The Anaesthetic Conserving Device-S (AnaConDa-S; Sedana Medical) is a volatile anaesthetic delivery system to give isoflurane or sevoflurane to people who are invasively ventilated, usually in an intensive care setting. AnaConDa‑S is a single-use device (replaced every 24 hours or when needed). It is inserted into the breathing circuit of a ventilator between the ET‑tube and Y‑piece, replacing the heat and moisture exchanger.
