IntelliVue G1 and G5 Anesthetic Gas Modules measure the five most commonly used anesthetic gases, as well as nitrous oxide (N2O) and carbon dioxide (CO2). Waveforms for gases are displayed on patient monitors (sold separately). Practical for lower-acuity settings, but available with advanced capabilities that make them practical for higher-acuity environments.
The IntelliVue G1 gas module measures the single agent selected manually by the clinician, whereas the IntelliVue G5 automatically identifies agents and features mixed-agent measurement capability. A fast oxygen (O2) measurement based on advanced paramagnetic technology is optional with the G1 and included standard with the G5.
