Soda lime does not regenerate. Instead, there has been a reversion of the indicator dye from purple to white.
Secondly, what is the use of soda lime in anesthesia? Soda lime is a mixture of NaOH & CaO chemicals, used in granular form in closed breathing environments, such as general anaesthesia, submarines, rebreathers and recompression chambers, to remove carbon dioxide from breathing gases to prevent CO2 retention and carbon dioxide poisoning.
Also Know, how does soda lime remove carbon dioxide?
Soda lime is a deposit of sodium hydroxide on quicklime. The latter absorbs the water in the sodium hydroxide solution, leaving a powder that stays dry when it absorbs some water. Both materials absorb carbon dioxide quite strongly, giving sodium and calcium carbonates. Opening a can of soda releases carbon dioxide.
