What about a manometer when using the non-rebreather? (I see there is one on the circle system)

The non-rebreather circuits we typically use in veterinary medicine do not have a pressure manometer. However, there is something called a Bain block which is an adapter that can be used with non-rebreather circuits that adds a pressure manometer. Great question Erin!

That always worried me too - the lack of pressure monitoring. So I finally bought a Bain block and absolutely love it! Encourage your practice to get one, I think it was less than $200 per machine. - Dr. Lesh
