ClearMate™ - Point-of-care Carbon Monoxide (CO) Poisoning Treatment
Compact and portable, ClearMate™ has been developed by leading scientists in the field of blood gases.
The Science behind the ClearMate™
ClearMate™ works through the administration of isocapnic hyperpnea.
The Mechanism of Action:
- A constant CO2 supply stimulates an increase in breathing (hyperventilation) which strips the CO from the hemoglobin and washes it out of the lungs.
- A high O2 concentration in inspired gas forces CO off the hemoglobin.
- PaCO2 is maintained and CO2 keeps the blood vessels open, increasing circulation.
This is why the ClearMate™ works. It allows the patient to hyperventilate, washing out CO, while maintaining CO2 levels.
