There are available breathing circuit types at a wide range in the market. The function of any breathing circuit is to deliver oxygen and anesthetic feasts, and excludecarbon dioxide. Carbon dioxide may beexcluded by either flop with acceptablefreshgasinflow (FGF), or by pop lime immersion.
Nexgen Medical's breathing circuit types are used for delivering oxygen and anesthetic agents and to countcarbon dioxide during anesthesia. They correspond of differentfactorsFreshgasflux, forcebag, breathingtubes, expiratory cock, and patientconnection.
Breathing system is an assembly of factors which connects case's airway to anesthesia machine through which controlledcomposition of gasamalgamation is allocated. A breathing circuit delivers gas to the case, removes departed gas and controls the temperature and humidity of the inspiredamalgamation. It allows robotic, controlled, or supported respiration. It may alsogiveharbors for gasslice, airway pressure, flux and volume monitoring.
There are five differentarrangements of factors of breathing system, i.e., freshgasflux, breathingtube, mask, forcebag, and expiratory cock. These are known as Mapleson systems.
Ideal breathing system should besimple, safe, or affordable, Suitable to deliverintended inspired gasamalgamation, Effective and allowlowfreshgasflux and suitable to cover cases from barotrauma. BreathingTubes are Largedrag, generally corrugated tubes, made of rubber or plastic.

Features of Breathing Circuit
This stopcock allows exhaledwastefeasts and freshgas flows to leave the breathing system when the pressure within the breathing system exceeds the stopcock's openingpressure
It's a one way, malleable, spring- loadedstopcock.
The spring adjusts the pressureneeded to open the stopcock.
The forcebag is an importantelement of utmost breathing systems. Made of antistatic rubber or plastic. Blackbags are antistatic whereas greenbags are made of low charging material which won't producedangerouscharges but will the bag from electric fields.
