Nellcor™ Technology Monitors Respiration, Oxygen Saturation and Pulse From Single Finger Sensor
June 9, 2014  | 

Dublin, IECovidien plc announced the European commercial launch of its Nellcor™ Respiration Rate System. In addition to the Adult Respiratory Sensor, the system includes the Nellcor™ Respiration Rate Version 2.0 software and Nellcor™ Bedside Respiratory Patient Monitoring System, PM1000N, both of which recently received CE Mark approval.

With this addition to the Nellcor™ Respiratory Function portfolio – a single-sensor, pleth-based respiration rate monitoring technology – clinicians now can monitor a patient’s SpO2, pulse rate and respiration rate through a single integrated finger sensor.

The Nellcor™ Respiration Rate System provides critical information through a continuous, non-invasive patient monitoring platform that enables clinicians to review respiratory trend data over the course of a patient’s treatment. The system is accurate – reporting respiration rates of ± 1 breath per minute when compared to respiration rate derived from a capnography-based reference – easy to use, and may enable earlier intervention in the case of respiratory compromise.

“The methods we currently have available to monitor respiration rate are not always accurate, despite the fact that it is a critical vital sign,” said Dr. Graham Douglas, Respiratory Unit, Aberdeen Royal Infirmary. “The Respiration Rate system from Covidien gives us a better picture of a patient’s overall respiratory status, does not change the workflow of our clinical staff and allows us to better provide effective treatment through a finger sensor that is familiar to clinicians and comfortable for patients.” Continue>
