The Anaesthetic Impact Calculator

Anaesthetic Impact Calculator

In anaesthesia, a mobile app has been developed by Dr Tom Pierce, Environmental Advisor to the President, to help clinicians understand the impact of regularly used gases (including sevoflurane, isoflurane and desflurane). The Anaesthetic Impact Calculator allows clinicians to calculate and compare the CO2e of inhaled anaesthesia agents and carrier gases.

The Anaesthetic Impact Calculator app is available free in both iOS and Android versions. The instructions for use are on the Help page. The current iteration has been modified to calculate the CO2e of volatile anaesthesia when ETcontrol is being used in conjunction with an Aladin Cassette.

The calculator is badged with the Association of Anaesthetists
