  • 1. Mainstream and Sidestream CAPNOSTAT ® 3 Mainstream CO 2 Sensor LoFlo™Sidestream CO 2 Module
  • 2. Capnography
    • The standard-of-care
      • Capnography
        • Indicates a ventilatory event faster than any other type of monitoring
        • Provides a means for continuous, real-time monitoring of ventilation
        • Helps confirm ET tube placement
        • Enables you to provide the same level of care during procedural sedation as is required in the O.R.
  • 3.
    • Provides a time sensitive picture for the clinician as to the ongoing changes in a patient’s respiratory status during procedural sedation
      • Immediate and sensitive data regarding a patient’s respiratory status for assessing the safety of a repeat bolus of medicine in an inadequately sedated patient
  • 4.
    • Study comparing the CAPNOSTAT mainstream with Microstream ® sidestream
      • Study conducted in a neonatal NICU concluded that the CAPNOSTAT sensor is more accurate than Microstream at estimating PaCO 2 .

  • 5.
    • Procedural Sedation Study in the ED
      • When the criteria of an ETCO 2 >50 mmHg, an absolute change >10 mm Hg, or an absent waveform were applied, all respiratory distress was detected , not detected by pulse oximetry alone.
      • The CO 2 monitor represents an additional monitor that can add to the safety of procedural sedation by quickly detecting hypoventilation
    Miner JR, Heegaard W, Plummer D. End-tidal carbon dioxide monitoring during procedural sedation. Academy Emergency Medicine. 2002;9(4):275-80. Clinical Studies
  • 6.
    • Study comparing the CAPNOSTAT mainstream with Microstream sidestream in Emergency Medical Services
      • Environmental conditions, specifically changes in ambient temperature:
      • “ Under the conditions of low and changing ambient temperature (-20 degrees C, +22 degrees C), only the Tidal Wave (Respironics; mainstream) remained uninfluenced, whereas deviations of -12% and +15% were found with the NPB-75 (Microstream; sidestream)”.
    Biedler A, Wilhelm W, Mertzlufft F. [Portable capnographs in emergency care: a comparison of equipment] Anaesthesiol Reanim. 1999;24(3):71-8. Clinical Studies
  • 7. CAPNOSTAT Mainstream Sensor
    • Even under the harshest of airway conditions, the CAPNOSTAT sensor’s true single beam:
      • Successfully compensates for the presence of contaminates
      • Continues to operate
      • Provides accurate readings
    Jaffe, MB. Mainstream or sidestream capnography? Respironics-Novametrix White paper 1012102, August 2002.
  • 8. CAPNOSTAT Mainstream Sensor
    • Contaminate-free design
      • Disposable patient sampling cuvette ensures analyzer is not exposed to, or contaminated with patient secretions, moisture, etc.
      • Unaffected by patient secretions
        • Microstream sidestream systems are affected by patient secretions
      • Keeps defibrillator in service
      • Reduces maintenance costs

  • 10.
    • No sample gas is diverted from the patient
      • Typical sampling rates in sidestream systems run from 50cc to 250cc per minute
      • Because there is no sampling, the CAPNOSTAT sensor is free from sample line occlusion and waveform distortions
    • Heated sensor
      • The CAPNOSTAT sensor heats the sample cell windows keeping them dry, minimizing effects from airway moisture
    CAPNOSTAT Mainstream Sensor
  • 11. Benefits of Using the CAPNOSTAT Sensor
    • Superior solid state design for greater accuracy and robustness
    • Instantaneous analysis due to no delay time and 60ms rise time (other devices have greater than 2 second delay time with a rise time of 200-240ms)
      • Capnogram is displayed in 15 seconds, full specifications in 60 seconds
      • “ Crisp” waveform faithfully reflects airway ventilation
      • Better performance at higher respiratory rates
    • Relatively lightweight due to miniaturization and newer technologies
  • 12.
    • Low deadspace airway adapter is available for infants
    • Airway adapter serves as the sample cell and is disposable
    • Airway adapter is located in line with the patient

    • Of equal importance to the ETCO 2 value is the waveform which faithfully reflects what’s occurring.
      • Subtle changes in waveforms can indicate actual or impending problems with setup, airway mechanics, respiratory drive, cardiovascular systems, and other important conditions.
      • The shape and trends of the CO 2 waveforms contain valuable information that is not available from any other source.
  • 25. Clinical Summary
    • Capnography affords the clinician breath by breath trending of ETCO 2 and thus a noninvasive look at ventilation
      • Trending provides information on changes in ventilation and perfusion
