Apria Healthcare Chooses Masimo SET Pulse Oximetry for Use in the Company's Home Health Care Business
Date:8/22/2007

Ability of Masimo SET pulse oximetry technology to significantly reduce false alarms without missing true hypoxic events cited as the reason for

choosing Masimo over all other technologies

IRVINE, Calif., Aug. 22 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Masimo (Nasdaq: MASI), the inventor of Pulse CO-Oximetry and Read-Through Motion and Low Perfusion pulse oximetry, today announced a partnership with Apria Healthcare to provide pulse oximetry products and accessories for Apria's home health care business. Apria Healthcare is America's leading provider of integrated home health care products and services, offering a comprehensive range of home respiratory therapy, diabetic supplies, medications and equipment, home infusion therapy and home medical equipment services.

Apria conducted a competitive bid in which Masimo was selected due to the superior clinical performance of its proprietary Masimo SET pulse oximetry technology, which significantly enhances the ability of Apria's customers to detect hypoxic events in the home care setting. This will provide patients and caregivers with reliable warnings of these instances where blood oxygen levels begin to drop, which in turn will lead to expedient intervention and the delivery of the appropriate level of care.

Masimo SET has been clinically proven in more than 100 independent clinical and laboratory studies to provide the most trustworthy continuous noninvasive arterial blood oxygen saturation and pulse rate measurements even under the most difficult clinical conditions, including patient motion and low peripheral perfusion. These studies prove Masimo SET delivers improvements in outcomes, safety and efficiency by providing accurate measurement of arterial oxygen satuaration and pulse rate and significantly reducing false alarms while improving detection of true events.

Joe E. Kiani, Chairman & CEO of Masimo, stated, "We are happy that Apria has chosen Masimo SET technology to help kee
