Waste Gas Analysis
We can provide scheduled visits to monitor occupational exposure to nitrous oxide and halogenated anesthetic agents. The program includes in-depth ventilation analysis and leak detection in ancillary locations.
Our reports represent true levels of Nitrous Oxide in the locations measured and the levels indicated within a tolerance of +/- 1.0 Parts Per Million, or 5.0% of the reading, whichever is greater.
As the levels of Nitrous Oxide are subject to significant fluctuations dependent on the exhaust system, the varied use of equipment, and operating techniques: and, in as much as equipment must be constantly maintained to ensure a no-leak or low-leak state.
NIOSH criteria for recommended standard occupational exposure to waste anesthetic gases:
77-140; CDC 94-1, JCAHO: EC 1.5
