Medical applications of Cambustion products

Our instruments for measuring gases and particles are used in medical research.

For example, inhaled nitric oxide (iNO) has emerged as one of the most commonly used gas therapies in the medical field. Recent advancements in technology have made it possible to administer both low and high doses of therapeutic nitric oxide to hospitalized patients who are spontaneously breathing, as well as ambulatory patients. However, in order to ensure safety and effectiveness, it is crucial to accurately detect the concentrations of nitric oxide and nitrogen dioxide. 

The accurate detection of nitric oxide and nitrogen dioxide concentrations plays a vital role in maintaining the well-being of patients undergoing nitric oxide therapy. Nitric oxide is a potent vasodilator that helps relax and widen blood vessels, thereby improving oxygenation and reducing pulmonary hypertension. On the other hand, nitrogen dioxide is a toxic byproduct that can cause harm if its levels are not carefully monitored and controlled.

With recent technological advancements, sophisticated monitoring systems have been developed to measure the concentrations of nitric oxide and nitrogen dioxide during therapy. These systems utilize sensors and analyzers capable of precise and real-time measurements. By continuously monitoring the gas levels, healthcare professionals can promptly adjust the dosage and ensure that patients receive the appropriate amount of nitric oxide without exposing them to excessive nitrogen dioxide.

Cambustion Ltd is a pioneering company at the forefront of providing cutting-edge solutions to the medical field. Leveraging their expertise in combustion analysis, they have developed a state-of-the-art, highly reliable, and fast nitric oxide (NO) and nitrogen dioxide (NO2) analyzer that is revolutionizing the way these compounds are measured in medical applications.

Maintaining safety is paramount when administering nitric oxide therapy. Excessive levels of nitrogen dioxide can lead to respiratory distress and lung damage. Therefore, accurate detection and monitoring of nitric oxide and nitrogen dioxide concentrations allow healthcare providers to intervene quickly in case of any irregularities or potential risks. This ensures that patients receive the intended therapeutic benefits while minimizing the possibility of adverse effects.

Furthermore, achieving efficacy in nitric oxide therapy relies on accurate monitoring of gas concentrations. By precisely measuring the levels of nitric oxide, healthcare professionals can tailor the dosage to individual patients' needs, optimizing the therapeutic outcomes. Whether it is delivering low doses to patients with chronic respiratory conditions or administering high doses for acute respiratory distress syndrome, accurate detection enables healthcare providers to make informed decisions and fine-tune the therapy for maximum effectiveness.

In conclusion, recent technological advancements have expanded the possibilities of nitric oxide therapy by allowing the administration of low and high doses to both hospitalized and ambulatory patients. To ensure safety and efficacy, it is crucial to accurately detect and monitor the concentrations of nitric oxide and nitrogen dioxide. With sophisticated monitoring systems, healthcare professionals can maintain patient safety, promptly respond to any irregularities, and optimize the therapeutic outcomes of nitric oxide therapy.

Cambustion technologies also allow real-time measurement of carbon dixode, carbon monoxide, water vapour and nanoparticles.
