Mapleson C circuit

Figure 1: The Mapleson C system

This circuit is also known as the Water's circuit without an absorber. It is similar in construction to the Mapleson B, but the main tubing is shorter. A fresh gas flow equal to twice the minute ventilation is required to prevent rebreathing. CO2 builds up slowly with this circuit.
