The Mini-Lack is an ideal alternative breathing system to the traditional Modified Ayres T piece and is intended for use with spontaneously breathing small animals. The Mini-Lack has a very low resistance exhaust valve which combined with the use of smooth bore patient tubing will not compromise the patients breathing. The mini-lack is also an extremely efficient and economical breathing system with flow rates as low as 1.3!
A study carried out by the Department of Clinical Veterinary Medicine, Cambridge University, that compared the Mini-Lack and Modified Ayres T Piece, concluded the Mini-Lack could be used at much lower fresh gas flow rates without compromising the cardiovascular or respiratory systems.

The following is an example that highlights the efficiency of a Mini-Lack Breathing System.
The use of a Capnograph enabled the anaesthetist to reduce the flowrate to the optimum level that ensured CO2 rebreathing did not occur.
Patient: 3kg domestic cat
Maintenance Flowrate: 400ml
Vaporiser Setting: 1.5% Halothane
Respiration Rate: 13 per minute
