Masimo also receives the AARC Zenith Award for Equipment and Service Excellence at the 54th Annual International Respiratory Congress in Anaheim

IRVINE, Calif., Dec. 16 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Masimo (Nasdaq: MASI), the inventor of Pulse CO-Oximetry and Measure-Through-Motion and Low-Perfusion pulse oximetry, announced that the clinical benefit of its remote monitoring and clinician notification system, Masimo Patient SafetyNet, was featured in a presentation titled Global Perspectives of Facility-Prolonged Mechanical Ventilation Care at the American Association of Respiratory Care (AARC) 54th Annual International Congress in Anaheim, California, on December 15, 2008.

Gene Gantt, RRT and Manager of Business Development for Linde Respiratory Support Services (RSS), a leader in post-acute respiratory care, presented how weaning patients off ventilator care in a post-acute care setting provides improved outcomes and reduced costs. According to Mr. Gantt, a major challenge to weaning patients off ventilator care in the post-acute environment was a safe and easy-to-use patient surveillance system that could help clinicians preempt adverse events. Mr. Gantt reported that the integration of the Masimo Patient SafetyNet system into Linde's Knoxville, TN facility protocol has been a significant factor in successfully implementing their weaning protocol and achieving a 75% wean rate with an average length-of-stay of only 40 days. The initiative has been so successful at improving the quality of life for patients and reducing the overall cost of care that Linde-RSS has decided to expand use of the Patient SafetyNet system to both their Memphis and Chattanooga facilities, as well.

"Using the Masimo Patient SafetyNet System not only raised the bar in terms of the quality of care that could be delivered in a p
