Applying the Sampling Line to the Patient
Select the patient sampling line that is appropriate for the patient size and application. Patient
sampling lines with the airway adapter are intended for use with breathing circuits and
anesthesia circuits that have an integrated airway adapter.
Patient sampling lines are intended for single-patient use only. Do not clean or disinfect these
items. Follow your hospital's guidelines for appropriate disposal. Reuse of single-use devices
can result in spread of patient infection, degradation of monitoring performance, or

7‐6 Monitoring CO2 (LoFlo Option)
The accuracy of the data is greatly influenced by the proper use and fitting of the patient
sampling line to ensure proper sampling without the introduction of outside air.
Remove the patient sampling line from the CO2 port when not in use.
Ensure that the sampling line is clean, dry and undamaged. Replace
the line if necessary.
Insert the sampling line connector into the CO2 port (see page 7‐4).
A click will be heard when properly inserted.
Position the cannula on the patient's face by
inserting the nasal prongs into the nostrils.
Pass the tubing over the ears and behind the head,
ensuring the patient's head will not rest on any part
of the cannula while the patient is lying down.
Slide the sleeve toward the patient's head to assure a
good fit of the cannula.
If using the sampling line with the airway adapter, proceed to step
7; otherwise go to step 8.
