RRa Acoustic Respiration Rate Parameter
Email to a Friend
Acoustic Respiration Rate (RRa™ ) is a breakthrough measurement that allows clinicians to noninvasively and continuously assess patients’ breathing—facilitating earlier detection of respiratory compromise and patient distress.
HOW IT WORKS
Rainbow Acoustic Monitoring™ noninvasively and continuously measures respiration rate using an innovative adhesive sensor with an integrated acoustic transducer that is easily and comfortably applied to the patient's neck.
Using acoustic signal processing that leverages Masimo's patented revolutionary Signal Extraction Technology (SET®), the respiratory signal is separated and processed to display continuous respiration rate.
Respiration rate is a critical vital sign that provides early detection of respiratory compromise and patient distress
> Continuous monitoring of respiration rate is especially important for post-surgical patients receiving patient-controlled analgesia (PCA) for pain management as the sedation can induce respiratory depression and place patients at considerable risk of serious injury or death.1-4
> Although the Anesthesia Patient Safety Foundation (APSF) guidelines include oxygenation and ventilation monitoring in all patients receiving opioids,5 current methods for respiration rate monitoring can be limited by reliability or patient tolerance.6
Upgradable rainbow SET® Technology Platform rainbow SET® is a noninvasive monitoring platform featuring Masimo SET® Measure-through Motion and Low Perfusion™ pulse oximetry with the option to measure multiple additional blood constituents and physiologic parameters.
