Product Description

AnaConDa is a disposable medical device which enables the administration of volatile anaesthetics (Isoflurane or Sevoflurane) and is connected between the Y-piece and ET-tube. The device has no electrical components and is MRI & CT scan compatible. It also acts as an excellent HME and contains an electrostatic bacterial/viral filter. This version has a dead space of 100ml and can function with tidal volumes as low as 350ml.

  • Reference Number: 26100
  • Use: Single Patient, 24 hour use
  • Device Classification: Class IIa
  • Shelf Life: 5 Years from Date of Manufacturing
  • Disposal: Normal hospital waste
  • Packaging unit: 1 unit contains 12 AnaConDa devices


Dosing is based on individual patient clinical requirements and is guided by clinical evaluation and reading of the Fet/MAC value on the gas monitor. The syringe pump rate is determined by the minute volume, end tidal concentration (Fet) or MAC requirements and the clinical needs of the patient. The following syringe pump rates are typical for Isoflurane or Sevoflurane.

Table 1a

Pump Rates
Fet Values
Isoflurane 2-7 ml/hr 0,2-0,7 %
Sevoflurane 4-10 ml/hr 0,5-1,4 %

This table gives is an approximate pump rate and concentration guide, other pump rates and concentrations can be achieved depending on clinical needs.

There is a higher patient uptake of the volatile during the first 10-30 minutes (Induction Phase) of administration. Adjustments to the pump rate will need to be made according to the measured end tidal concentration (Fet) or MAC and the clinical needs of the patient.

Please refer to “Instructions for Use” for more information.
