  Purpose

This investigation is a multi-center study that will demonstrate that the GE Monitor meets equivalency and/or accuracy and/or performance criteria. This investigation will compare the test device(s) to itself, or one of the reference parameters, or a combination of parameters, including NIBP, temperature, SpO2, respirations, and ECG.

Sampling Method:   Non-Probability Sample
Study Population

All populations (neonatal, pediatrics, and adults).

Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Signed informed consent from subject and/or guardian
  • Ability to maintain proper placement of cuff and/or probe and/or sensor
  • Presence of atrial fibrillation or other irregular heart rhythm (when applicable)
  • Ability to single or dual monitor NIBP, ECG, and/or SpO2, whether or not already being monitored for any or all of these parameters (SuperSTAT development study only)

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Any subject deemed too unstable, by clinician's discretion, or for another reason deemed unacceptable for study by the clinician
  • Known dysrhythmias (when applicable)
  • Known disease state or medical condition that A) compromises circulation to the extremity, B) compromises musculo-skeletal integrity, or C) otherwise contraindicates use of a NIBP cuff and/or SpO2 sensor on an extremity or ECG patches on skin
  • Vigorous exercise prior to participating in the study
  • Excessive movement or excitability causing false values or no determinations
  • Known allergy to latex when latex products will be in contact with subject
  • Subjects who have eaten, drank, smoked or chewed gum in the preceding half hour (temperature parameter only)
  • Nasal/septal defects, cold and/or allergies that would not allow the subject to breathe through their nose (temperature parameter only)
  • Subjects with whom flammable anesthetics will be used.
  • Adult/pediatric subjects,(greater than 1 year of age) who, at the clinician's discretion, could not tolerate approximately 12, but no more than 25 blood pressures on each extremity
  • Pediatric/neonatal subjects,(less than 1 year of age) who, at the clinician's discretion, could not tolerate approximately 10, but no more than 12 blood pressures on each extremity
  • Presence of pacemaker which makes the atrial fibrillation rhythm indistinguishable
  • Subject's limb circumference is outside of the manufacturer's recommended cuff range
  • Subject has Korotkoff sounds that persist to nearly zero (when applicable)
