To help verify endotracheal tube placement

With the Nellcor™ adult/pediatric colorimetric CO2 detector clinicians can confirm proper endotracheal tube (ETT) placement by assessing exhaled CO2.

The detector attaches directly to the endotracheal tube and responds quickly to exhaled CO2 by changing from purple to yellow.
