How does a spirometer create a 'spirometer trace' with fluctuations and not a linear graph? Since oxygen is being used and carbon dioxide is absorbed by soda lime, why doesn't the volume of gas decrease at a constant rate?

    umm its not supposed to when anesthetist has it in use when pt is NOT under mild sedation , completely "knocked out" the body cannot perform regular breathing so it must be done manually since the body does also have carbon dioxide in the body not just only oxygen it is used to regulate the amount of each gas that is in the body to make sure there is intake of oxygen exhale carbon dioxide during breathing if this is not done there will be fatal consequences
