  • Clinical Measurements & Modules

    Modules for the B40 Patient Monitor

    The B40 Patient Monitor’s semi-modular platform allows you to customize the monitor with multiparameter combinations and a space for a single-width module.

    Hemodynamic module 

    • 3- or 5-lead ECG 
    • Impedance respiration 
    • SpO2 
    • Noninvasive blood pressure
    • 2-channel temperature 
    • Optional 2-channel InvBP

    Key clinical measurement technologies: 

    • EK-Pro arrhythmia analysis 
    • ST analysis 
    • TruSignal* SpO2 technology (Masimo and Nellcor options also available.)

    Neurology E-Entropy Module: Contains GE’s unique Entropy* algorithm that monitors the state of the brain in adults and children over age two. The Entropy measurement may: 

    • Aid in monitoring the effects of certain anesthetic agents 
    • Help the user titrate anesthetic drugs according to the patient’s needs 
    • Assist in the reduction of anesthetic use and help facilitate a quick emergence from anesthesia

    Respiratory: Modules assist in essential anesthesia gas monitoring. Features include: 

    • Real-time breath-by-breath inspiratory and expiratory values measured right at the patient’s airway: CO2, O2, Fi-EtO2 difference, N2
    • Fast oxygen measurement for accurate EtO2 and FiO2 values 
    • Airway gases measured by the sidestream method, enabling monitoring of intubated and nonintubated patients 
    • Automatic identification of the single agent in use, alert of agent mixture detection 
    • MAC (Minimum Alveolar Concentration) and MACage with age, temperature and ambient pressure compensation: E-sCAiO 
    • Sidestream CO2: E-miniC 
    • Sidestream CO2, O2 and N2O: E-sCO
    • Sidestream CO2, O2 agents and N2O: E-sCAiO, N-CAiO
