±0.2 kPa / ±2 mmHg, +8% of reading3
525 – 795 mmHg (700 – 1060 hPA)
(EtCO2/CO2 reading reaches its steady state accuracy within 10 minutes after power up. From maximum storage temperature, monitor reaches steady state accuracy 19 minutes after power up.)
Calculated Update Frequency: Once every breath (“NO BREATH” alarm after 30 seconds)
Sampling Rate: 4 Hz (4 times per second)
Total System Response Time: <7 seconds (includes delay time and rise time)
Drift of Measurement: Within CO2 accuracy specifications for 6 hours of continuous monitoring
Measurement: Automatic barometric pressure compensation and CO2 temperature compensation
1 There is no known adverse effect on performance due to cyclical pressure up to 10 kPa.
2 There is no degradation in EtCO2 measurement accuracy as a function of BrPM and inspiratory/expiratory (I/E) time ratio.
3 Presented concentration of CO2 and EtCO2 can be false, indicating a high presence of nitrous oxide and other interfering gases.
The table below shows the CO2 and EtCO2 concentration corrections. Only use agents listed in the table below.
|Agent Concentration||Correction of Presented CO2 to Real Concentration|
|50 – 70% N2O||Presented CO2 x 0.75 = Actual CO2|
|30 – 50% N2O||Presented CO2 x 0.85 = Actual CO2|
|0 – 30% N2O||No correction|

RespSense® II Troubleshooting
A. Prior to turning on the monitor:
- Insert the filter into the trap.
- Insert the trap and filter into the monitor – insert the top of the trap first, then snap in bottom. (Look for the numbers 1 and 2 embossed on the monitor in the area where the trap inserts.)
B. Turn on the monitor.
- Disable audible alarms by pressing the ‘NO ALARM’ icon on the start-up screen.
- After starting the monitor and pump is running (about 15 seconds), you will see ‘WARM UP’ then ‘NO BREATH’ displayed.
C. Verify that trap and filter are seated properly
- Hold your finger over the trap inlet where the cannula connects. After a few seconds, the pump will slow and you will get an ‘OCCLUSION’ display.
- Release your finger and the monitor is ready. This indicates that the trap and filter are positioned correctly. (Skip to Section II.)
- If, after 5-10 seconds, ‘NO BREATH’ is still displayed, the filter is not seated properly. After re-seating the trap and filter, repeat Step 1 above. If again this does NOT show an ‘OCCLUSION’ alarm, then there may be trouble with the unit. (Proceed to Section D below.)
D. Checking the monitor
- With the unit running remove the trap and filter and place your finger over the small hole in the recessed area of the monitor. The monitor’s pump will stop running.
- Restart the pump by pressing the red ALARM/RESET button with your finger still over the hole.
- If the pump restarts and displays OCCLUSION followed by ‘TRAP FULL/PUSH ALARM’ the monitor is working properly. Change filters and try to insert the trap and filter again. If the pump restarts and runs without ‘TRAP FULL/PUSH ALARM’ displayed, then the monitor is not functioning properly. Contact Nonin Technical Service.
II. DURING OPERATION
A. Occlusion indication during operation
- If the monitor occludes, ‘TRAP FULL/PUSH ALARM’ will be displayed.
- Reset the monitor up to two (2) times by pressing the ALARM/RESET button.
- If the monitor occludes again, the pump will run for several seconds then shut off and display ‘OCCLUSION’ followed by ‘TRAP FULL/PUSH ALARM’.
- To determine if the occlusion is in the cannula or the filter/trap combination, disconnect the cannula from the trap (Luer connector) and press the ALARM/RESET button. .
If the monitor restarts and runs properly for 10-15 seconds, then the occlusion is in the cannula and the cannula should be replaced. If the unit occludes and shows the ‘TRAP FULL/PUSH ALARM’ the occlusion is in the filter. Replace the filter and restart the monitor by pressing the ALARM/RESET button.
