The Kangaroo™ CO2 detector is an effective assessment tool that confirms correct NG and OG placement and helps avoid inadvertent tracheal placement - safely, reliably and immediately. Only the Kangaroo™ CO2 detector incorporates a unique colorimetric paper technology engineered to display an easy-to-detect change in color from purple to yellow within seconds when the presence of carbon dioxide is detected.
- Colorimetric paper detects presence of CO2; Built-in-fail-safe method. If yellow when open, discard; Easy to detect color change; Reduce number of x-rays involved in procedure; Eliminates unnecessary waiting.
- Universal adapter provides ability to use on all feeding/NG tubes.
- Bellows device is an easy one handed attachment and activation to aid in drawing and evacuating air from the device; Airflow clears mucus or obstructions from distal tip; Prevents exhaled CO2 from entering tube prematurely.
- Small and compact — does not alter clinician’s insertion technique; easy to use.
