Intuitive Multiparameter Patient Monitoring

Patient safety made simple

97%1 of postoperative opioid-induced respiratory depression is likely preventable with better continuous monitoring and response.

Staffing shortages can make it challenging to check on your patients as often as you’d like.

But what if you could monitor patients from anywhere in the hospital? Now you can, with RespArray™, your multiparameter patient monitor.

It’s designed for areas of care where spot checking might not be enough, like in medical-surgical units, or where additional parameters are needed, such as capnography in procedural sedation. Helping you detect respiratory compromise early and intervene sooner. 2,3,4

Benefits of Resparray™, the multiparameter patient monitor

Remote patient monitoring


On average, medical-surgical registered nurses spend 96% of their shift away from the patient's bedside.5


The RespArray™ patient monitor features simple connectivity and seamlessly integrates into workflow. So you’ll have more time to focus on your patients


  • Connection to EMR and VitalSync™ remote patient monitoring system
  • Includes SpO2 (Nellcor™ pulse oximetry) and etCO2 (Microstream™ capnography) proprietary algorithms, plus ECG, NiBP, and continuous temperature monitoring.
  • HL7 interface
  • Large, intuitive touchscreen visible from multiple angles and distances

Manage risks - and alarms 

Alarm solution

The Smart Alarm for Respiratory Analysis™ (SARA) in Microstream™ technology reduces unneccessary nuisance alarms by 55%.6

Experience world-class Nellcor™ pulse oximetry and Microstream™ capnography technologies, designed to help you detect respiratory compromise early7,8 — and help reduce insignificant alarms9.

Resparray™ patient monitor

Meet the Resparray™ patient monitor designed to continuously monitor patients in areas where spot checking may not be enough - or capnography is needed.

The measurements provided through the RespArray™ patient monitor, including Nellcor™, Microstream™, and other vital signs, should not be used as the sole basis for diagnosis or therapy and are intended only as adjuncts to patient assessment.

  • † This assumes a 20% respiratory depression reduction and an annual general care floor volume of 2,447 patients receiving opioids per median-sized hospital. 90% of surgical patients and 45% of medical patients on U.S. general care floors receive opioids. Continuous pulse oximetry and capnography device pricing assumptions used list pricing for the following: a Capnostream™ 35 portable respiratory monitor prorated over 7 years; a Microstream™ capnography filter line, and a disposable Nellcor™ pulse oximetry sensor, resulting in $52.73 in device costs per continuously monitored patient stay on a medical surgical floor. For intermittent pulse oximetry monitoring, device pricing consisted of a multiparameter monitor prorated over 7 years and a reusable pulse oximetry sensor, resulting in $0.68 in device costs per patient stay. Additional information on pricing and assumptions are available in the study publication.
