Capnostream™ 20p Bedside Monitor with Apnea-Sat Alert Algorithm

The Capnostream™ 20p patient monitor with Microstream™ technology provides a complete measurement of a patient’s oxygenation and ventilation status.


The Capnostream™ 20p patient monitor is built on a legacy of proven performance. For nearly two decades, clinicians have relied on Microstream™ technology for an accurate, continuous view of ventilation adequacy on intubated and non-intubated patients, from neonate to adult. The new Capnostream™ 20p monitor, with the Apnea-Sat Alert feature, alerts caregivers to repetitive patterns of apneas and oxygen desaturation, revealing a more complete picture of a patient’s respiratory status.

Dual Parameter Monitor

Supports current standards of care by providing etCO2 and SpO2 measurements.

Smart Alarm Management™ Integrated Algorithms1,2

The Capnostream™ 20p patient monitor with Microstream™ includes Smart Alarm Management™ Integrated Algorithms, a suite of algorithms proven to reduce alarms and simplify the use of patient monitoring to enhance patient safety and improve clinical efficiency.

Smart Breath Detection™

Screens out low amplitude ‘non-breath’ etCO2 excursions like, talking, crying or snoring.

Smart Alarm for Respiratory Analysis™ (SARA)

Reduces clinically insignificant alarms.*

Nellcor™ SatSeconds

Alerts clinicians to clinically significant changes in pulse oximetry.

Integrated Pulmonary Index™ Algorithm (IPI)

IPI algorithm presents one value that demonstrates real-time respiratory status based on etCO2, RR, PR and SpO2.

Apnea-Sat Alert™ Algorithm (ASA )§

Tracks and reports apneas per hour and oxygen desaturation index, and provides the data in trend reports.


Compatible with central monitoring systems and interfaces with nurse call systems and electronic medical records.

Internal Printer

Provides convenient bedside documentation.





SARA evaluates the stability of the detected breath-to-breath intervals and adjusts (adapts) the measurement period accordingly, thus averaging out noise and transient fluctuations when required, providing a more realistic respiratory rate.

SpO2 data from host required.

Apnea-Sat Alert is FDA cleared for adults 22 years of age or older.
