ANE 510 - Anesthesia Laboratory I
(1 cr.) This course is the first of a three-semester sequence exploring the physical principles of measurements, operation of breathing circuits and mechanical ventilation. Students spend time in the lab setting up and running experiments, collecting data and building PowerPoint presentations that are delivered in class. Labs begin with the study of pressure measurements, flow and resistance, laminar and turbulent flow, Venturi principles, setting gas flows and concentrations, investigating carbon dioxide absorption, solubility and diffusivity of gases, time constants, compliance and resistance of breathing circuits, the circle breathing system, mechanical ventilation, and Mapleson breathing systems. Labs are built to complement material covered in courses ANE 520 Physical and Chemical Principles of Anesthesia and ANE 550 Anesthesia Delivery Systems. Every Year, Summer
