The Capnograph monitor measures the concentration of C02 in the breathing gas based on the NDIR technology. Different gases absorb infrared light of a specific wavelength.
The stationary infrared light source emits a beam of invisible infrared light through the airway adapter, and the respiratory airflow flows in the airway adapter. As the beam passes through the airway adapter, some light is absorbed by the gas mixture.
The absorbed beam reaches the infrared detector fixed at the other end. The infrared detector is equipped with two filters of different wavelengths, one of which has very strong absorption of carbon dioxide, and the other wavelength of carbon dioxide has no absorption.
The infrared detector converts the beam into an electrical signal, which is converted to a digital value and sent to the microprocessor. The microprocessor then calculates the carbon dioxide concentration in the breathing gss mixture using the ratio of the light of the two measurement channels.
