Tidal Wave Sp - The complete hand-held CO2 Monitor, now with pulse osimetry and sidestream sampling capabilities!

capnograph.gif - 22634 BytesAlong with the original Tidal Wave, they are the only handheld, mainstream capnographs available today. It provides immediate feedback on the patient's airway condition and ventilatory status. Based on the same technology as bedside capnographs, we miniaturized the size, not the performance. Tidal Wave Sp is ideal for use in emergency and transport settings.
