The Calmed CT1400 CO2 insufflator is intended for use in examination of the bowel by CT colonography. Its operation is fully automatic throughout the scan. The desired pressure is pre-set using touch keys, then checked and controlled throughout the procedure with two independent sensors.
A unique single-use tube set carries the gas from the insufflator to the patient. It is fitted with a special balloon catheter, which is suitable for all patients. The tube set is also available for insufflations from other manufacturers.
