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.
†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.
