Question

16B-102

Carbon monoxide production is increased with:
   A. Using Sevoflurane instead of Desflurane 
   B. Using dessicated soda lime 
   C. Using less NaOH and KOH 
   D. Using Baralyme 
   E. Increased fresh gas flows 


Comments

A. - No. Sevoflurane does not contain CFH2 moiety - thus does not produce CO
B. - True
C. - Using less NaOH and KOH - false. CO production due to reaction of volatile with CFH2 moiety with strong bases in desiccated absorbent (NaOH/KOH)
D. - Using Baralyme - True
E. - Increased fresh gas flows - True (as increased fresh gas flows will dry out CO2 absorbent).

?Best answer B.
