Breath Sampling Technology
Oridion Microstream® etCO2 measurement technology is versatile for use in any hospital environment and for all patient types.
The FilterLine® family of etCO2 breath sampling lines includes unique elements for accurate sampling from oral or nasal breathers, in high humidity environments, and even with the smallest of breath samples from infants or neonates.

Oridion provides a total etCO2 sampling solution for many other types of sidestream (non-Microstream®) etCO2 monitors, so that clinicians using these monitors can also benefit from our sampling technology:
Features and Benefits
For all Microstream etCO2 breath sampling lines
- The 0.2 micron anti-bacterial filter helps prevent internal contamination of the etCO2 module and protects both the patient and device from cross-contamination
- Built-in water trap designed with a hydrophobic filter prevents moisture from entering the monitor, while maintaining laminar flow and excellent waveforms
- Moisture reduction technology combats humidity by allowing water vapor to escape
- An array of specialty sampling lines meets every clinical need, for all patient types:
- Longer-term monitoring
- High humidity environments
- Upper airway management during endoscopy procedures
etCO2 breath sampling lines for non-intubated patients
- Patented Uni-junction™ design assures effective oral and nasal sampling even at low tidal volumes
- Unique, patented O2 delivery system enables
- Minimum dilution of etCO2 waveform during O2 delivery
- Effective supplemental O2 delivery, which can reduce the drying effect on sensitive mucus membranes
etCO2 breath sampling lines for intubated patients
- Flexible airway adapters that can perform in any position
- Unique 2-port channel design prevents clogging from moisture or patient secretions
- Universal airway adapter for connections to 15 mm and 22 mm endotracheal or tracheostomy tubes, ventilator circuits, closed suction systems, and other devices for adult and pediatric patients
