This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

Optical Sensors has received US FDA 510(k) clearance to market its CapnoProbe sensor for the measurement of sublingual (under the tongue) tissue CO2. The disposable probe is inserted into the patient's mouth and acquires a reading within a minute. Sublingual CO2 measurements can help determine tissue hypoperfusion, or lack of oxygen to the tissue, which can be an indicator of conditions such as shock, said the Minneapolis, Minnesota company.
