends that Universal
Precautions for infection control are considered in the protocols of hospitals using the ADU.

Cleaning
Cleaning (or precleaning): The removal, usually with detergent and water, of adherent visible soil,
blood, protein substances, and other debris from the surfaces, crevices, serrations, joints, and
lumens of instruments, devices, and equipment by a manual or mechanical process that prepares
the items for safe handling and/or further decontamination. (FDA)
Cleaning methods
Always clean the equipment properly before disinfection.
NOTE: Cleaning in a washer or washer-disinfector.
If the washer or washer-disinfector has a washing program with 85° C/185° F for 10 minutes or
more, this provides an intermediate level disinfection as well.
• Wiping away organic material with mild soap-based solution.
• Washing by hand using warm water and mild detergent.
Let the cleaned parts dry in a warming closet or at room temperature.

Intermediate level disinfection


Disinfection: The destruction of pathogenic and other kinds of microorganisms by physical or
chemical means. Disinfection is a less lethal process than sterilization, since it destroys most
recognized pathogenic microorganisms, but not necessarily all microbial forms, such as bacterial
spores. Disinfection processes do not ensure the margin of safety associated with sterilization
processes. (FDA)
Always clean the equipment properly before disinfection.
Disinfection in a washer or washer-disinfector at high temperatures (85° C/185° F) is the most
effective and primary disinfection method for the breathing system parts in contact with the patient’s
airway.
Intermediate level disinfection methods
• Clean the parts with a decontamination program in a washer or washer-disinfector, minimum
10 minutes at 85° C/185° F. The detergent should be alkaline (pH value 10 to 11).
• Clean away organic material with mild soap-based solution and let dry. Wipe with 70% alcohol
and let dry.
CAUTION Avoid cleaners based on ammonia, phenol or acetone as they may damage the parts.

142 Document No. 8501700-2


8 Cleaning and maintenance

High level disinfection


High Level Disinfectant: A germicide that inactivates all microbial pathogens, except large numbers
of bacterial endospores, when used according to labeling. The FDA further defines a high level
disinfectant as a sterilant used under the same contact conditions except for a shorter contact time.
(FDA)
Always clean the equipment properly before disinfection.
High level disinfection methods
• Liquid-chemical, for example glutaraldehyde 2% or an equivalent chemical that the hospital
uses for chemical high level disinfections. Always follow the manufacturer instructions for the
agent.
• Steam autoclave at maximum 134° C/273° F.

Disinfection frequency
The following parts should be considered for disinfection with the hospital protocols/frequency,
taking into account types of patients, risk of infections, cross contamination risks etc.
• Patient circuit tubing, manual bag tubing & connectors.
• Compact blocks and Standard Circuit absorber and valve.
• Ventilator bellows - bellows block including the APL and overflow valves.
NOTE: To help ensure correct operation of the compact blocks, Datex-Ohmeda recommends that they
are cleaned at least twice a week.
Microbial filter
When using a microbial filter, less cleaning and disinfection may be required, although, always
consider the type of patients, risk of infections, cross contamination risks etc. Fewer cleaning cycles
will increase the lifetime of the accessories and parts. It is essential that the filter provides effective
protection against bacteria, viruses and dust from CO2 absorbers. The filter needs to be placed close
to the patient to give proper protection, that is between the endotracheal tube and the D-lite sensor.
Datex-Ohmeda recommends that the filter and any parts between the filter and patient should be
replaced between patients. Prior to use, always read the “Instructions for use” for the filter.

Cleaning and disinfection

Figure 124 Patient circuit tubing & connectors

1. Disconnect the patient circuit hoses from the inspiratory and expiratory check valve
connectors.
2. Disinfect the hoses and connectors according to the methods described in “Disinfection
methods table” on page 144.
To prevent damage of the hose, hold the hose connector at the ends of the hose.
Hytrel reusable patient tubing
CAUTION The following solutions should not be used as they may cause disintegration of the
tubing: hypochlorite, phenol, formaldehyde, ketone, chlorinated hydrocarbons,
aromatic hydrocarbons, inorganic acids.
If autoclaving, use tube holders to prevent tubes coming into contact with hot elements, shelves etc.
in the autoclave itself.
Autoclaving or heat drying will affect the hytrel and may develop cracks or pin holes over time.
Autoclaving will eventually cause a slight color change of the tubing.
Storing
Avoid prolonged exposure to ultraviolet light. Ultraviolet light has a degenerative effect on the tubing
over time, causing the tubes to crack and pin holes to form.

Compact Blocks
Compact Block I and Compact Block II
There are two different Compact blocks, Compact Block I and Compact Block II. The difference
between the two blocks is that the Compact Block II can be autoclaved and is also equipped with a
water trap and a water container. The following instruction applies for both blocks unless otherwise
stated.
The Compact blocks can be used with either Datex-Ohmeda Compact Absorber Single use or Datex-
Ohmeda Compact Canister Reusable (both are herein referred to as Compact Absorber).

The following instruction describes different methods to clean and disinfect the Compact blocks. For
further information see the “Disinfection methods table” on page 144. For frequency and level of
disinfection, follow hospital routines. However, to help ensure correct operation of the Compact
blocks, Datex-Ohmeda recommends that they are cleaned at least twice a week.
There are two methods to clean the Compact blocks – manually or mechanically in a washer or
washer-disinfector (herein called washer-disinfector). Both methods are described below.

Mechanical cleaning and disinfection in washer-disinfector


Use Datex-Ohmeda Cleaning Cassette II (herein Cleaning Cassette II) for mechanical cleaning.
1. Disconnect the patient circuit hoses from the compact block.
2. Remove the Compact Absorber by pushing the latch (1) down and lifting the Compact Absorber
(2) off the compact block.

Leak detection and correction
The ADU checks for leaks during the System Check. Avoid making any modifications of the bellows
block assembly or to the patient circuit after the System Check as any new leaks may go unnoticed.
The best indication of a large leak is that the standing bellows does not reach the top of the chamber.
This is especially important with low fresh gas flows; less than 1 l/min.
During daily operation, the points most subject to a leak are the hoses, the compact block, the
absorber and the bellows chamber.
If the bellows block has been dismantled, the overflow valve and the bellows base rubber sealing
should be checked.
If the following instructions do not correct the leak, call for a service technician.

Leakage limits of the ADU


• The AUTO LEAK check fails when a leak is > 150 ml/min.
• The MAN LEAK check fails when a leak is > 100 ml/min.
• Measured compliance of the breathing system should be within 1.0 to 10.0 ml/cmH2O.
It is, however, up to the user to decide whether the leakage is acceptable or not.

Leakage during ventilation


When a patient is connected to the ADU, the actual leak is much less than that calculated in the leak
test. In clinical practice the EFFECTIVE MEAN PRESSURE during one complete ventilation cycle and
thus the actual leak is lower than during the leak test. In addition to the effective mean pressure, the
amount of the leak also depends on the rate of the pressure increase, the I:E RATIO and the plateau
time.

Inspiration Expiration Time

Figure 142 Effective mean pressure


In normal ventilation (mean pressure 10 cmH2O, I:E ratio 1:2) the actual leak is approximately 10% of
the leakage calculated during the leak test. This can be calculated with the following formula:
(Mean Pressure) * (Insp. time) * (Leakage in leak test)
(30 cmH2O) * (Cycle time)

NOTE: The best indication of a large leak is when the standing bellows does not reach the top of the
chamber. This is especially important with low fresh gas flows (< 1.0 l/min.).

Patient circuit hoses


Check the leakage of each patient hose (= 3 pcs).
1. Connect the hose to the ventilator connector under the bellows block, and to the fresh gas
outlet.
2. Repeat the AUTO LEAK test with each hose to check each individual hose for leaks.

Figure 143 Checking Hoses for Leakage

3. Repeat the AUTO LEAK test once more with normal hose connection.
If there still is a major leak, check the compact block.

168 Document No. 8501700-2


9 Troubleshooting

Compact block
1. Check visually that the O-rings are undamaged.
2. Remove the transparent valve covers.
3. Check that the insp./exp. valves are in good condition. Make sure they are correctly seated by
lifting the green membranes and carefully pushing the valves down with the fingers.
4. Replace the valve covers.
5. Check the ventilator connections.
6. Repeat the AUTO LEAK test.

Figure 144 Compact block leakage

If the above does not help, exchange the complete compact block and repeat the AUTO LEAK test.
If the compact block does not leak, check the bellows block.

Standard Circuit valve and absorber assembly


Also see the picture and a more detailed description of the Standard Patient circuit in the chapter
Cleaning and Maintenance.
• Check the hose connections.
Standard absorber assembly
• Lift up the absorber and check that the O-ring on the absorber base is correctly positioned and
that it is soft and tight.
• Push the absorber tightly onto the circuit block.
• Check that the absorber lock at the top is tightened.

Document No. 8501700-2 169

Inspiratory valve assembly


• Lift up the inspiratory valve assembly and check the O-ring.
• Push the valve assembly tightly into the absorber top lock.
• Tighten the valve dome locking ring.
Expiratory valve assembly
• Tighten the valve base locking ring.
• Tighten the valve dome locking ring.
For a more careful check, remove the dome and dome retaining ring of the absorber and check the
position of the O-rings and that they are soft and tight. If the Standard Circuit absorber and valve
assemblies are not leaking, check the bellows block.

Bellows
The functioning of the ADU bellows system is checked during the System Check. If there is a failure or
an alarm during operation, this is an indication of the following:
1. Failure situation
When the bellows does not reach its top position during automatic ventilation but only about half-
way, it is an indication of:
a) The patient is still ventilated but there is a leak. The leak is either:
• In the circuit
• In the D-lite connection site
• In the patient. During lung operations for instance, gases escape through the lung.
b) The volume in the circuit is not sufficient. This is, for instance, typical during low flow anesthesia
and when the sample gas is scavenged.
What to do: Find the leak or compensate the shortage of the fresh gas flow by increasing the fresh
gas flow or by bringing the sample gas back into the circuit.
2. Alarm situation
When the bellows collapses completely, the ADU gives an alarm and the message FILL BELLOWS
appears.
In this case the desired volume cannot be delivered and the patient cannot be ventilated.
What to do: Flush the bellows with O2 by pressing O2 flush button.

Bellows chamber positioning


The bellows chamber sealing might leak if the chamber has not been properly locked in its position or
it has been knocked to the side and is no longer standing upright.

2. Adjust the position of the bellows chamber.
3. Lock the bellows chamber by pressing down and twisting it into place. Press down the metal
locking ring around the bellows chamber and at the same time, push the handle.
4. Repeat the AUTO LEAK test.
If the bellows block has been disassembled for cleaning and disinfection, the rubber gasket under
the bellows chamber might be leaking. Check that the gasket is correctly seated.
The chamber may also be broken if it was incorrectly positioned while the locking handle was forced
into the locked position.

Overflow valve
Check that the bellows block overflow valve is correctly positioned. If not, open the overflow valve,
reassemble and repeat the AUTO LEAK check.

• Place the rubber membrane over the valve duct.

• Feel with the finger (wear gloves) along the edge to make
sure that the groove on the outer rim of the membrane sits
tightly on the outside wall of the duct.

• Check the tightness by lifting the membrane by the metal


weight. The membrane should flex slightly upwards but not
disconnect from the edges.

• Reassemble the overflow valve by entering (1) and then 2


turning (2) the valve retaining ring. Be careful not to tighten 1
it too hard, as the membrane may become kinked and
prone to leak.

WARNING If the overflow valve is placed incorrectly with the metal part facing downwards,
the pressure in the patient circuit may not be sufficient to guarantee adequate
patient ventilation.

Electronically controlled vaporizer and Aladin cassette


Electronically controlled vaporizer for delivery of five agents: Halothane, Isoflurane, Enflurane,
Sevoflurane and Desflurane.
The Aladin Cassettes can be handled safely without excessive leakage of anesthetic agent to the
environment.
NOTE: The ADU vaporizer performs as an ordinary concentration calibrated vaporizer regarding the
effects of varying ambient pressure. The nominal agent volume % setting is graduated at sea level
ambient pressure (760 mmHg). If the vaporizer is used at higher altitudes (decreased ambient
pressure), the delivered agent volume % will be higher than the set agent volume % in relation to the
decrease of the ambient pressure. This is due to the agent partial pressure being independent of the
ambient pressure.

Appendix A – Compressible volume
Compensation for compressible volume in the delivery system
1. Measurement of compressible volume
The compressible volume in the patient circuit (Compliance) is measured during the daily System
Check - AUTO Leak test - in the following way:
• The circuit is filled with O2 by the shunt valve in the O2 channel being opened to allow a
6 l/min. flow.
• The bellows either delivers a volume of 155 ml or any volume of a 27 cmH2O pressure,
whichever comes first.
• The pressure rise is measured by the pressure sensor in the ventilator port of the bellows block.
• The compressible volume is calculated using the following formula:
C = delivered volume / pressure change
The default value for the compressible volume is 2 ml/cmH2O. This value is kept low (in comparison
with the compressible volume of the patient circuit = 4.5 ml/cmH2O) in order to avoid the risks with
large volumes. The ”compliance” of a volume of 1 l is approximately 1 ml/cmH2O. The default value of
the compressible volume thus corresponds to a volume of 2 l, close to the volume of the bellows.
NOTE: 75 % of the volume is lost due to the contractility of the patient circuit gases. The remaining 25
% are lost due to the expansion of the circuit system.
2. Correction of compressible volume during ventilation
During ventilation the pressure is measured continuously. The volume added to the patient circuit to
compensate for lost volume due to compression, is:
Vcompl = Pplat - PEEP x C
(C is either the value calculated during the System Check or it is the default value.)
The volume delivered to the patient is calculated as follows:
Vpat = Vsyst - Vcompl + Vfgf
• Vpat is the volume set by the operator and thus delivered to the patient
• Vsyst is the volume delivered by the ventilator to the whole system (total integrated flow during
inspiration time)
• Vfgf is the fresh gas flow times inspiration time
For safety reasons the compressible volume is only compensated for to 75 % at Pplat values
exceeding 30 cm/H2O. For values over 45 cmH2O, the compensation is not increased at all.

5. Check that the Manual/Spont (MAN) mode is engaged.

6. Check and connect the gas sampling and spirometry lines and turn on the Anesthesia Monitor.
The lines need to be connected while the monitor performs the zeroing.
7. Check the monitor according to the instructions. (See Short Instructions for the Anesthesia
Monitor.)
8. Turn on the ADU with the On/Standby switch.
9. The ADU automatically performs the self-check (about 1 min.) for the ventilator driving gas part
and for the batteries.
10. Perform the daily System Check according to the instructions displayed on the main screen.

In manual/spontaneous ventilation the pressure limit and the filling of the bag is adjusted with the
APL valve (Airway Pressure Limiting valve). The adjustment range is 1.5 to 80 cmH2O.
For a spontaneously breathing patient, the APL valve should be fully open = 1.5 cmH2O. This is to
ensure a moderately filled manual bag (inspiratory reserve).
During manual ventilation, the APL adjusts the peak pressure in the patient circuit and the amount of
gas in the bag. If the pressure rises to the set pressure limit, normally between 20 to 40 cmH2O, the
valve opens and lets out excessive gas from the patient circuit.
NOTE: Manual ventilation is always operable when there is no power as long as the gas supplies are
connected.

Daily System Check


Daily System Check is easy to do by following the System Check menu on the ADU display.
The the daily System Check can in an emergency situation be bypassed by selecting Bypass Check.
WARNING The System Check is designed to ensure correct and safe function of the ADU. The
Bypass Check command on the System Check menu must only be used when
patient safety requires an immediate start-up procedure of anesthesia.
The checks may also be selected separately from the menu.
The System Check proceeds in the following way:

Full Check Checks Air, O2 and N2O pressure, scavenging, patient circuit and makes
other preparations for the automatic Full Check.
N2O Delivery Checks the delivery of adequate N2O flow and prevents the delivery of a
hypoxic mixture.
Agent Delivery Gas delivery check for anesthetic agent. The Aladin cassettes may also be
checked one by one through the separate Agent Delivery check.
AUTO Ventilation Checks the amount of internal and external leaks and calculates the
compressible volume of the Patient Circuit.
MAN Ventilation Checks for leaks in the respiratory tubes and in the manual bag.
Checklist Manual check of Suction, CO2 absorber, Gas cylinders, Insp./Exp. Valve,
Level indicator and Gas monitor.
Checklog Check record. The nine last error entries are shown in Error History.
Bypass Check Bypasses all the checks. Appears as a choice either if a Full Check has not
been successfully passed within 24 hours or there has been a ventilator/
fresh gas unit failure alarm since the check was passed.

NOTE: On an ADU configured to operate without N2O the System Check menu differ in some ways
from what is described in this chapter, for further information see “System Check performed on an
ADU without N2O” on page 89.
When a procedure is finished, the ADU automatically check marks the selection with a ✔ and moves
to the next step. If a procedure has already been carried out, the corresponding selection appears as
dimmed and chickenhearted. Confirm procedures by pushing the ComWheel.
• The instructions are displayed in the Help Field at the bottom of each menu page.

210 Document No. 8501700-2


13 Brief instructions

• When starting the checks, choose top row (Full Check) by pushing the ComWheel.
WARNING Always perform and confirm checks before connecting a patient to the ADU.
NOTE: Gas sampling monitors must be disconnected from the circuit during the check so that the gas
samples are not counted as leaks which may lead to a failed check.

Setting alarms
Select the correct alarm settings for the airway pressure in the Alarms Setup menu. To get to the
menu, push Alarms Setup key, or push the ComWheel and select Alarms Setup.
The patient circuit pressure is measured in the ventilator part of the bellows block. On the screen, the
circuit pressure scale displays the alarm limits for low (1) and high (2) airway pressures.

1 2

Figure 148 Circuit pressure scale

The functional safety limit for high airway pressure is Pmax Release (factory default = 40 cmH2O), (1)
in Figure 148. When the airway pressure exceeds the set limit, the ventilator cycles to expiration. The
Pmax Release limit must be set higher for patients who, for some reason, need higher ventilation
pressure. Raising the limit level is necessary for the ventilation of those patients. The limit for the high
airway pressure alarm cannot be set higher than Pmax Release, (2) in Figure 148. Default limit for the
high airway pressure is 30 cmH2O. When the pressure exceeds Ppeak High, an alarm sounds.

In the Anesthesia Monitor, verify the settings of the fresh gas delivery and ventilation from the ADU
before setting the alarms for FiO2, EtO2, EtCO2 and MV. After the check procedure and alarm settings,
the ADU is prepared to deliver anesthesia.

Adjusting fresh gas delivery


Fresh gas flows are adjusted with the needle valves. The flows are displayed on the screen as
bargraphs and digits (liters per minute). Fresh gas flows from a minimal value of 0.5 l/min. and
higher, are available. Additionally, O2 and N2O percentages as well as total flow values are displayed.
The ratio of O2 to N2O in the fresh gas flow is calculated, taking the used volatile anesthetic into
account.

Figure 150 Fresh gas values display.


NOTE: The ADU can also be configured to operate without N2O, for further information see
“Anesthesia Delivery Unit without N2O” on page 16.
Anesthetic agent concentration is set with the agent wheel. The scale and the set value are displayed
above the agent wheel. The value is the % of anesthetic agent in the fresh gas flow.

Agent wheel

212 Document No. 8501700-2


13 Brief instructions

Spirometry and real time inspiratory and expiratory values for all the gases (O2, N2O, volatile agent,
CO2) are measured and monitored with a D-lite or Pedi-lite sensor. The sensor should be placed next
to the patient’s airway in the Y-piece.
The degree of rebreathing and the composition of gases inspired by the patient is determined by the
fresh gas flow rate. When using low fresh gas flows, the fresh gas settings and inspired
concentrations may differ.
The lower the flow, the greater the difference. Thus, in a rebreathing system, the inspired
concentration may be significantly different from the set value. The difference is due to the fresh gas
being diluted by the expired gas.

Returning sampled gas


Returning the sampled gas to the scavenging system
The accumulation of nitrogen is reduced if the
sampled gas is connected directly to the
scavenging system.

Returning the sampled gas to the circle system


The sampled gas and room air may also be
returned to the circuit. The best place for
returning gas is under the bellows block, close to
the overflow valve.
NOTE: In addition to 200 ml of returned sample
gas, 30 ml/min. of room air is also added to the
returned gas. Room air serves as a reference gas
for O2 measurement.

Starting ventilation
Start the mechanical ventilation by turning the ventilation selector to Auto position. The ventilator will
use either the default factory settings or the settings pre-set by the user.

• A third way of accessing the ventilator menu is by pushing the ComWheel to display the Menu
Functions menu and select Ventilator.
Confirmation of a selected change of setting, can be achieved by either:
• Pushing the ComWheel
• Pushing the corresponding quick key
• Pushing any of the keys grouped around the display screen
This is also valid if Normal screen is pushed.
WARNING Pressing any of the keys grouped around the display directly after adjustment of a

To ensure adequate ventilation, be sure to have EtCO2 monitored. The quality of ventilation may be
estimated with the help of spirometry.

Monitor integration
The ADU measures the circuit pressure (= Pcirc) under the bellows block. The delivery unit also
transmits and displays numerical pressure values and corresponding curve.
The Anesthesia Monitor measures the airway pressure with the D-Lite, D-Lite+ or Pedi-Lite close to
the patient’s airway.
The different measurement sites result in different measured values. With the Anesthesia Monitor,
peak pressures are 2 to 3 cmH2O lower.
The Anesthesia Monitor keeps a check on all patient values for gases, spirometry and
hemodynamics.
The gas and spirometry values may be displayed on the ADU, showing set and measured values side
by side.
