Nasal Alar Pulse Oximetry Sensor

Like other anesthesia pulse sensors, the Nasal Alar Pulse Oximetry Sensor from Bell Medical is designed for low profusion patients and multi-day stay ICU patients. The Nasal Alar Pulse Oximeter Probe is FDA approved for up to 28 days on a patient.

The Nasal Alar Pulse Oximeter Probe is lightweight and comfortable to wear. Patients LOVE IT!

Nasal Alar Pulse Oximetry Sensor works on the most challenging patients!

Reliable accuracy – unaffected by poor peripheral perfusion or low saturations with Nasal Alar Pulse Oximetry Sensor

This oxygen and pulse sensor fits comfortably on the fleshy part of the side of the nose. The site is fed by both the external and internal carotid arteries; the latter also provides blood to the brain. The rich vascular supply to this region provides a strong, reliable signal, even when it is difficult or impossible to get a signal at the fingertips.

Monitoring Site results in faster detection of oxygen saturation changes with Nasal Alar Pulse Oximetry Sensor

Because the Nasal Alar Pulse Oximeter Probe measures the oxygen saturation from a vessel also supplying blood to the brain, changes have been proven to be detected up to 30 seconds faster than with a finger sensor.

Improved patient comfort with Nasal Alar Pulse Oximetry Sensor

The hands-free Alar oxygen and pulse sensor does not impede normal patient functions such as eating, drinking, or talking. It is less bothersome to the patient and is not likely to become disconnected.

Cost effective and convenient with Nasal Alar Pulse Oximetry Sensor

The single-patient-use Alar Sensor does not use adhesives at the sensor site. The sensor can be removed and reapplied for up to 7 days saving hospitals up to $232 for the ICU patient. Proven accuracy reduces false alarms improving patient safety, patient satisfaction and nurse productivity.

Amsorb Plus CO2 Absorbent

Amsorb Plus CO2 Absorbent improves patient safety by eliminating potential toxins plus it provides permanent color change so you always know the status of your absorbent. Your health organization is currently using GE Medisorb which is a traditional sodalime that can produce toxins when desiccated or fully spent. Since your facility does not change your absorbent until you have a reading of over 5 mmHg inspired CO2 the risk of exposure to toxins such as Compound A, Carbon Monoxide and Formaldehyde is increased. With Amsorb Plus you can continue to push your absorbent to complete exhaustion with no worry of toxins. Because Amsorb Plus CO2 Absorbent produces no toxins ever, your clinicians may also deliver lower flows while administering Sevoflurane and thus save the hospital system thousands. Amsorb Plus CO2 Absorbent is part of many health systems “green initiative” because Amsorb Plus has a lower pH than sodalimes such as GE Medisorb when spent. Amsorb Plus is NOT a sodalime. Amsorb Plus CO2 Absorbent is safe for the environment and safe for landfills. GE Medisorb and sodalime are often required to be “red bagged” for incineration at great expense due to spent sodalime’s high pH (see attached Kaiser Permanente disposal document).

Amsorb Plus CO2 Absorbent

Amsorb Plus offers numerous benefits at no additional cost for the actual absorbent. We offer Amsorb Plus CO2 Absorbent under our price matching program that guarantees savings since you save on anesthetic agent and on product disposal.
