Carescape R860 Neonatal/Infant Ventilator


CARESCAPE™ R860 features expert user tools, an innovative user interface, and is inherently familiar the first time you use it. For neonates up to adults.

Featuring expert user tools and an innovative user interface, the CARESCAPE R860 is inherently familiar the first time you use it. 

Navigating past, present and future states of your ventilated patients is the foundation of the CARESCAPE R860 user interface. From the center workspace view that highlights current patient status, you can swipe left to right to navigate from historical trends on the left (past) to Clinical Decision Support tools on the right (future). Your settings are recalled even as you navigate across workspaces. 

By replacing menus with workspace views, the CARESCAPE R860 has flattened the learning curve and unlocked ventilation capabilities by making them more accessible and easier to use.

Menu-free navigation

The user interface on the CARESCAPE R860 represents a leap forward in our touchscreen technology. Intuitively organized and easily accessible, relevant clinical content and therapy controls are not buried in menus, they are at your fingertips.

Keep your focus where needed

Interactive touchscreen slider controls of the master timeline in trend views reveal event-centric historical data that lets you take a snapshot into the past. This allows for a deep dive to compare settings, measured values and alarms within a specific period of time. We've also made alarm management easier to manage by centralizing alarm functions and making patient alarm history easy to find with a single touch.

Tailored care

Through useful data to support clinical decisions and convenient workspaces that can be customized for each patient, you can confidently provide tailored therapy with a touch of brilliance.

  • FRC/EELV static Compliance
  • P-V Loops
  • PEEP Titration and Vd/Vtt
  • FRC Inview
  • Spirodynamics and transpulmonal pressure
  • PEEP Inview and ventilatory calculations


Neonatal ventilation/options

The ventilation requirements for neonates are very different from the needs of adults. That’s why it’s important to have a Neonatal option designed to meet the specific physiological needs of the neonate.

With the CARESCAPE R860, validated to treat these vulnerable patients, special color-coding distinguishes this NICU option from other ventilators in your fleet. And specialized ventilation modes are included that help transition neonatal patients off of mechanical ventilation. Modes like Volume Support help support spontaneous breathing. The mode nCPAP,  with the option of setting Rate and Pressure, can help support the baby non-invasively and prevent intubation. Split screen view supports four Spirometry views, as well as the ability to select up to four waveforms and seven measured views.

By precisely tailoring ventilation to serve the sensitive needs of neonates, you can expand your diagnostic therapy capability.

Customizable settings and predictive protocols help clinicians assess and address appropriate respiratory therapy. Using the advanced tools in the CARESCAPE R860, you can tailor care to meet the patient’s requirements.

Measuring Functional Residual Capacity (FRC): 

A vigilant focus on lung protection. The Lung Protection tools in the CARESCAPE R860 calculate FRC, providing you with data for determining the optimal PEEP setting for the patient. 

Nutritional Assessment:  

The CARESCAPE R860 offers advanced tools for Indirect Calorimetry measurements that are measured, not estimated. The Metabolics feature in the CARESCAPE R860 has the potential to support improved patient outcomes, reduce infection rates and shorten the length of stay in the ICU.† The GE gas module measures inhaled and exhaled gases which the physician can use to assess a patient’s nutritional status. 

Weaning Support: 

Prolonged ventilation is associated with a host of complications that can have significant health and cost implications.†† Spontaneous Breathing Trial (SBT) is a mode of ventilation on the CARESCAPE R860 that allows clinicians to administer trials in a consistent manner while providing continuous trending and documentation of results to assess progress during trials. By easily navigating to see your patient's history, you know when they’re ready to breathe on their own.
