A powerful combination – proprietary CSI vital signs and 5-agent gas analysis technology. Versatile, reliable, and incredibly compact. Designed to operate simply, in less time, and with greater accuracy!

CSI’s new Poet IQ® Gas Monitor, together with the Poet Plus® 8100 Vital Signs Monitor, provides a unique combination of leading edge vital signs technology and anesthesia gas monitoring in a compact, modular system. The Poet IQ automatically identifies and quantifies inspired and expired CO2, N2O, O2, and five anesthetic agents. The system’s reliable performance, ease of use, flexible design, and affordable cost make it the ideal monitoring solution for anesthesia applications in hospitals and surgical centers.

Features and Benefits
  • State-of-the-art NDIR technology identifies and measures five anesthetic agent gases: Halothane, Isoflurane, Enflurane, Sevoflurane, and Desflurane.
  • Automatic or manual.
  • Breath-by-breath O2, CO2, and N2O monitoring.
  • Gas flow sampled at 100, 150 and 200 ml/min.
  • Mixed agent identification.
  • Measurement accuracy is not affected by alcohol or ketones.
  • Fast warm-up time ensures full accuracy within minutes.
  • No user calibration required; minimal user interaction.
  • Intuitive, easily configured user interface minimizes training and is ideal for multiple users.
  • Bright, real-time display of numerical values and waveforms provides instant notification of changing patient status.
  • Lightweight, portable design provides flexible workspace options.
