Modern anesthesia delivery systems incorporate the following functional components: gas mixing device, breathing circuit, ventilator, waste gas scavenger system, and patient and system monitors. All modern vaporizers come equipped with an interlock mechanism, which prevent from more than one vaporizer being put to use at the same time, thus causing an accidental overdose.
