With the compact CARESCAPE™* CO2 – Microstream™ parameter engineered features of Microstream™ capnography can be integrated into existing CARESCAPE™* patient monitoring platform. The CARESCAPE™* CO2 – Microstream™ parameter device is validated for use in the CARESCAPE™* monitoring system both at the bedside and in intra-hospital transport — for seamless, uninterrupted workflow between care areas.
The CARESCAPE™* CO2 – Microstream™ parameter device is compatible with the following GE Healthcare products†:
Microstream™ capnography technology uses Molecular Correlation Spectroscopy™ a proprietary CO2-specific IR wavelength engineered to deliver clear, crisp waveforms and accurate measurements, with no impact from the presence of other gases (i.e., O2, N2O, He, or inhaled anaesthetics).With fast power-up and fully accurate measurements at first reading, Microstream™ technology offers:Low flow 50-mL/minute sample rate, effective for virtually all patient types and necessary for neonatal samplingNo individual patient calibration or rezeroing requiredProprietary Smart Capnography™ algorithms, Smart Breath Detection™ algorithm (SBD) and Smart Alarm for Respiratory Analysis™ algorithm (SARA), are designed to simplify the use of CO2 monitoring on Microstream™ technology-enabled patient monitors to help improve patient safety and clinical workflow.([FOOTNOTE=Internal test data on file. ],[ANCHOR=],[LINK=])
Design enhancements help improve the patient experience and the performance of the sampling line. Softer tubing may help increase patient compliance and safety, while the improved kink-resistance of the tubing maintains an uninterrupted oxygen supply to patients, and continuous CO2 sampling.([FOOTNOTE=Blonder Y, Mazor E, and Jew K.
