  • Care Area Benefits

    For the OR and PACU

    • OR-dedicated software options to meet your specific monitoring needs
    • Anesthesia Carestation solution combines patient monitoring, anesthesia delivery, predictive drug modeling, perioperative imaging and EMR devices in a single, integrated system.
    • Innovative gas monitoring, including Patient Spirometry, to optimize ventilation and detect airway-related complications
    • In adults, Entropy monitoring may aid in monitoring the effects of certain anesthetic agents and may be associated with a reduction of anesthetic use and faster emergence from anesthesia.
    • Access to ECG database from pre-op to recovery, to assist in the early detection and treatment of potentially lethal cardiac problems, dysfunctions or disorders.
    • Unity Network™ ID, when combined with the CARESCAPE Monitor B450, allows you to connect to other vendors and selected devices, as well as send data to electronic medical records.
    • Quickly change alarm settings based on patient type through alarm management tools.
  • For the NICU:
    • Specific NICU software package includes Profiles and Pages, allowing you to reconfigure quickly for patient acuity, type of use or clinical status.
    • Event annotation allows you to differentiate events.
    • Alarm limits are customized for NICU use and can be silenced easily and routed to a network alarm for a more peaceful environment to meet your developmental care goals.
    • Alarm management tools like Automatic View on Alarm and network alarm management help to improve workflow when caring for babies.
    • DINAMAP™ Superstat NIBP algorithm is specially tuned for premature physical characteristics.
    • High-resolution CRG trends with 2-second viewing allow beat-to-beat evaluation of bradycardia and apnea events.
  • For Cardiac or Intensive Care

    • EK-Pro arrhythmia monitoring uses four simultaneous leads for analysis, including atrial fibrillation detection and trending, to enhance event detection and minimize false alarms.
    • Continuous ST-segment monitoring of up to 12 leads and ST trend views help enable you to detect changes almost instantly and follow-up on them immediately.
    • Continuous monitoring of QT/QTc prolongation helps you prevent life-threatening torsades de pointes events.
    • ACI-TIPI facilitates triage of chest pain patients, helping improve diagnostic accuracy and reducing time to treatment.
    • Optional ACS mode provides higher sensivity 12SL™ analysis for the detection of acute coronary syndromes in patients suspected of acute myocardial infarction or ischemia.
    • Up to 72-hour parameter trends allow you to analyze changes in the patient's status, as well as evaluate the treatment's effectiveness.
    • Diagnostic quality of 12SL analysis and automatic, initial interpretation, along with two-way integration to the MUSE™ cardiology information system, enable fast, validated access to a patient's 12SL history and serial comparison of cardiac status.
    • Through PiCCO technology, a less invasive hemodynamic monitoring capability that may help in managing fluid therapy, assessing volume status, assessing cardiac contractility and detecting pulmonary edema in pediatric and adult patients.


The CARESCAPE Monitor B450 can accommodate one multi-parameter module and one E-Module.

PODMulti-parameter modules:

  • CARESCAPE Patient Data Module: Facilitates patient mobility with uninterrupted flow of clinical intelligence before, during and after intra-hospital transport by collecting all patient data from the CARESCAPE modular monitor and refreshing the patient's record when reconnected to the network in the new location. Capable of 24-hour data storage with 36 arrhythmia events, 10 ST segments, 20 cardiac calculations and 10 pulomanary calculations. Exceptional parameter set includes 3-, 5-, and 6-leadwire ECG up to 8 measured ECG waveforms, EK-Pro four-lead arrhythmia analysis, optional 12RL* derived 12-lead ECG and 12SL* diagnostic 12-lead ECG, DINAMAP* SuperSTAT non-invasive blood pressure, and Masimo® SET® or Nellcor® OxiMax® SpO2.
  • CARESCAPE Monitor B450Patient Side Module: Enables simultaneous measurement of 3-, 5-, and 6-leadwire ECG up to 8 measured ECG waveforms, EK-Pro four-lead arrhythmia analysis with ST segment analysis, respiration, pulse oximetry, two temperatures, non-invasive blood pressure and optional two invasive blood pressures (in E-PSMP), optional 12RL* derived 12-lead ECG and 12SL* diagnostic 12-lead ECG in CARESCAPE* modular monitors.

Single-width slot for one of the following e-modules:
- Respiratory

  • CARESCAPE Respiratory Modules (E-sCO(V) and E-sCAiO(V)): Family of four airway modules designed to monitor respiratory and ventilator parameters in anesthesia and critical care applications. Depending on the module type, version and the clinical application, they provide measurements of airway gases, anesthetic agents with identification and Patient Spirometry. Acronyms:
