Anaesthetic Gas Monitoring
Many professionals, including doctors, nurses, dentists and vets use anaesthetic gases on a regular basis. Continuous exposure to these gases can be harmful, so monitoring of both personal exposure and ambient concentrations is important.
Potential implications of continual worker exposure to anaesthetic gases:
- Respiratory irritation, e.g. coughing.
- Reproductive effects.
- Long-term monitoring of ambient concentrations
- Personal exposure monitoring for healthcare professionals and vets – eight-hour monitoring periods for comparison with time-weighted average exposure limits
- Pumped or passive sampling
