What is a CO2 monitor?
A CO2 monitor measures the CO2 concentration of the exhaled air. This continues to check whether the patient breathes.
When is a CO2 monitor used?
In emergency medicine: If a patient is passed out, it must be checked whether the patient breathes. Only with this knowledge can emergency measures such as ventilation usingVentilation bag orVentilator be initiated.
In anesthesia: In order to ensure the safety of the patient in the event of anesthesia, it must be continuously checked whether he breathes. A CO2 monitor is ideal for this.
What do you have to pay attention to when buying CO2 monitors?
Would you just like to measure the CO2 content of the air weighing or other parameters?
If you just want to check whether your patient breathes, a CO2 monitor is sufficient for you. However, if you want to measure additional measurement values such as cardiac activity, oxygen saturation, blood pressure or body temperature, there is aPatient monitor The right choice for you.
Does it make sense to combine the CO2 measurement with a defibrillator?
If you want to use your CO2 monitor in emergency medicine, it can make sense to have breathing measured by the defibrillator. In an emergency, you don't have to work with several devices at the same time. Defibrillators that can also measure the CO2 in the air air are, for example, theSchiller Defiguard Touch 7 or theCustoms X Series CCT Defibrillator.
Patient monitor: If you want to measure vital body functions such as breathing, heart activity, oxygen saturation or blood pressure, a patient monitor is ideal. You can buy both mobile devices and stationary monitors from us.
Video Laryngoscope: In an emergency, you can significantly improve your view of the Larynx with a video laryngoscope, making it easier to secure difficult airways. This accessory is now standard in emergency medicine and is recommended in many guidelines.
Oxygen bottle: In the event of artificial ventilation, the use of medical oxygen is required by law. All oxygen bottles we sold are ownership bottles and can be filled again at low cost.
Oxygen pressure reducer: Oxygen must always be administered with the correct pressure tailored to the patient. To do this, you need an oxygen pressure reducer.
Ventilation device: With a ventilation device, you can ventilate your patient on a mobile and stationary in an emergency. Beating devices can be suitable for both controlled or spontaneous ventilation.
Ventilation bag: A ventilation bag enables manual ventilation and is ideal for emergencies. Even as a back-up for operations, there is usually always a ventilation bag.
Ventilation mask: So that you can take ventilation with oneVentilator orVentilation bag You also need a ventilation mask. This ventilation mask must be compatible with your device or bag and you have to make sure to have masks for children and adults.
