NEW BCI® capnometer

Monday, 4 Jun, 2007

Smiths Medical PM, Inc. is pleased to introduce the launch of the BCI® Capnocheck® capnometer. This pocket-sized, fully quantitative capnometer monitors carbon dioxide concentrations and respiratory rate in one easy-to-use device. The Capnocheck® capnometer uses miniaturized mainstream ETCO2 technology, providing unmatched accuracy in a lightweight, cost effective capnometer.

Unlike other capnometers, the Capnocheck® capnometer does not need routine calibration. Powered by two AAA batteries, the device has multiple applications including intubation verification, an indicator for return of spontaneous circulation, routine airway management, ventilator transport and weaning. Unlike colorimetric and other qualitative mechanical devices, the Capnocheck® capnometer provides a fully quantitative numeric value that is now recommended in the American Heart Association (AHA) 2005 guidelines. During resuscitation the Capnocheck® capnometer can be an effective noninvasive indicator of cardiac output, CPR effectiveness, and indicator for return of spontaneous circulation. The device’s simple operation and accuracy make it an invaluable tool in all areas of clinical practice.
