Criticare Poet IQ 8500H Features

The Criticare Poet IQ 8500H agent gas analyzer measures real-time concentrations of anesthetic agent gases. The device measures gases using a sidestream method. The primary module measures concentrations of CO2, N2O, and halogenated anesthetic agents. The Criticare Poet IQ 8500H can also measure oxygen concentrations using a galvanic cell. The gas sample enters the monitor from a sampling tube into a water trap, which removes water vapor and particulate matter from the gas sample.

  • Integrated CO2/agent detector.
  • Measures carbon dioxide, nitrous oxide, and five halogenated anesthetic agents.
  • Uses proprietary High IQ technology to identify and quantify agent gases.
  • No moving parts.
  • Reduced size.
  • Reliable.
