Description

A CO2 (carbon dioxide) nasal cannula is a medical device used to deliver supplemental carbon dioxide to patients during certain medical procedures or conditions. Unlike traditional oxygen nasal cannulas, which deliver oxygen, a CO2 nasal cannula administers carbon dioxide gas.

Here’s how it typically works:

  • Placement: The CO2 nasal cannula is inserted into the patient’s nostrils just like an oxygen nasal cannula.
  • Connection: The cannula is connected to a source of carbon dioxide gas, often through tubing connected to a tank or a specialized CO2 delivery system.
  • Flow Rate: The flow rate of carbon dioxide delivered through the cannula is controlled based on the patient’s needs and the medical procedure being performed.

CO2 nasal cannulas are commonly used in certain medical procedures and conditions where maintaining appropriate levels of carbon dioxide in the body is important. For example:

  • Capnography: During procedures such as endoscopy or bronchoscopy, CO2 nasal cannulas are used to monitor the patient’s exhaled carbon dioxide levels, which can provide valuable information about the patient’s respiratory status and help ensure the safety of the procedure.
  • Respiratory Support: In some cases of respiratory failure or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), administering controlled amounts of carbon dioxide can help stimulate breathing and improve respiratory function.
  • Anaesthesia: CO2 nasal cannulas may be used during anaesthesia administration to help regulate the patient’s respiratory rate and maintain appropriate carbon dioxide levels in the bloodstream.

Overall, CO2 nasal cannulas play a crucial role in various medical settings where monitoring and controlling carbon dioxide levels are necessary for patient care and safety.
