This system is mainly used with ventilated patients. The fresh gas flow is close to the patient and the APL valve is placed away from the patient. The risk of rebreathing in this circuit is high especially in patients who have a short expiratory pause or do not have an expiratory pause (infants). To overcome this problem a high FGF of 2-4 times of the patient’s minute volume is required to prevent all rebreathing. In practice some rebreathing is tolerated and in an adult FGF of 6-7 litres/minute will maintain a normal arterial CO2 tension.
