Abstract:Environmental monitoring of nitrous oxide and volatile agents was carried out between August 1996 and October 1997 within operating theatre areas in eight hospitals within the Bro Taf Health Authority. Static monitoring and personal sampling were undertaken to assess compliance with the Occupational Exposure Standards introduced in January 1996 by the Health and Safety Executive for anaesthetic agents. The monitoring concentrated on nitrous oxide with the results showing that compliance was being achieved. Limited monitoring was carried out of the volatile agents, which again were well below the Occupational Exposure Limits. Monitoring was also carried out in nontheatre areas in which anaesthetic agents were used. The results show that many of these locations, such as delivery suites and radiology units, have inadequate ventilation and no anaesthetic gas scavenging, both of which combined to produce levels that exceeded the standards.
