Carescape special parameter modules

Various specialty parameter modules have been designed for use with our Carescape monitoring system. The fully modular system allows to compose your set of parameters for each setting, for each care area, for each patient.


Relaxation module E-NMT 

The NeuroMuscular-Transmission Module provides integrated measurement of the level of neuromuscular block. It also offers plexus stimulation for Regional Block. The stimulation modes are TOF, ST, DBS and Tetanic.

The module contains two measurement sensor options: the easy-to-apply MechanoSensor for routine clinical use on adult and pediatric patients and ElectroSensor (EMG). The Recall function allows the module to be moved with the patient without losing the reference values and the measured supramaximal current. In addition, the recovery note function can be set to help notify when the block is wearing off.


BIS Measurement module E-BIS

The BIS Module uses the BIS expanded performance, XP, technology from Aspect Medical Systems, Inc. to measure the effects of anesthetics and sedatives on the brain. BIS (Bispectral Index) has proven to improve the quality of anesthesia management by providing the clinician a means to assess the patient´s level of consciousness.

Adding the BIS information on Carescape Monitor multiparameter screen offers the possibility to use it in combination with other parameters such as hemodynamics and NMT and Surgical Pleth Index to obtain a more complete picture on adequacy of anesthesia.

Entropy module E-Entropy

The Entropy Module is an innovative monitoring modality which is designed to provide information on the state of the central nervous system during general anesthesia. Entropy monitoring is based on acquisition and processing of raw EEG and FEMG signals by using the Entropy algorithm, a Datex-Ohmeda application of spectral entropy. 

The spectral entropies, State Entropy (SE) and Response Entropy (RE), are processed EEG and FEMG variables which have been shown to correlate with the amount of certain anesthetic agents administered to the patient. Entropy may be used as an aid in adjusting the anesthesia according to individual needs.


EEG Module

The EEG Module is a single-width plug-in module for continuous EEG monitoring. The module is designed for anesthesia and critical care applications. The EEG Module provides measurement of 4 channels of EEG, spectral analysis by Fast Fourier Transform and Compressed Spectral Array (CSA) display. In addition, Auditory Evoked Potentials (AEP) measurement is included.


Pressure/Temperature module 

In addition to the  to hemodynamic combination module with two temperature measurements and up to 4 invasive pressure , the Pressure Module E-P is a single-width plug-in parameter module including one invasive blood pressure (P3 resp. P5). The Pressure Temp Module E-PT is a single-width plug-in parameter module including two additional temperature measurements (T3, T4), one invasive blood pressure channel (P3), ECG and invasive blood pressure signal output (Signal Out) for external devices.  The Dual Pressure Module E-PP is a single-width plug-in parameter module including two invasive blood pressure channels (P5, P6 ).


Cardiac Output and SvO2 module

The Cardiac Output Module E-COP provides thermodilution cardiac output, right ventricular ejection fraction (REF) and one invasive blood pressure measurement. The Cardiac Output and SvO2 Module E-COPSv provides thermodilution cardiac output, right ventricular ejection fraction (REF), mixed venous saturation SvO2 and one invasive blood pressure measurement.

The modules have direct keys to start Cardiac Output (CO) measurement and zero invasive pressure channel. The modules provide a CO display view with single and automatic set CO measurement modes as well as a hemodynamic and oxygenation.


PiCCO/CO  modul

Cardiac output is a vital parameter when assessing cardiac function and when making therapy decisions for critically ill patients. C.O. is also routinely measured during and aftermajor surgical procedures.In addition to continuous cardiac output, PiCCO technology enables other parameters for a comprehensive evaluation of the hemodynamic status of the patient. Using the PiCCO technology is well suited in situations where thehemodynamics are unstable and/or when mechanical major surgical procedures. In addition to continuous cardiac output,
