Reference Comments
Dr. Ray Matthews, John Sikora; Mark 7 respirator catalogue (see photocopy); "Ward's Anaesthetic Equipment", 3rd ed., by Andrew Davey, John T.B. Moyle and Crispian S. Ward, 1992, pp. 231-233 (see attached photocopies); CD #2
Research Facts
This is a pressure cycle respirator which depended on the compliance and resistance of the patient's
lungs to determine the volume of gas; the disadvantage of this respirator is that it had limited
applications; since it was pressure-dependent, the operator was never sure of volumes; this respirator
could not be used on neurological patients who did not breathe normally
