Description
Kinet-O-meter anaesthesia machine which consists of two heavy cylindrical metal poles on a metal stand with four wheels; the top of one pole has two tank hook-ups each, for oxygen, nitrous oxide and carbon dioxide, with regulator on top; the top of the other pole has a hook-up for cyclopropane which leads to a panel with four flow meters (for nitrous oxide, cyclopropane, carbon dioxide and oxygen) in cc/liters per minute; the four flow meters lead back to the tank hook-ups by tubes; behind the flow meters, there is a blood pressure cuff manometer with a rubber tube which would originally have had a rubber bulb; a metal valve in the front was to be hooked up to the patient (via a soda lime absorber) to administer a mix of the four gases; the back of the machine has a wrench attached permanently by a metal chain, for turning on cylinders of gas.

Research Facts
The four flow meter gauges at the front regulate the flow of nitrous oxide, cyclopropane, carbon dioxide and oxygen and were very inaccurate; carbon dioxide was used to stimulate patient respiration thus allowing quicker anaesthetizing; this model allows for two cylinders each of oxygen, nitrous oxide and carbon dioxide; this was an improvement over earlier models, as cylinders sometimes ran out of gas during operations; it was difficult to determine when the oxygen cylinder was empty and nitrous oxide pressure falls very quickly; with this model, if a tank ran dry, the patient could immediately be changed over to a full tank; another improvement was that the tanks were bigger than those in earlier models; the principle of this machine is the same as other machines in the same era; the regulators are single-stage regulators.

Research Facts
This machine mixed gases according to the doctor's instructions; this machine was used on children and adults for any type of surgery requiring anaesthesia; the disc flowmeter gauges were very inaccurate; the central switch could cause patient death if accidentally turned; this TO-FRO or CIRCLE switch could change the tubes leading to the patient from 1 to 2 (or the other way around, which could be fatal); the reducing valve reduced the pressure in the gas cylinder
