Benefit from a Capnography Monitor in Your Medical Facility
No matter the style of medicine you practice, having a capnography monitor on hand makes good sense. Historically, capnographs were used primarily by anesthesiologists as a means of monitoring the end-tidal respiration of patients who were sedated. This helpful tool makes it easier to identify potential health concerns or problems that require attention. For instance, if an endotracheal tube becomes dislodged, a capnography monitor would indicate that the breathing apparatus has come out of position. However, there are more uses today for a capnography monitor than just with intubated patients.
At Infinium Medical, for instance, we have developed the Infinium CO2, which is a module that has a sidestream design, allowing for capnography measurement in non-intubated patients as well as those who have been intubated. This is important because a capnography monitor is increasingly being used as a diagnostic tool, not only identifying when an emergency situation arises but also providing vital signs data to physicians, which help inform diagnoses. For instance, the measurement of ETCO2 can be used to identify warning signs of conditions like hypoventilation, airway blockage, and apnea, among others.
Another advantage to the Infinium CO2 is that it can be quickly installed on any of our patient medical monitors in the field, transforming the vital signs display into a capnography monitor. And, because each of our monitors are highly portable, you can take your capnography equipment where you need it, when you need it. This is also beneficial since it allows consistent vital signs recording for mobile patients, as they are transferred from the operating room to recovery, for example.
