Yale Gassing Greener

The Yale Gassing Greener app aims to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from the use of inhaled anesthetics.

For individual case study by clinicians, the provider inputs the amounts and flow rates of the inhaled anesthetics being utilized. The facility calculator allows any personnel to input the amounts of inhaled anesthetics purchased by the facility. A comprehensive report will then be emailed to the user.
