Mainstream vs. Sidestream

What are the advantages of EMMA vs. traditional Sidestream
monitoring?

EMMA is a CE marked Emergency Capnometer for rapid application, proof-of-intubation and short term CO2 monitoring of adults, pediatrics and infants in emergency transport, emergency care and intensive care. It measures end-tidal CO2 and respiratory rate. EMMA provides unsurpassed mobility compared to traditional Sidestream monitoring due to its compact size, lack of cables, tubing, connectors or filters. EMMA is self contained and can be directly connected to an endotracheal tube, laryngeal mask or facial mask via the Disposable Airway adapter which prevents cross infection ensuring utmost patient to patient hygiene. Sidestream monitoring requires tubing, connectors and filters lengthening the patient application time, introducing unnecessary delays in an emergency situation. Compared to Sidestream monitoring EMMA has no warm up time and has full accuracy as soon as switched on and EMMA displays ETCO2 values after only one breath and is updated every breath. Respiratory rate will be displayed after two breaths and updated every breath. Both ETCO2 and respiratory rate are visualized on LED numeric displays. A large, easy to read, 14 segment bar graph gives immediate visual feedback for ETCO2 concentrations, breathing activity or alarm situations. EMMA is available with a comprehensive alarm system with both visual and audible alarms for apnea, adapter clogging and high and low end-tidal values. Compared to Sidestream EMMA has a rugged, shock-proof and water resistant design (IEC60529:1989 Class IP33) provides the user with absolute portability coupled with reliable monitoring for any emergency situation. EMMA has also been designed in accordance with EN 1789:2007 standard for Road Ambulances. Unlike sidestream EMMA does not require regular calibration which lowers the cost of ownership EMMA Key Features
