Clinical Measurements & Modules

Modules for the B40 Patient Monitor

The B40 Patient Monitor’s semi-modular platform allows you to customize the monitor with multiparameter combinations and a space for a single-width module.

B40 Patient Monitor Counter Top Mount

Hemodynamic module 

  • 3- or 5-lead ECG 
  • Impedance respiration 
  • SpO2 
  • Noninvasive blood pressure
  • 2-channel temperature 
  • Optional 2-channel InvBP

Key clinical measurement technologies: 

  • EK-Pro arrhythmia analysis 
  • ST analysis 
  • DINAMAP* SuperSTAT NIBP 
  • TruSignal* SpO2 technology (Masimo and Nellcor options also available.)

Neurology E-Entropy Module: Contains GE’s unique Entropy* algorithm that monitors the state of the brain in adults and children over age two. The Entropy measurement may: 

  • Aid in monitoring the effects of certain anesthetic agents 
  • Help the user titrate anesthetic drugs according to the patient’s needs 
  • Assist in the reduction of anesthetic use and help facilitate a quick emergence from anesthesia

Respiratory: Modules assist in essential anesthesia gas monitoring. Features include: 

  • Real-time breath-by-breath inspiratory and expiratory values measured right at the patient’s airway: CO2, O2, Fi-EtO2 difference, N2
  • Fast oxygen measurement for accurate EtO2 and FiO2 values 
  • Airway gases measured by the sidestream method, enabling monitoring of intubated and nonintubated patients 
  • Automatic identification of the single agent in use, alert of agent mixture detection 
  • MAC (Minimum Alveolar Concentration) and MACage with age, temperature and ambient pressure compensation: E-sCAiO 
  • Sidestream CO2: E-miniC 
  • Sidestream CO2, O2 and N2O: E-sCO
  • Sidestream CO2, O2 agents and N2O: E-sCAiO, N-CAiO
