The Mapleson type D is one of the non-rebreathing systems used in pediatric general anes- thesia. Because it doesnt have soda lime, the fresh gas tlow (FGF) must be adjusted to the patient's size, body temperature and the anesthetic technique to prevent CO2 retention. We have used the FGF of 2-3.5 L/min according to patient's body weight, whether or not the patient has a fever. So, we examined arterial blood gas analysis in 3 pediatric patients with fever. We suggest that if a patient has a fever, it is desirable to inmease FGF to 5 L/min to prevent CO2 accumulation or acidosis.
Key Words: Mapleson type D; Fresh gas flow; Body temperature; PaCO2
