Physiologic Monitor Modules, Apnea/Respiratory Rate

Definition : Modules designed to be used as a component of a physiologic monitor, along with related devices, to acquire, measure, and process information for the purposes of continuously monitoring the respiratory rate and detecting the cessation of breathing (apnea). These modules contain electronic circuits or other technology designed to acquire and/or process a signal (e.g., changes in electric impedance of the thoracic cavity or other physical variations) from one or more physiologic sensors (e.g., electrodes, thermistors) and transmit it to the physiologic monitor, which contains the software designed to support the module's intended function(s). Respiratory rate/apnea modules must be inserted in a dedicated location (e.g., "slot") within a physiologic monitor (e.g., modular or modular/configured bedside or transport monitor) or related device (e.g., module rack) in order to support the desired function(s). Typical functions of a respiratory rate/apnea module, when used with a physiologic monitor, include continuous monitoring of respiratory rate, display of the respiratory waveform and numeric rate value, detection of apnea, and appropriate initiation of visual/audible alarms.
