SmithÌs Medical Capnocheck


Capnometry is a wonderful tool. It lets you know when gas exchange is taking place in the lungs and enables you to adjust the ventilation rate and oxygen concentration to keep the EtCO2 reading within the normal range (35Ò45 mm Hg). The new Capnocheck from Smiths Medical is a lightweight, pocket-sized device thatÌs easily placed between the bag-valve mask and the advanced airway to display EtCO2 levels and the respiratory rate.Ü

Available with or without an alarm feature, the battery-powered (2 AAA) Capnocheck doesnÌt require warm-up time or routine calibration. And the readable LED numbers beat trying to verify the color changes of similar-sized EtCO2 devices.


Weight: 2.1 oz.

Size: 2.2" x 1.8"

Cost: $1,066 ($1,388 with alarms)
