Arceole instructions for use

Important : before use, pull the plunger to remove the canula, to avoid possible plunger/syringe sticking. Then push the plunger back to its initial position.

Instruction : Mixed GAS+AIR




 
Plug syringe into canister
   
Push vertically
   
Twist to disconnect



 
Adjust the volume of gas required in the syringe for surgical use by expelling the extra volume
     

 
Draw in the desired volume of air to prepare the gas/air mixture
        
Remove the filter and quickly connect the capped injection needle. The mixture is ready to be injected



Recommended proportions :


To obtain a non-expansible gas, the mixtures recommended in the Arceole syringe are :

  GAS AIR
20% = 10ml 80% = 40ml
