A leading cause in preventable adverse outcomes in sedated patient cases is failure to use or correctly interpret capnography in detecting respiratory depression.[1] Not every EtCO2 monitoring cannula consistently provides both accurate EtCO2 monitoring and the necessary supplemental O2 delivery. In fact, in a clinical study, the Salter Divided Sampling Cannula was the only nasal sampling cannula to demonstrate statistically significant superiority for both EtCO2 measurement and oxygen delivery.[2]

Insist on Proven Performance

Salter Labs Divided Nasal SampleCannula

Divided cannulas provide accurate undiluted CO2 readings within 2-4 mm Hg of arterial CO2. 2,3 The divided face piece design of the Salter Divided Nasal Sampling Cannulas separates O2 delivery from CO2 monitoring, allowing flexibility to vary O2 rates without affecting CO2 readings.2 The divided nasal sampling cannulas enable true EtCO2 sampling and effective O2 delivery without limitations at higher lpm rates.1,[3]

Safety and Comfort

The divided nasal cannulas from Salter Labs feature Salter Eyes – an innovative, patented design created by anesthetists for anesthetists. The Eyes provide safety apertures in each prong to reduce the possibility of occlusions.[1] Divided sampling cannulas also feature a soft headset tubing for more patient comfort.
