Features and Functions of Capnography Monitors

1. What is capnography monitor?

A capnography monitor is an instrument that monitors the partial pressure of carbon dioxide in the arterial blood. The commonly used sustainable and non-invasive methods for monitoring PaCO2 include end-tidal capnography monitoring and transcutaneous capnography monitoring, so according to the monitoring method, it can be divided into end-tidal capnography monitor and transcutaneous capnography monitor. End-tidal capnography monitors can be further divided into mainstream capnography monitors, side-stream capnography monitors, and capnography monitors sampled through nasopharyngeal catheters.

The capnography module is a field upgradeable plug-in module for maximum versatility in capnography monitoring. Our modules utilize a low flow (50ml/min) lateral flow approach and can be used for both intubating and non-intubating applications. Our sample line connections use filter cells to eliminate the possibility of cross-contamination. Simple patient connection sampling lines make the CO2 Module one of the lowest cost per patient end-tidal CO2 systems in the industry. We have capnography products and anesthesia multi-gas products. Carbon dioxide monitor products are divided into ETCO2 monitors and ETCO2 modules. Anesthesia multi-gas products are divided into anesthesia gas detectors and sensors. In addition, there are consumables to go with the above modules and displays.

2. The features and functions of the capnography monitor

Capnography for pain management: Patient-controlled analgesia (PCA) may depress respiratory function. Opioids may suppress breathing in patients undergoing pain management. Measuring end-tidal carbon dioxide (EtCO2) using capnography can quickly alert clinicians to symptoms of respiratory depression in patients, thereby avoiding coma or cardiac arrest.

Capnography for minor surgical sedation: The American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA) states, "During moderate to deep sedation, the adequacy of ventilation should be assessed by continuous observation of qualitative clinical signs and monitoring of the presence of exhaled carbon dioxide." Expiration End-tidal carbon dioxide (EtCO2) is the earliest indicator of respiratory complications during medical procedures.

Capnography for Sedated Dentistry: The American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons (AAOMS) states, "During moderate or deep sedation and general anesthesia, the adequacy of ventilation should be assessed by continuous observation or qualitative clinical signs and monitoring of exhaled carbon dioxide ."
