The user guide, it says that
"It is strongly recommended that you run the gas pump intermittently, running for 8-10 hours then stop it for a while before running again"
Does this mean that if we use this module for days it will break down?
In real medical occasion, it is not necessary to use the ETCO2 module continuously for days in order to measure the ETCO2 unless you actually want to use it in other scenarios instead of patient CO2 measurement.
So, it will break down if you keep the module running for days. In order to increase the lifespan and reduce the noise, we changed to use the Thomas Pump which increases the life span and continuous running time, even that, it is still necessary to stop it for a while after keep running for 8-10 hours.
