Isoflurane in isoflurane vaporizer

Hello! One of my technicians accidentally poured a small amount of Isoflurane INTO my sevoflurane vaporizer. Is there anything that I can do in house to alleviate this?

Empty the vaporizer and then run 100% O2 through it to dry the internal wicks thoroughly. Typically takes approx. 45 minutes to run it 1.5 hours to be safe and I would suggest a flow of 3-4 liters per minute. Then I would fill with sevo and test outputs of the vap with a gas analyzer. I would also question the tech as to why and how they did this........there are safety measures in place to avoid this from happening. Just my thoughts.

What equipment are you specifically referring to? Manufacturer/Model?
