CapnoCare samples EtCO2 during critical situations and can be used with a resuscitation bag for intubated patients, a laryngeal mask, or an anaesthesia face mask.
The 22/15mm connectors can be used with ET tubes, laryngeal masks or anaesthesia face masks.
The filter protects the capnometer from condensation and contamination.
The pre-assembled monitoring line avoids the risk of accidental detachment and saves time in critical clinical situations.
Choice of Luer
Available in male, female and slip luer.
3m monitoring line enables connection to the capnometer even when the patient is at a distance.
Capnography provides the following vital information:
- Hypoventilation and hyperventilation
- Confirming, maintaining and assisting intubation
- Return of spontaneous circulation (ROSC)
- Measures cardiac output and chest compression effectiveness during cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR)
The European Resuscitation Council Guidelines for Resuscitation (2010)
Wavefom capnography is the most sensitive and specific way to confirm and continuously monitor the position of a tracheal tube in victims of cardiac arrest and should supplement clinical assessment and that this may also provide information on the efficiency of chest compressions and can give an early indication of return of spontaneous circulation”, that may be useful to guide the management of respiratory and/or circulatory failure.
