The use of volatile anesthetics as sedatives in the intensive care unit is relevant to the patient’s outcome. We compared anesthetic gas consumption of the conventional semi-closed Aisys CSTM with the MIRUSTM system, which is the first anesthetic gas reflector system that can administer desflurane in addition to isoflurane and sevoflurane. We connected an artificial lung model to either a MIRUSTM system and a Puritan BennettTM 840 ventilator or an Aisys CSTM anesthesia machine. We found that consumption of 0.5% isoflurane, which corresponds to the target concentration 0.5 MAC, was averaged to 2 mL/h in the MIRUSTM system, which is identical to the Aisys CSTM at a fresh gas flow (FGF) of 1.0 L/min. MIRUSTM consumption of 1% sevoflurane was averaged to 10 mL/h, which corresponds to 8.4 mL/h at FGF 2.5 L/min. The MIRUSTM system consumed 3% or 4% desflurane at an average of 13.0 mL/h or 21.3 mL/h, which is between the consumption at 1.0 L/min and 2.5 L/min FGF. Thus, the MIRUSTM system can effectively deliver volatile anesthetics in clinically relevant concentrations in a similar rate as a conventional circular breathing system at FGFs between 1.0 L/min and 2.5 L/min.
