COMFORT IS
PATIENT COMPLIANCE

Helping your patients feel more comfortable wearing a sampling line may help improve compliance. That’s why we’ve focused on improving comfort.

  • An improved neutral scent is intended to reduce sensitivity to smell
  • Soft tubing is designed to lay gently on the patient's face to help reduce irritation
  • The drying element has been moved further down the tubing, away from the patient's face on long-duration sampling lines

COMFORT IS
TECHNOLOGY YOU CAN TRUST

Improved sampling line design offers the reliability and accuracy you’ve come to expect from Microstream™ technology.

  • Kink-resistant tubing is engineered to help mitigate interrupted oxygen flow and resulting alarms
  • Oxygen is delivered in a cloud from pinholes around the mouth and nose helping to ensure delivery without diluting measurements or waveforms
  • Uni-junction™ technology is designed for effective sampling from both nares and the mouth, even at low tidal volumes

COMFORT IS
IMPROVED USABILITY

Our redesigned packaging helps you quickly identify and place the right sampling line for each patient.

  • Improved, easy-tear opening.
  • Extended duration clearly labeled
  • Easy to follow step-by-step instructions
  • SKUs are letter-coded so you easily know the type of sampling line and what’s included

COMFORT IS
STREAMLINED ORDERING

We’re here to help the ordering process go smoothly. With our quick reference order guide, you can update your SKUs easily to the latest Microstream™ sampling lines.

COMFORT IS
CONTINUAL RESEARCH

Understanding Respiratory Compromise

Our mission — to alleviate pain, restore health and extend life — guides everything we do, including meticulous standards-based research, development, and testing.

In capnography, understanding respiratory compromise is key to continual advances. We're committed to raising awareness, providing education and encouraging research of respiratory compromise.

COMFORT IS
GETTING THE SUPPORT YOU NEED

We're your partner through every step of the capnography process — providing you the education, service, and support you need.

  • † Hypoxia was reduced from 7.8% to 3.7%. -52.56%=((3.7 -7.8)/7.8) X 100.

  •  Compared to routine monitoring without capnography. Respiratory compromise defined as RR < 6 BPM, apnea > 20 seconds, etCO2 < 60 mmHg, or SpO2 < 88%.
