Product Description

DRE offers the Respironics Novametrix Tidal Wave model 715Sp portable handheld pulse oximeter and CO2 monitor with SpO2.  The Tidal Waves are the only handheld, mainstream capnographs available today, and provide immediate feedback on the patient's airway condition and ventilatory status. Based on the same technology as Respironics Novametrix bedside capnographs.
