Bridging the gap with non-invasive and continuous parameters
Based on an easy-to-use dual finger sensor, the CNAP® technology provides a full set of non-invasively measured, continuous patient signals and hemodynamic parameters:
Continuous and non-invasively measured data in real-time without any risk and burden to patients.
Due to the quick and easy set-up of the unique CNAP® finger sensor, measurements are up and running in 1.5 minutes.
Reliable & Proven
More than 5,500 customers worldwide and leading global partners trust in our 20 years of experience.

Continuous Blood Pressure
Continuous blood pressure measurement allows for the detection of rapid blood pressure changes often unidentified, missed or only belatedly recognized with intermittent NBP upper arm measurement.
One or more hypotensive episodes were detected during complex gastrointestinal endoscopy in 29% of the patients by using CNAP® technology. (1)
“Continuous non-invasive arterial pressure measurement facilitates detecting hemodynamic instability more rapidly and therefore may improve patient safety” (1)

Non-invasive Cardiac Output & advanced hemodynamics
The non-invasive CNAP® finger sensor allows for accurate(1) and immediate feedback on hemodynamic and cardiovascular status in perioperative settings to support therapeutic decision making, and also to quantify hemodynamic response during orthostatic and autonomic function tests (tilt table, active standing, Valsalva, etc.)(2) or to track cardiovascular response to autonomic function test and stimuli (3).

Non-invasive Pulse Pressure Variation and Stroke Volume Variation parameters
PPV and SVV are dynamic fluid parameters enabling individualized intra-operative fluid management, supporting healthcare professionals in educated therapy decisions(1,2) over the course of Enhanced Surgical Recovery (ESR) and Goal Directed Therapy (GDT) guidelines to minimize postoperative complications(3,4).
