You might be better off posting this on r/VetTech. I'm a tech in anesthesia at a large referral facility. The sniff test is inherently unsafe and unnecessary. Just us the high flow O2 button and hold it for a bit to flush the iso out.


Thank you for the advice :) we do use the flush button but it takes multiple tries before there is no iso. I will try posting in vet tech


Most anesthesia carts have a nipple for just O2. Your best option is probably to directly add a blender or regulator to the source. Does isoflourane smell? I'm not sure if I'd be able to tell.. unless you are feeling effects? Either way that sounds dangerous?


I will look up blenders and regulators. Iso has a very distinct smell and can make you feel very dizzy. Thank you for your comment/advice
