cap-ONE is Nihon Kohden's unique mainstream CO2 sensor for both intubated and non-intubated patients for safer respiratory management.
Monitor Your Patient with Reliable cap-ONE Mainstream CO2 Sensor
cap-ONE is Nihon Kohden's unique mainstream CO2 sensor for both intubated and non-intubated patients for safer respiratory management. The ultra compact and light weight sensor and unique adapter provide accurate measurements and reduce the burden on the patients.
We have two measuring methods: the Quantitative method and Semi-quantitative method.

With a ventilator and a nebulizer
Because the mist generated in the breathing circuit by a nebulizer creates a very harsh environment for CO2 sensor which uses infrared light, it was considered impossible to monitor a CO2 by a capnometer when a nebulizer is used with a ventilator. However, we have overcome these issues and developed a TG-980P CO2 sensor that enables stable measurement over a long period of time, even when using a nebulizer.
Capnogram obtained by TG-980P, our CO2 sensor while using nebulizer
The upper waveforms are the CO2 partial pressure in exhaled air, and the lower waveform shows the signal light and reference light detected by our CO2 sensor, TG-980P. The exhaled CO2 partial pressure is calculated from the signal and reference light outputs.
When the nebulizer is turned on, the waveforms of both the signal and reference light outputs are blurred due to the mist of the nebulizer. However, with TG-980P which is using Quantitative method, the CO2 measurement is not affected since both are equally affected so an accurate partial pressure of CO2 can be determined.
For non-intubated patients –cap-ONE mask and Nasal/Oral adapters
Using TG-980P CO2 sensor together with cap-ONE mask, the sensor can accurately catch oral and nasal exhaled CO2 and reliably detect respiratory variation. In addition, cap-ONE mask is easily used for pediatric patients who are receiving supplemental oxygen. With the unique design, the sensor catches the exhaled gas from the nose and mouth without interference of oxygen supply.
Efficient oxygen supply while measuring ETCO2
cap-ONE and NPPV mask optimizes the ability to monitor and detect changes in the patient’s condition, improving patient care and out comes.
- Continuous CO2 monitoring during NPPV therapy is available
- Designed to fit any facial shape with minimal patient discomfort and skin damage
- Adjustable forehead cushion support arm
Increase Patient Comfort
Formfitting NPPV mask
The Nihon Kohden NPPV mask is designed to fit any facial shape with minimal patient discomfort and skin damage.
Continuous CO2 monitoring during NPPV therapy
The combination of cap-ONE, Nihon Kohden's new class of ultra-compact CO2 sensor, and unique NPPV mask optimizes the ability to monitor and detect changes in the patient's condition, improving patient care and outcomes. This is particularly useful for measuring CO2 during NPPV therapy.
- Intended to sample CO2 and administer supplemental oxygen at the same time
- Can be used for adult to pediatric patient
- For single-patient use only
- For early detection of respiratory depression
- Stable oxygen supply
- Continuous monitoring of ETCO2 afterendoscopy
