5 Technician Sally is hyperventilating an anesthetized patient because the patient was hypoventilating and became light. Sally’s rebreathing bag has gone flaccid and needs additional oxygen and inhalant anesthetic so she can continue IPPV and return the patient back to an appropriate plane of anesthesia. Should Sally depress the flush valve to fill her rebreathing bag?
  1. Yes, this is the fastest way to fill her rebreathing bag so she can continue IPPV.
  2. No, the flush valve allows oxygen to flow at a higher pressure directly into the rebreathing bag and into the breathing circuit which could cause trauma to the patient.
  3. Yes, everyone does it and it seems to work.
  4. No, the flush valve bypasses the vaporizer and only delivers straight oxygen to the patient.
