Model Number: NH-13171

Brand: Niche Healthcare

Directions for use:
  • Attach the oxygen supply tubing to the oxygen source and attach the sampling tube to the monitoring device.
  • Set the oxygen to the prescribed flow and check for gas flow throughout the device.
  • Insert the nasal tips into the nostrils with the two lariat tubes over the ears and under the chin.
  • Gently adjust the slide until the cannula is secure.


End-tidal carbon dioxide (ETCO2) monitoring is a non-invasive method used to measure the partial pressure of carbon dioxide at the end of an exhaled breath. While there is no specific device commonly referred to as an “ETCO2 Nasal Cannula,” there are capnography systems that incorporate nasal cannulas for ETCO2 monitoring. Here are the potential healthcare benefits of using ETCO2 monitoring, including the use of nasal cannulas for this purpose, in the National Health Service (NHS) or similar healthcare settings:

  1. Respiratory Monitoring: ETCO2 monitoring provides continuous and real-time information about the patient’s respiratory status. It helps healthcare providers assess the adequacy of ventilation and detect changes in respiratory patterns.

  2. Confirmation of Endotracheal Tube Placement: ETCO2 monitoring, especially when used with a capnography system and a nasal cannula, is a valuable tool to confirm the correct placement of an endotracheal tube (ETT) during intubation. A sudden increase in ETCO2 indicates successful intubation, as it confirms that the tube is in the trachea.

  3. Early Detection of Respiratory Compromise: Monitoring ETCO2 levels aids in the early detection of respiratory compromise or failure. Sudden changes in ETCO2 levels can indicate respiratory distress, allowing prompt intervention and preventing complications.

  4. Assessment of Ventilation Effectiveness: ETCO2 monitoring helps assess the effectiveness of ventilation, whether delivered through mechanical ventilation or spontaneous breathing. It provides information about the elimination of carbon dioxide from the body, reflecting ventilation efficiency.

  5. Trend Monitoring during Anesthesia: In surgical and anesthesia settings, ETCO2 monitoring, including the use of nasal cannulas, allows healthcare providers to track changes in ETCO2 levels over time. This helps in adjusting ventilation parameters and maintaining the patient’s physiological stability during procedures.

  6. Capnography in Procedural Sedation: During procedural sedation or conscious sedation, ETCO2 monitoring provides continuous feedback on the patient’s respiratory status. It helps prevent hypoventilation and ensures adequate ventilation during the procedure.

  7. Monitoring Patients with Respiratory Conditions: Patients with chronic respiratory conditions, such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) or asthma, can benefit from ETCO2 monitoring. It allows healthcare providers to assess the impact of treatments, evaluate respiratory function, and detect signs of respiratory distress.

  8. Pediatric Monitoring: ETCO2 monitoring with nasal cannulas is particularly useful in pediatric patients. It provides a non-invasive method for continuously assessing respiratory status without the need for intubation.

  9. Use in Emergency and Critical Care: In emergency and critical care settings, ETCO2 monitoring with nasal cannulas helps in the rapid assessment of patients with acute respiratory distress or failure. It assists in decision-making regarding ventilatory support and interventions.

  10. Prevention of Hypoventilation: ETCO2 monitoring aids in the prevention of hypoventilation, a condition characterized by insufficient removal of carbon dioxide from the body. This is crucial in preventing respiratory acidosis and maintaining acid-base balance.

  11. Early Recognition of Airway Obstruction: ETCO2 monitoring can detect signs of airway obstruction, such as an increase in ETCO2 levels, helping healthcare providers intervene promptly and prevent complications.

  12. Enhanced Patient Safety: Continuous monitoring of ETCO2 levels contributes to enhanced patient safety by providing insights into respiratory function. It enables proactive management of respiratory issues, reducing the risk of adverse events.

It’s important to note that the benefits of ETCO2 monitoring, including the use of nasal cannulas, are context-dependent and may vary based on the clinical setting and the patient population. The integration of ETCO2 monitoring into patient care protocols enhances respiratory assessment and supports optimal management in diverse healthcare scenarios.
