Physiologic Monitor Modules, Inspired Oxygen
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 purpose of intermittently or continuously monitoring the fraction of inspired oxygen. These modules contain electronic circuits or other technology designed to acquire and/or process the signal from one or more physiologic sensors (e.g., a galvanic cell whose voltage changes with the oxygen concentration a polarographic cell whose current changes with the oxygen concentration) and transmit it to the physiologic monitor, which contains the software designed to support the module's intended function(s). Inspired oxygen monitor 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 an inspired oxygen monitor module, when used with a physiologic monitor, include display of waveform(s) and numeric/trends for oxygen concentration, and appropriate initiation of visual/audible alarms.
