Most of us take the availability of anaesthesia for granted. But millions of people in the developing world are not so fortunate. In poor countries, many hospitals lack suitable anaesthetic equipment, medicines and trained staff and they have developed the Glostavent an anaesthetic machine designed for use in difficult environments. It combines draw over anaesthesia with an oxygen concentrator and a gas driven ventilator and is designed to be used in isolated hospitals in poor regions of the world. It has proved extremely popular as it can continue to function without interruption in the absence of oxygen or electricity and is extemely economical. It is now in use in over 50 countries. There is also a portable version a complete anaesthesia machine which is delivered in a container the size of a small suitcase and weighing less than 10Kg. Submitted by Dr Roger Eltringham.
