AbstractThe hazards of fire and explosion in operating rooms may too easily be treated as minor details. Architects, engineers and hospital administrators should be aware of the special nature of the equipment and facilities that can be provided. Full advantage of these facilities can be realized only if the operating room staff institute certain procedures and take certain precautions to avoid the sources of ignition of anaesthetic gases.
