The proprietary D-fend, D-fend Pro and Mini D-fend water traps protect the gas module from contamination, humidity and secretions.
The gases are sampled from the patient, passed through the water trap, into the module for analysis. The water trap inhibits bacteria, viruses, water and mucus from entering the monitor.
There are application-specific versions for both Anesthesia and Critical Care environments. Correct handling of water traps is crucial in protecting the sensors inside the module and providing seamless accurate gas monitoring.
