Case1 Difficulties with CO2

Even though CO2 is important and recommended by ASA/APSM Guidelines, we have a lot of difficulties as below;

  1. No portable CO2 monitor
  2. Delicate and easy to break, and short lifetime
  3. Long CO2 calibration and long warm-up
  4. Condensation or water trapped in sampling line
  5. Slow response, or long time to get results
  6. Difficult calibration 
  7. Not available for child because of bulky size, dead space

Our CO2 technology solve all those difficulties

  1. BSM-1700 series (Life Scope PT) and OLG-3800 (cap-TEN) is portable and measure CO2 parameter 
  2. 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). 
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. Fast response with small lag time
  6. Expose the CO2 sensor to the air and calibrate it with the connected airway adapter.
  7. cap-ONE performs with greater precision than side stream monitoring for nonintubated children (*1)
