Capnography and CO2 Monitoring
Capnography provides clinicians with instant vital information on the respiratory and ventilation status of a patient. Continuous monitoring of EtCO2 is recommended by the EBA, AAGBI, and ASA for all patients undergoing moderate or deep sedation and those recovering from anaesthesia. For use with side stream capnometers, Dual Mask not only provides EtCO2 monitoring, but also delivers simultaneous supplementary oxygen
The Dual Oxygen Mask provides continual monitoring of carbon dioxide exhaled from both the mouth and nose, whilst delivering supplemental oxygen to the patient.
The stepped positioning of the oxygen inlet and CO2 port means that during exhalation the oxygen is diverted away, ensuring a strong, reliable trace capnography trace.
The integrated oxygen and sampling line makes fitting the mask a quick and simple operation, but also avoids the risk of the accidental dissociation from the mask.
Dual Mask is available in Adult and Paediatric with different tube lengths, a choice of male or female leur connectors to suit all side stream capnometers, and the option of a protective hydrophobic filter, meeting all individual requirements.
