Respiratory Rate Accuracy - Healthy Adults

The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government. Read our disclaimer for details. Identifier: NCT03223870
Recruitment Status : Completed
First Posted : July 21, 2017
Last Update Posted : August 2, 2017
Information provided by (Responsible Party):
Nonin Medical, Inc

Brief Summary:
The objective of this study is to evaluate the Fingertip Respiratory Rate algorithm performance of the Nonin Medical X-100SP pulse oximetry systems with the 8300AA sensors and Onyx 3 fingertip oximeter. There is no treatment or interventions being performed.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment
Normal Respiration Patterns Diagnostic Test: Diagnostic

Detailed Description:
  1. Start data collection system(s) and allow them to run 15 minutes prior to study start of each subject.
  2. Confirm that the subject meets inclusion/exclusion criteria and has signed the current IRB- approved Informed Consent Form
  3. Collect Demographic and Anthropometric Data from the subject.
  4. Place Pulse Oximetry Sensors
  5. Place nasal cannula for capnography recordings
  6. A summary of Respiratory rate protocol.

    1. Stage 1: Subject will rest quietly and breathe at a normal comfortable rate for 40 minutes. The start and stop times will be marked on the data collection system.
    2. Stage 2: Immediately after Stage 1 is complete, the subject will start the 25 minute paced breathing protocol which will ramp from 5-45 BPM. A computer program will be used to guide the subject through the stage 2 paced breathing. The start and stop times will be marked on the data collection system.

  • The subject is between 18 years and 50 years of age (self-reported)
  • The subject has given written informed consent to participate in the study
  • The subject is both willing and able to comply with study procedures.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • The subject has a BMI greater than 30 (based on weight and height)
  • The subject has a history of atrial fibrillation (self-reported)
  • The subject has a documented history of frequent premature ventricular contractions (PVCs), defined as >3 per 30 seconds (self-reported)
  • The subject has an implanted pacemaker (self-reported)
  • The subject has had any relevant injury at the sensor location site (self-reported)
  • The subject has deformities or abnormalities that may prevent proper application of the device under test (based on examination)
  • The subject has a known respiratory condition (self-reported)
  • The subject has a known heart or cardiovascular condition (self-reported)
  • The subject is currently pregnant (self-reported)
  • The subject is actively trying to get pregnant (self-reported)
  • The subject is unwilling or unable to provide written informed consent to participate in the study
  • The subject has another health condition which in the opinion of the principal investigator makes him/her unsuitable for testing.
