o   Can be added to any anesthetic machine.

o   The same vaporizer delivers Isoflurane or Sevoflurane.

o   The rate of induction of inhalational anesthesia independent of fresh gas flow.

o   Can be added to any ventilator — even flow through ventilators or self-inflating bags to turn them into anesthetic delivery machines.

o   Can be used to delivery inhalation anesthesia in the operating room, intensive care unit, emergency department and even in the field during military operations or disasters.

o   Can be used with an anesthetic reflector to improve the efficiency of anesthetic delivery by an order of magnitude.
