Designed for efficiency and flexibility, the nanoMediCO2™ capnograph module can be integrated into a wide range of host monitors and devices, including wearable applications. The technology automatically adjusts for changes in ambient temperature and barometric pressure, making it an excellent choice for engineering in-hospital, transport and at-home monitoring solutions. Powered by Microstream™ technology, the nanoMediCO2™ capnograph module provides etCO2, FiCO2, and respiration rate parameters with simple integration into existing platforms. It is backward-compatible with miniMediCO2™ OEM modules and microMediCO2™ OEM modules.


One-third less power, weight and volume. The NanoMediCO2™ capnograph module is 4th Edition compliant. Reduced power requirements help meet the USB 2.0 industry standard. The module is engineered to promote longer battery life and provide: 

  • Measurements of etCO2, FiCO2 and respiration rate values and trends
  • Clear, crisp waveforms and accurate respiratory rates
  • A single, integrated spectroscopy sensor for use across the healthcare continuum
  • CO2-specific infrared technology at a distinct wavelength
  • A low sampling rate of 50 mL per minute to allow for the monitoring of a wide range of patients — from neonates to adults
  • Measurements without impact from other gases (i.e., O2, N2O, He, or inhaled anesthetics)
  • Moisture handling to help reduce complications caused by clogged sampling lines

Accuracy and Workflow Algorithms

Standard Smart Capnography™ Algorithms

The nanoMediCO2™ capnograph module comes standard with two Smart Capnography™ algorithms to help ensure accuracy and streamline workflow:

  • Smart Alarm for Respiratory Analysis™ algorithm (SARA), engineered to recognize and reduce nuisance alarms.
  • Smart Breath Detection™ algorithm (SBD), designed to help mitigate the effect of artifact and enable monitoring for nonintubated general care floor patients.

Optional Smart Capnography™ Algorithms

To help enhance clinical support, the nanoMediCO2™ capnograph module may be upgraded to include:

  • Integrated Pulmonary Index™ algorithm (IPI), which incorporates four real-time respiratory measurements etCO2, respiratory rate, pulse oximetry, and pulse rate — into a single number that represents an inclusive respiratory profile.
  • Apnea-Sat Alert™ algorithm (ASA), to track and report apneas per hour to help clinicians identify and quantify recurrent apnea and desaturation events without additional equipment or changes to workflow.
  • Oxygen desaturation index (ODI), to measure the number of dips per hour in SpO2, 4 percent or lower from baseline, with a return to baseline in 240 seconds or less.
  • †As compared to Medtronic MicroMediCO2™ OEM Module.
