Using the CO
Measurement
2
Choose the appropriate airway adapter and connect it to the sensor
3
head. The airway adapter clicks into place when seated correctly.
To zero the sensor:
4
– expose the sensor to room air and keep it away from all sources of
CO
– in the setup menu for the CO
– When you see the message Zero done at <date and
time> on the status line, the zero calibration is finished and you
can begin monitoring.
5
Install the airway adapter at the proximal end of the circuit
between the elbow and the ventilator Y-section.
To prevent stress on the endotrachial tube, support the sensor and airway adapter.
WARNING
Position sensor cables and tubing carefully to avoid entanglement or potential strangulation. Do not
apply excessive tension to any cable.
Replace the airway adapter, if excessive moisture or secretions are observed in the tubing or if the CO
waveform changes unexpectedly without a change in patient status.
To avoid infection, use only sterilized, disinfected or disposable airway adapters.
Inspect the airway adapters prior to use. Do not use if airway adapter appears to have been damaged or
broken. Observe airway adapter color coding for patient population.
Preparing to Measure Sidestream CO
1
Plug the sensor cable into the monitor's CO
two minutes warm up time
Connect the cannula, airway adapter, or sample line as appropriate, to the
2
sensor. It will click into place when seated correctly.
To zero the sensor:
3
– expose the sensor to room air and keep it away from all sources of CO
including the ventilator, the patient's breath and your own.
– In the setup menu for the CO
including the ventilator, the patient's breath and your own.
