The innovative design of the GE CapnoFlex LF Sidestream CO2 Module has no moving parts making it rugged and accurate. The CapnoFlex uses non-dispersive infrared absorption (NDIR) analysis to continuously measure inspired CO2, expired CO2, and respiration rate. This CO2 module can connect to the Dash series patient monitors.
- The sensor simply snaps onto the airway adapter which is connected to the endotracheal tube in the breathing circuit.
- A crisp, accurate, diagnostic waveform is displayed within 30 seconds and is completely operational within 2 min.
- Intubated patients from adult to neonate are measured with the mainstream Capnostat CO2 sensor.
- A wide selection of airway adapters are available including disposable/reusable, adult/neonatal. Mainstream CO2 technology significantly improves secretion handling and response time from that found in sidestream systems.
