Customizable settings and predictive protocols help clinicians assess and address appropriate respiratory therapy. Using the advanced tools in the CARESCAPE R860, you can tailor care to meet the patient's requirements.
Measuring Functional Residual Capacity (FRC):
A vigilant focus on lung protection. The Lung Protection tools in the CARESCAPE R860 calculate FRC, providing you with data for determining the optimal PEEP setting for the patient.
The CARESCAPE R860 offers advanced tools for Indirect Calorimetry measurements that are measured, not estimated. The Metabolics feature in the CARESCAPE R860 has the potential to support improved patient outcomes, reduce infection rates and shorten the length of stay in the ICU.† The GE gas module measures inhaled and exhaled gases which the physician can use to assess a patient's nutritional status.
Prolonged ventilation is associated with a host of complications that can have significant health and cost implications.†† Spontaneous Breathing Trial (SBT) is a mode of ventilation on the CARESCAPE R860 that allows clinicians to administer trials in a consistent manner while providing continuous trending and documentation of results to assess progress during trials. By easily navigating to see your patient's history, you know when they're ready to breathe on their own

Lung Protection Strategy
Lung Protection strategy: an integrated approach
The lung is a delicate structure that is highly sensitive. Mechanical ventilation can be detrimental if too much volume or pressure is delivered. And patients affected by lung disease are highly susceptible to ventilation-associated lung injury.1
A Lung Protection strategy can help ensure that different zones receive the treatment they need
CARESCAPE* R860 offers an integrated solution
The CARESCAPE R860 was designed with a simple and universal navigation scheme. The Lung Protection tools calculate FRC, providing the clinician with data for determining the optimal PEEP setting for the patient.

The ventilation requirements for neonates are very different from the needs of adults. That’s why it’s important to have a Neonatal option designed to meet the specific physiological needs of the neonate.
With the CARESCAPE R860, validated to treat these vulnerable patients, special color-coding distinguishes this NICU option from other ventilators in your fleet. And specialized ventilation modes are included that help transition neonatal patients off of mechanical ventilation. Modes like Volume Support help support spontaneous breathing. The mode nCPAP, with the option of setting Rate and Pressure, can help support the baby non-invasively and prevent intubation. Split screen view supports four Spirometry views, as well as the ability to select up to four waveforms and seven measured views.
By precisely tailoring ventilation to serve the sensitive needs of neonates, you can expand your diagnostic therapy capability.
