Capnography is an early indicator of adverse airway and respiratory issues. It can be used to monitor the severity of a patientís condition and the effectiveness of treatment. With Oridion Disposable CO2 sampling lines, EMS providers can immediately detect airway obstruction and other ventilation problems. The lines provide continuous feedback on the breathing and ventilatory status of patients in emergency care.
Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) assists spontaneously breathing patients in an EMS environment. With the PortO2Vent CPAPos system, airway pressure is regulated and oxygen is delivered on demand Ė reducing supplemental oxygen consumption.
