carbon dioxide detector endotracheal tube

US4691701A - Carbon dioxide detector - Google Patents

A carbon dioxide detector for determining the correct location of an endotracheal tube following intubation of a patient. The detector includes a housing with a first tubular member for connection to a endotracheal tube or the like, a second tubular member for connection to an anaesthetic circuit and an indicator to indicate the presence of carbon dioxide in the detector.

End-tidal CO2 measurement in the detection of esophageal ...

Measurement of end-tidal carbon dioxide (ETCO2) has been used to detect accidental esophageal tube placement in noncardiac arrest situations. The purpose of our study was to determine whether ETCO2 measurement could distinguish tracheal from esophageal tube placement during closed-chest massage (CCM). Twelve large dogs were anesthetized, and endotracheal tubes were placed in both …

The Inability to Detect Expired Carbon Dioxide After ...

Expired carbon dioxide may not be detected after successful intubation as a result of cardiac arrest or pulmonary embolus because carbon dioxide delivery to the lungs is reduced or absent. Severe bronchospasm and endotracheal tube obstruction with mucus , blood , or foreign matter are other reasons not to detect expired carbon dioxide.
