CARESCAPE Respiratory Modules

Monitoring respiratory and ventilator parameters for adult, paediatric and neonatal patients in anaesthesia and critical care applications


This family of compact respiratory modules is designed to support respiratory monitoring in anaesthesia and critical care areas. Depending on the module type, host device software version and the clinical application, they provide measurements of airway gases, anaesthetic agents with agent identification, Patient Spirometry and Gas Exchange.




  • Airway gases measured by the Sidestream method
  • Eight module versions available to meet the needs of various care areas
  • All parameter values sampled proximal at the patient’s airway with a single gas sampling  line, D-lite(+)* or Pedilite(+) flow sensor, along with an additional Spirometry tube
  • Et and Fi values updated breath by breath
  • Fast oxygen measurement for accurate EtO2 and FiO2 values
  • Automatic identification of anaesthetic agents
  • Detects end inspiratory and end expiratory occlusions automatically and displays values for Statis Plat, Static PEEPi+e and Static Compliance
  • Calculated balance gas value for estimating the N2-concentration
  • Very compact size, low weight and low power consumption


Clinical measurements:


  • CO2 and N2O – GE infrared technology: Inspired and end-tidal values, CO2 waveform and respiration rate
  • Respiration rate – calculated from the CO2 waveform Anaesthetic agents – GE infrared technology
    • Measures and identifies all five agents and two agent mixtures: halothane, enflurane, isoflurane, sevoflurane and desflurane
    • MAC (Minimum Alveolar Concentration)
    • MACage with age, temperature and ambient pressure compensation
  • Patient Spirometry – Designed to measure true patient values independent of the ventilator with GE-patented D-lite(+) and Pedi-lite(+) flow sensors and gas samplers at the patient airway-Numerical values for airway pressure, minute and tidal volumes, compliance, airway resistance and I:E ratio values, and flow and airway pressure waveforms
    • Continuous measurement of intrinsic, extrinsic and total PEEP
    • Pressure-volume and flow-volume loops
    • Ability to store and print up to six loops
    • Recall saved loops to compare to current loop
    • Module keys to save or change loop view
  • Gas exchange – Non-invasive and continuous measurement
  • Oxygen consumption (VO2) and carbon dioxide production (VCO2)
  • Values for energy expenditure (EE) and respiratory quotient (RQ)
