Case2 Is CO2 monitoring in an incubator limited to a transcutaneous Gas-Monitoring?
An incubator in NICU has a lot of moisture and fogging, it is difficult to monitoring CO2 through a sampling tube for carbon dioxide.
Therefore transcutaneous Gas-Monitoring has been used in an incubator.
However that has also other risk of burn injury including cutaneous vesicles.
Can we monitor CO2 safely in an incubator?
Our CO2 technology solve these difficulties.
- Moisture and fogging problems
- Burn injury
Moisture and Fogging Problems
Nihon Kohden's airway adapter has anti-fogging membrane.
cap-ONE sensor (Nihon Kohden CO2 technology) with connection of the adapter is the smallest, the weight is only 4 grams.
Dead space of airway adapter for neonate is only 0.5 ml. It is suitable for NICU.
Nihon Kohden’s CO2 monitoring technology has safe heater less system. It could prevent burn injuries.
Besides, Nihon Kohden’s CO2 monitoring technology acquires estimating carbon dioxide through exhalation not transcutaneous monitoring. Thereby it does not need transcutaneous Gas-Monitoring system.
