Case1 Difficulties with CO2
Even though CO2 is important and recommended by ASA/APSM Guidelines, we have a lot of difficulties as below;
- No portable CO2 monitor
- Delicate and easy to break, and short lifetime
- Long CO2 calibration and long warm-up
- Condensation or water trapped in sampling line
- Slow response, or long time to get results
- Difficult calibration
- Not available for child because of bulky size, dead space
Our CO2 technology solve all those difficulties
- BSM-1700 series (Life Scope PT) and OLG-3800 (cap-TEN) is portable and measure CO2 parameter
- Please see the detail; BSM-1700 series
- Durable enough for use in harsh environments
- The cap-ONE sensor has achieved an extremely light and small size with a weight of 4 mg and the dead space of 0.5 mL with infant airway adapter. Also, by using anti-fogging membrane, neither motor nor heater is required. cap-ONE is highly durable-withstands a drop test of 100 falls from a height of 2 m, a flex test of 5000 times with a 400 g load, and a water test with a 1 m for 30 minutes (IPX-7).
- No Calibration and No Warm-up
- Nihon Kohden’s mainstream CO2 sensors have a dedicated airway adapter with a unique anti-fogging membrane and no heater. After connecting the CO2 sensor, you can start CO2 measurement in just 5 seconds with no calibration or warm-up time.
- Though typical membranes on adapter cause water drops, our technology provide a reliable CO2 wave even under high humidity condition because of state of the arts technology of anti-fogging membrane.
- Fast response with small lag time
- Expose the CO2 sensor kit to the air and calibrate it with the connected airway adapter.
- cap-ONE performs with greater precision than side stream monitoring for nonintubated children (*1)
