Case1 Efficiency of the Mask
In the case of oxygenation, it is confusing to choose and change oxygen cannulas and masks, etc. because it depends on the patient’s oxygen consistency. Also, it incurs management costs. Is there any way we can solve these issues?
Nihon Kohden's cap-ONE mask can solve these issues. With cap-ONE mask, we can supply oxygen at a flow rate between 2 L/min and 8 L/min (40 and 55% using 100% oxygen) with just one mask.* In addition, cap-ONE mask can be used at several sites, so we are able to shorten the time required to choose a suitable mask and reduce the management cost and labours when disposing of it.
It can also measure ETCO2, which is required by STANDARDS FOR BASIC ANESTHETIC MONITORING -approved by the ASA House of Delegates, ver. 2011 & 2015, which states that “the adequacy of ventilation shall be evaluated by continual observation of qualitative clinical signs and monitoring for the presence of exhaled carbon dioxide”; which means measuring ETCO2 is becoming a general standard.
* This is different in the case of high oxygen concentrations.
