Monitoring Without Regular Calibration

Microcap Plus for end-tidal CO2 monitoring on PCA pumps connects to the patient via a filter line. Able to monitor the entire respiratory cycle and displaying numeric reading and waveforms, the device is for both intubated and nonintubated cases, long- or short-term use and does not require regular calibration — only every 4,000 minutes of use. Clinicians can deliver oxygen through the same line.
