Overview

A powerful platform of Microstream™ capnography

The Microstream™ microMediCO2 OEM module is the core component of Microstream™ etCOmeasurement technology. Smaller and lower power than previous models, the microMediCO2 OEM module can be designed into an even wider range of host configurations.

With less power required, the Microstream™ microMediCO2 OEM module makes etCO2 monitoring simple and accurate, even in the smallest and most portable monitors.
