Capnometer is a tool to measures carbon dioxide concentration in expired gases. Capnometer is used during anesthesia and intensive care. Capnography is considered a standard of care during anesthesia. Assessment of the need to use capnography with a specific patient should be guided by the clinical situation.
Pulse oximeter is a medical device that indirectly monitors the oxygen saturation of a patient’s blood and changes in blood volume in the skin. It is often attached to a medical monitor so staff can see a patient’s oxygenation at all times. A blood-oxygen monitor displays the percentage of arterial hemoglobin in the oxyhemoglobin configuration. (continue reading…)

The capnograph provides information about the amount of carbon dioxide exhaled and inhaled. It does this by measuring the absorption of infrared light, which is absorbed particularly well by carbon dioxide. The capnograph displays a waveform of CO2 (measured in kiloPascals or millimeters of mercury) and it displays the value of the CO2 at the end of exhalation, which is known as the end-tidal CO2.
Features: Visual and audible alarm signals, End tidal CO2 numeric value, End tidal CO2 wave form and respiration rate, Sidestream technology for application with intubated and non-intubated patients, Optional infrared printer, Adjustable alarm limits. (continue reading…)
