Vital Signs' Swedish subsidiary, Vital Signs Sweden, has acquired fellow Swedish company Futall, which holds the intellectual property rights underlying its C-CO2 indicator, for approximately $2m. The acquisition will enable Vital Signs Sweden to manufacture products similar to C-CO2 for other companies on an OEM basis. The C-CO2 is designed to guard against the accidental insertion of a tracheal tube into the oesophagus by detecting the presence of carbon dioxide in exhaled gas.
