Masimo Announces Continuous Noninvasive Total Hemoglobin
Date:2/25/2008

Masimo to debut this latest Rainbow SET(R) parameter at the upcoming World

Congress of Anesthesiologists Meeting

IRVINE, Calif., Feb. 25 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Masimo, the inventor of Pulse CO-Oximetry(TM) and Measure-Through Motion and Low Perfusion pulse oximetry, announced that it will debut its breakthrough technology for noninvasive and continuous total hemoglobin (SpHb(TM)) and oxygen content (SpOC(TM)) monitoring at the World Congress of Anesthesiology (WCA) in Cape Town, South Africa, on March 3, 2008.

The advent of noninvasive total hemoglobin within the Masimo Rainbow SET platform will make hemoglobin testing more convenient and broadly available to medical personnel in both the acute and outpatient settings-the measurement is instantaneous and pain-free. Over 350 million hemoglobin tests are done in the US alone each year. Prior to Masimo Rainbow SET, invasive and time-consuming lab tests were the only methods available to determine total hemoglobin levels which provided delayed and intermittent data.

Masimo expects to make SpHb and SpOC shipments to select customers for clinical use in the second half of 2008, pending regulatory clearances. There is a 510(k) pending for SpHb and SpOC in the US.

Martin Allard, M.B.Ch.B, FRC, Professor and Director of Research, Department of Anesthesiology, Loma Linda University, stated, "From its application as a noninvasive tool for universal hemoglobin screening at routine health check-ups to the management of blood loss and blood replacement in patients experiencing acute blood loss, or those undergoing surgery -- these new measurements could prove to be indispensable in a wide variety of healthcare settings."

"Noninvasive, continuous total hemoglobin and oxygen content monitoring should allow for more timely interventions both inside and outside of the operating room and should enable emergency medical professionals, dialysis centers, family physicians, ca
