Model Number: NH-13191

Brand: Niche Healthcare

  • Soft, form-fitting for comfort
  • Simple, fast hook up to CO2 monitor and oxygen
  • Unique bevel tip sample tube to capture CO2 samples
  • Star lumen non-kinking O2-supply tubing
  • Latex free

Our CO2 sampling mask is a consistent means to monitor breathing of a non-intubated patient, allowing sampling of exhaled carbon dioxide from both the month and nose while at the same time administering oxygen. It is made from clear medical grade resin. The mask is soft and allows form-fitting comfort for the face. The tube is non-kinkable (Star lumen). The design masks it simple and fast to hook up to oxygen.



A CO2 sampling mask, also known as a capnography mask, is a medical device used to measure the concentration of carbon dioxide (CO2) in a patient’s exhaled breath. Capnography is a valuable tool in healthcare, and the use of CO2 sampling masks offers several benefits in the National Health Service (NHS) and similar healthcare settings:

  1. Continuous Monitoring of End-Tidal CO2 (EtCO2): CO2 sampling masks enable the continuous monitoring of end-tidal CO2 levels during respiratory and ventilatory assessments. This real-time measurement provides valuable information about the patient’s respiratory status.

  2. Early Detection of Ventilation Issues: Capnography helps in the early detection of ventilation problems, such as hypoventilation or hyperventilation. Monitoring EtCO2 levels allows healthcare providers to promptly identify changes in the patient’s respiratory pattern.

  3. Confirmation of Endotracheal Tube Placement: In intubated patients, capnography is a reliable method for confirming proper endotracheal tube placement. It helps differentiate between tracheal and esophageal intubation by assessing the presence or absence of exhaled CO2.

  4. Monitoring of Respiratory Rate: CO2 sampling masks provide an accurate measurement of respiratory rate by analyzing the frequency of CO2 exhalation. This information is valuable for assessing the adequacy of ventilation.

  5. Assessment of Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) Effectiveness: Capnography is used during CPR to assess the effectiveness of chest compressions and ventilation. It provides real-time feedback on the quality of CPR and helps optimize resuscitation efforts.

  6. Identification of Airway Obstruction: Changes in the capnography waveform can indicate airway obstruction or respiratory distress. Continuous monitoring with a CO2 sampling mask helps identify and address potential issues promptly.

  7. Monitoring Sedated or Anesthetized Patients: Capnography is commonly used during anesthesia to monitor patients’ respiratory status. CO2 sampling masks provide continuous feedback on the patient’s ventilation, helping anesthesiologists manage anesthesia depth and respiratory parameters.

  8. Titration of Mechanical Ventilation: In mechanically ventilated patients, capnography aids in titrating ventilator settings to achieve optimal ventilation. It helps prevent complications such as barotrauma or inadequate ventilation.

  9. Assessment of Pulmonary Perfusion: Capnography can provide information about pulmonary perfusion by assessing the shape and pattern of the CO2 waveform. Changes in the waveform may indicate alterations in cardiac output or pulmonary blood flow.

  10. Non-Invasive Monitoring: CO2 sampling masks offer a non-invasive method for monitoring CO2 levels. This is particularly advantageous compared to invasive methods, such as arterial blood gas sampling, for continuous monitoring in various clinical scenarios.

  11. Early Warning for Respiratory Distress: Capnography serves as an early warning system for respiratory distress. Changes in EtCO2 levels or waveform abnormalities can prompt healthcare providers to intervene before respiratory compromise becomes severe.

  12. Use in Pre-hospital and Emergency Settings: CO2 sampling masks are valuable in pre-hospital and emergency settings, allowing paramedics and emergency medical personnel to assess respiratory status and make informed decisions during patient transport.

  13. Objective Monitoring in Critical Care: In critical care settings, capnography provides an objective and quantifiable measure of respiratory function. It complements other monitoring parameters and aids in comprehensive patient assessment.

  14. Enhanced Patient Safety: Continuous monitoring with CO2 sampling masks contributes to enhanced patient safety by allowing for early detection of respiratory abnormalities, preventing complications, and guiding appropriate interventions.

Overall, CO2 sampling masks play a crucial role in respiratory monitoring, ventilation management, and patient safety across a range of clinical settings in the NHS. They provide valuable information that assists healthcare providers in delivering optimal respiratory care and improving patient outcomes.
