WIDESCREEN™ Capnograph and Pulse Oximeter
The LifeSense II widescreen capnograph and pulse oximeter offers proven PureSAT® SpO2 and sidestream EtCO2 technologies for both intubated and non-intubated patients in a wide range of clinical settings. Easy to use, accurate, and cost-effective, LifeSense II is suitable for SpO2 and EtCO2 monitoring of patients in hospitals, sleep labs, and homecare.
The American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA) Standards for Basic Anesthetic Monitoring recommends monitoring for the presence of exhaled carbon dioxide during procedures where the patient is sedated. The ASA standard states “During moderate or deep sedation the adequacy of ventilation shall be evaluated by continual observation of qualitative clinical signs and monitoring for the presence of exhaled carbon dioxide.”
Although patient controlled analgesia (PCA) is effective for short-term pain relief, suppressed respiratory function caused by over-sedation is a significant risk for those patients.
