In a typical example, a patient monitor manufacturer desires to add CO2
monitoring to a family of products. After researching the capnography
market, the manufacturer decides that a sidestream CO2 system is necessary
so that non-intubated as well as intubated patients can be served by the
The manufacturer finds our website and decides to purchase the CO2
Evaluation Kit and a CO2 Sensor Simulator. The PC software is loaded, and
the engineers begin to evaluate the functionality of the CO2 Module.
Below is a screen capture of the demonstration software.
After observing the basic functionality of the CO2 Module, the engineers
begin to plan the integration of the Module into the final product. The
engineers use the Communication Protocol included with the Kit to send
commands and observe responses from the Module. The CO2 Sensor Simulator
assisted the evaluation effort by providing a way to generate various
patient waveforms, breath rates and error conditions.
The manufacturer decides to proceed with the product development, and
places an order for more CO2 Modules to build prototypes and clinical test
units. The following checklist is faxed back to TreyMed Inc. to customize the
Modules for the desired implementation.

In addition to the choices on the Configuration Checklist, many other
custom options are available:
a variety of vacuum pumps (low-cost,
long-life, very long-life, from various suppliers)
low-cost CO2 Module (no calibration valve
or flowrate control)
male or female interface connectors
CO2 Scrubber for clean air offset
5-micron filters for intake ports
disk filter receptacle with patented
TreyMed looks forward to working with you on your next Capnography
