Baby sleep breathing monitor CMS50EW-WRP monitors the vital signs - pulse rate and blood oxygen level (SpO2), of your baby while he/she is sleeping. This unit sounds an alarm if a reading falls outside a pre-defined range. If the SpO2 suddenly drops, it is an indication of breathing problems; if the heart rate drops or increases suddenly, it can be a sign of arrhythmia. The data can be recorded and analyzed for hypoxia and bradycardia. These episodes are early warnings for future problems.
Even though SIDS cannot be predicted and its causes are unknown, there are several high risk groups of babies identified. If your baby is in the high risk category or you want to have a peace of mind, using CMS50EW-WRP is a good way to ensure that your baby is fine.
The sleep breathing monitor CMS50EW-WRP is a pulse oximeter that measures the baby's pulse rate and blood oxygen level directly. This is its key advantage over other baby monitors that rely on movement detection. For more information, see the article on Infant Sleep Breathing Monitor.
The following diagrams show how to attach the probe to the baby.
The baby sleep monitor is used when the baby is sleeping. If the baby is moving around, the oximeter probe may fall off. On the other hand, if the baby is active, normally there is no need to monitor continuously.
The Newborn Foundation is the only organization of its kind dedicated to leveraging technology innovation to save newborn lives and improve health outcomes for the newest, most vulnerable citizens. This organization is a strong advocated for this type of inexpensive portable technology that helps save hundreds of thousands of newborns. To learn more about this foundation and the importance of screening for oxygen saturation and pulse oximetry watch the video below.
WARNING: This is not a toy and the monitoring must be performed under constant adult supervision. It is important that the infant must not be allowed to tangle up with the cable. This is especially true when the infant is capable of pulling things and can move his/her body around. Attach the probe to the bay’s feet; run the cable towards the end of the bed away from his/her body; secure the cable so that he cannot grab the cable or tangle himself. See our CMS50EW Reference page for more details.
Sleep monitor CMS50EW-WRP has an integrated sensor and a wrap oximeter probe. The integrated sensor is for spot checking and the wrap oximeter probe is for continuous or overnight monitoring. Besides infants, the wrap oximeter probe can be used by children or adults also. CMS50EW-WRP is a premium pulse oximeter loaded with features and is highly reliable and accurate.
Your Windows computer can retrieve and save data from CMS50EW-WRP for further analysis. Data can be transferred to the computer in real time mode or saved in the the baby sleep monitor for later archive. When using an external probe, data must be saved before it can be transferred to the computer.
There are two ways to connect the baby sleep monitor to a computer via USB cable and Bluetooth. For Bluetooth connectivity, turn on Bluetooth on your computer and CMS50EW-WRP, start the CMS50EW-WRP software (SpO2 Assistant), and you will see your pulse and blood oxygen saturation level display on your computer monitor. If your computer does not have built-in Bluetooth capability, you would need to get an inexpensive Bluetooth dongle for your computer. This is an ideal way of capturing data for detection of hypoxic episodes and irregular heart rate.
You can monitor your baby from a computer monitor or from the device's display. When using a probe, the data will be stored inside CMS50EW-WRP and can be uploaded later. When using the integrated sensor, the data can be transmitted to the computer in real time.
The multicolor display of CMS50EW-WRP is clear and attractive and is one of the best on the market. CMS50EW-WRP has 4 display modes so the readings can be viewed from all directions. This makes the reading ease for the caretaker or the patient. The audible alarm can be configured and switched on/off as desired depending on the environment. CMS50EW-WRP has an internal memory capable of storing 24-hour worth of data, which can be saved to a PC via a USB cable or Bluetooth adapter. Software is also included for reporting, data analysis and archive.
The pulse oximeter CMS50EW-WRP comes with a rechargeable lithium ion battery that will last for up to 24 hours. The battery can be recharged via the USB port. You can use any USB power source (e.g. computer) or the included AC adapter.
If you want to show the data to the baby's doctor, the computer can print a report showing a summary and detail data. Many doctors find the data helpful to diagnose the situation. No additional equipment is required.
