Background and Aim: The many advantages of low-flow anesthesia are now recognized. Apart from its positive effects on the patient, it is clear that it is a method that all anesthetists should prefer with its positive effects on the ecological balance. Patients and Methods: This prospective, observational, cross-sectional study included 80 patients aged 18-65 years with an American Society of Anesthesiologists score of 1-2 (ASA I-II) who were scheduled for laparoscopic cholecystectomy. Results: Although the operation time and anesthesia duration were higher in the low anesthesia group group, sevoflurane consumption was lower. Considering the operation times, up to 60% savings were achieved. Conclusion: In our study, we safely applied low-flow anesthesia to our patients with advanced monitoring. We believe that low-flow anesthesia is advantageous in terms of both patients' health, ecological balance, and cost.
