Capnography is becoming recognized as a critical component of patient monitoring. Capnography is the measurement of carbon dioxide concentration within exhaled gases, and serves as a monitor of partial pressure in the arterial blood. Paramedics and medical professionals utilize capnography monitoring to ensure that respiration remains steady during intubation and during anesthesia – a rise in the ETC02 levels can be an indicator of hypoventilation, drops can indicate hyperventilation. Particularly in critical care environments and with patients who have pre-existing respiratory issues, a capnography monitor can prove to be a life-saving tool by helping to diagnose these issues swiftly.
Capnography was once something limited to only the ICU, but this capability is now available in a consumer product. The LifeSense Tabletop Capnography and Pulse Oximetry Monitor is one of the only products available which allows for continuous EtCO2 monitoring in a compact package. Engineered by the experts at Nonin, the LifeSense Monitor provides accurate EtC02 and Sp02 monitoring in seconds – a key component in critical care situations.
