Deluxe Scientific Surgio Pvt. Ltd.

Anaesthesia rebreathing bags are also known as medical rebreathing bags. It acts like a reservoir for gases during anaesthesia that is why it is also known as the “Reservoir Bag”.

Our bags are self-inflating and come with a bag, an inlet port for oxygen, an adaptor, an oxygen reservoir, and a pressure relief or pop-up valve. The capacity of the bag ranges between 0.50 and 3.00 litres. The bags are easy to clean and are easy to use with machines

Overview of Reservoir bags:

“Watch the bag…” is a common expression heard in the operation theatre; here the ‘bag’ refers to a reservoir bag which is a crucial component of an anaesthetic circuit. The bag functions by providing the much require ventilation to the patient while being attached to the anaesthetic circuit or the resuscitation circuit.


Functioning: The primary function of any breathing circuit is to deliver oxygen and anaesthetic gases to a patient while elimination carbon dioxide. Rebreathing circuit directs the expired gases through a soda-lime canister for absorption of carbon dioxide and then is rebreathed by the patient because of the unidirectional valves.

Usage: Anaesthesia rebreathing bag should be normally pressed every fourth second to maintain a respiratory arte of 15 per minute. The bag should also be pressed adequately to meet the body’s requirement so that oxygen is delivered and carbon dioxide is removed properly.

The main advantage to the self-inflating bag is its ease of use. The bag provides a rapid means of ventilating a child in the case of an emergency and it doesn’t require an oxygen source, although only room air (21%) oxygen is delivered unless supplemental oxygen is provided.
