Overview

Reliable, low acuity patient monitoring

The CARESCAPE V100 monitor is a reliable, easy-to-use vital signs monitor that helps you care for many patients efficiently. Its speed, accuracy and mobility allow you to collect the right information at the point of care, and present it wherever it is needed, so you can make fast, quality care decisions.

Durable and mobile

Not only can the CARESCAPE V100 monitor withstand the rigors of tough clinical use and cleaning, the battery has a long run time – typically eight to 11 hours before requiring recharge. And if the battery is discharged, it maintains the data, and you can plug it in and continue to use the monitor. This long battery life allows you to flexibly move the monitor from one patient room to the next for the course of a shift.

Clinical excellence inside

By combining fast determination times with an advanced algorithm, the CARESCAPE V100 monitor helps ensure patient comfort while maintaining a high standard of clinical accuracy. It also includes the same advanced parameters and algorithms as other higher acuity GE monitors, ensuring measurement consistency across all care areas.

Providing information where you need it when you need it

When combined with the Mobile Vitals Plus** application1, vital sign information is sent to the EMR in real time, right from the bedside, eliminating documentation and transcription errors and lag time. Not only does this allow you to spend more time with your patients, but it makes vital sign data accessible on the CARESCAPE CIC Pro central station, CARESCAPE iPanel, CARESCAPE Mobile Viewers or anywhere it is needed for making fast, efficient care decisions.

Intended use

The durable CARESCAPE V100 vital signs monitor is designed for low acuity clinical settings. It can also be used for continuous monitoring, providing you the flexibility of 2 devices in 1, a stationary device and one for rounds. It is designed for use on adult, pediatric and even neonatal patients who have very low perfusion pressures. 

Benefits

Accuracy

The CARESCAPE V100 provides precise, accurate readings using proven DINAMAP* technology. The GE DINAMAP SuperSTAT blood pressure algorithms support speed, comfort and artifact rejection for virtually all types of patients, including neonates with very low perfusion pressures, geriatrics and hyper/hypo tensive patients. When combined with the Mobile Vitals Plus application, vital signs are transmitted to the EMR in real time, eliminating any transcription errors.

Speed

With non-invasive blood pressure determination times as fast as 14 seconds, and the clinical accuracy of embedded DINAMAP technology, the CARESCAPE V100 monitor delivers exceptional speed and accuracy. The Exergen TemporalScanner* thermometer provides non-invasive, fast, easy and accurate temperatures. And when combined with the Mobile Vitals Plus application, vital signs are transmitted to the EMR in real time, eliminating any lag time.

Efficiency

The CARESCAPE V100 monitor is a two-in-one monitor — it can be used for both spot check and continuous monitoring, with continuous monitoring freeing up valuable nursing time. When combined with the Mobile Vitals Plus application, nurses spend less time in documentation and more time with their patients and families.

Infection Prevention

GE supports your infection prevention efforts. We offer the Exergen TemporalScanner thermometer, which does not come into contact with mucous membranes. In addition, the silver ion anti-microbial head has been found to reduce the population of Staph, Listeria and E-Coli. The monitor’s durable plastic coating is compatible with most stringent chemical hospital cleansers, and GE CRITIKON* blood pressure cuffs are disposable.

Mobility

Not only can it withstand the rigors of tough clinical use and cleaning, the CARESCAPE V100 monitor’s battery has a long run time – typically eight to 11 hours before requiring recharge. And if the battery is discharged, it maintains the data, and you can plug it in and continue to use the monitor. This extended battery life allows you to flexibly move the monitor from one patient room to the next for the course of a shift.

Consistent across all care areas

The CARESCAPE V100 includes the same advanced parameters and algorithms as other higher acuity GE monitors, so you can consistently measure across all care areas – from the ED to OR to ICU to PACU to Surgical. This gives you confidence that when a patient’s measurements deviate, the change is due to the patient’s condition - not a difference between monitors.

Information where you need it when you need it

With speed, accuracy and connectivity, the CARESCAPE V100 monitor, along with the Mobile Vitals Plus solution1, helps you manage Clinical Information Logistics* by collecting the right information at the point of care, and presenting it wherever it is needed. So you can make fast, quality care decisions informed by relevant, current clinical intelligence.

Technology

The CARESCAPE V100 monitor includes the same advanced parameters and algorithms as other higher acuity GE monitors, so you can consistently measure across all care areas:

  • GE DINAMAP* SuperSTAT*, Classic or Ausculatory blood pressure algorithms support speed, comfort and artifact rejection
  • Choose from three Sp02 measurements including GE Ohmeda*, Nellcor* or Masimo*
  • Three different temperature options to choose from: 1) Exergen TemporalScanner, a non-invasive, fast, easy and accurate thermometer, does not come into contact with mucous membranes, 2) Alaris Turbo Temp provides fast oral or rectal temperatures at the bedside, as well as axillary temperatures in monitor mode in as fast as 7 seconds. And 3) Alaris Tri-Site thermometer provides fast oral, rectal and axillary temperatures at the bedside. It provides predictive measurements with greater tolerance to probe placement in the vicinity of the sublingual pocket in as fast as 11 seconds.
