Smart Capnography™ is a family of algorithms engineered to reduce alarms and provide clinical utility for improved patient safety.
Available to OEM partners on the Microstream™ MicroMediCO2™ OEM module and with the Microstream™ MicroPod™ OEM module, Microstream™ Smart Capnography™ algorithms provide vital alarm management and clinical decision-support features that enhance the value of Microstream capnography in OEM host monitors and systems.
The Integrated Pulmonary Index™ (IPI) algorithm incorporates etCO2, respiratory rate, SpO2 and pulse rate into a single number that represents an inclusive respiratory profile. This algorithm has been clinically validated against patient status assessments of a group of medical professionals.
The results of the IPI™ model showed strong correlation in multiple clinical studies, and have led to these conclusions:

In clinical studies, the Smart Alarm for Respiratory Analysis™ (SARA) algorithm was shown to recognize and reduce clinically insignificant respiratory alarms, while accurately reflecting the patient’s condition and preserving clinically significant alarm vigilance.
