International Association of Fire Fighters (IAFF) Advocates Screening Fire Fighters for Carbon Monoxide Poisoning Using Pulse CO-Oximetry
Date:1/8/2008

Canada.

The National Association of EMS Educators (NAEMSE) issued similar guidance to its membership recommending that EMS professionals "screen patients for carbon monoxide poisoning that have had a suspected exposure, or present with any of the signs or symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning." These two organizations are examples of a growing trend with industry-leading emergency services associations converging toward a new standard of care for the proactive screening of CO-exposed patients and emergency services personnel by Pulse CO-Oximetry.

Joe E. Kiani, Chairman and CEO of Masimo, stated, "Firefighters and EMS personnel are among our greatest heroes. They fight tirelessly to save our lives, homes, property and land from the ravages of fire -- often sacrificing their own lives and health in the process. The Masimo Rad-57 Pulse CO-Oximeter was designed with saving lives and preserving health in mind. We applaud IAFF for taking this proactive step to ensure the health and well-being of the heroes who care for us all."

About Masimo

Masimo (Nasdaq: MASI) develops innovative monitoring technologies that significantly improve patient care -- helping solve "unsolvable" problems. In 1995, the company debuted Read-Through Motion and Low Perfusion pulse oximetry, known as Masimo SET, and with it virtually eliminated false alarms and increased pulse oximetry's ability to detect life-threatening events. More than 100 independent and objective studies have confirmed that Masimo SET technology allows clinicians to accurately monitor blood oxygen saturation in critical care situations. Our Masimo SET platform has significantly addressed many of the previous technology limitations, has substantially contributed to improved pati
