12. When using an anesthetic evaporator, pay attention to the following: When slowly rotating the dial of the concentration adjustment knob, rotate it to the limit position and do not use force to rotate. Do not pull the density adjustment knob by hand.

13. Avoid flowmeter shock and vibration. Slowly turn the flow control knob. When the flow meter shows the maximum or minimum flow rate, do not use force to rotate.

14. The sterilized gas line pipe fittings, breathing circuit components, etc. should be properly installed in place, do not cause air leakage. After the installation, airtightness check should be performed. After the test is normal, the patient can be used.

15. Do not bend the cover sheet on the suction and exhalation flaps. Be very careful when cleaning, disassembling and disassembling. If it is damaged, it should be replaced in time.
