    Does anyone have any published data on the average flow rate of the WAGD circuit for anesthesia machines? I have seen numerous places refer to 40LPM, but when asked the answers are usually along the lines of "that's just how it's always been".
    So is 40 lpm a good number? Overstated? Understated?

    There is no flow rate for waste anesthetic gases at the outlet.
