Transcutaneous Monitoring
for Anesthesiologists

Anesthesiologists manage treatment of clinical patients in almost every department of the hospital. The Sentec Digital Monitoring System provides accurate CO2 and SpO2 values for continuous ventilation and oxygenation assessment, extending the standard of care to patients without airway or arterial line access.

Continuous, accurate, noninvasive CO2 monitoring that accommodates patients and providers in the perioperative environment.

General Anesthesia 

tcPCO2 may help guide ventilation for patients who require high frequency jet or oscillatory ventilation, one-lung ventilation, or who have prolonged apneic phases.

MAC/Sedation

Deeper sedation comes with an increased risk of respiratory compromise, making ventilatory monitoring a critical aspect in assuring quality care.

Consistent Accuracy

tcPCO2 provides better estimates of PaCO2 values than etCO2 during thoracic anesthesia, one-lung ventilation, and procedures for severely obese adults with V/Q mismatch.

Post-OP

tcPCO2 allows for monitoring respiratory depression in patients on PCA pumps and with high risk factors like COPD.

TCM IN ANESTHESIOLOGY

Continuous, accurate, noninvasive CO2 monitoring for surgical, sedated, and recovering patients.

Sentec technology provides accurate, continuous CO2, SpO2, and pulse rate information regardless of ventilation method to support the assessment of hypoventilation in sedated and/or post-operative patients. A variety of anatomical monitoring sites help maintain a clear surgical field.

Benefits for Patients

Continuous CO2 and SpO2 monitoring provides continuous ventilation information during and after procedures – enabling clinicians to catch complications and fill in the gaps between patient assessments.

With no mask or cannula tcPCO2 provides a higher comfort level for spontaneously breathing patients compared to etCO2.

Benefits for Providers

Better correlation to PaCO2 than end-tidal for MAC deep sedation, and high accuracy regardless of ventilation modality, respiratory rate, or lung compromise.

Multiple monitoring site options support visibility into patient ventilation and oxygenation status AND the surgical field.

Benefits for Providers

Transcutaneous monitoring can reveal hypercapnia even in the presence of normal respiratory rates and SpO2 values, common during augmented surgical states.

Monitored data can be transferred to patient monitoring systems and electronic medical record systems (EMR).
