BSAVA Sponsored Anaesthetic Gas Monitoring Scheme 

Coltronics Systems Ltd operates the Anaesthetic Gas Monitoring Scheme and has since May 1998. The COSHH Regulations require any organisations using Anaesthetic Agents to regularly check that the waste gas levels are within a specific limit when based on an 8-hour Time Weighted Average. 

The maximum legal occupational exposure limits for the most common agents used by veterinary professionals are: 

  • Halothane 10ppm 
  • Isoflurane 50ppm 
  • Sevoflurane 60ppm 
  • Nitrous Oxide 100ppm 

These limits are based on an 8-hour Time Weighted Average (TWA). The Health and Safety Executive recommends routine testing every 14 months, however, annual testing is more manageable.

At Coltronics Systems Ltd, we manufacture a range of compact general anaesthetic gas machines that are designed specifically for veterinary practices. These range from portable, wall-mount, table-top and hybrid.  They are good value and provide maximum versatility making them ideal for practices.
