Infinity® etCO2 Pod and Module
The Infinity® etCO2 pod and module provides mainstream and sidestream measuring capabilities, enabling you to monitor adult, paediatric and neonatal* patients with the same unit.
An easy on-and-off connection to Infinity monitors
The pod offers easy on-and-off connection to all Infinity modular and configured monitors. The pod uses a lightweight, reusable sensor and non-dispersive infrared technology to measure end-tidal (expired) CO2 in respiratory gases – giving you a sensitive and accurate patient monitoring tool.
*Neonatal monitoring with mainstream configuration only
– Uses non-dispersive infrared technology to measure etCO2 from respiratory gases
– Provides both mainstream and sidestream etCO2 capabilities in the same unit
– Supports adult, pediatric and neonatal* patients
