Use of the common gas outlet for supplementary oxygen during Caesarean section.

Edsell ME; Erasmus PD.

The authors respond to reports of problems with common gas outlets and describe a forcing function put in place at their hospital to minimize such incidents. For a detailed discussion of a very similar case, in which a patient with respiratory distress received compressed air instead of high-flow oxygen, see the AHRQ WebM&M commentary by Dr. David Gaba.
