Masimo Corporation Given Approval to Market the Masimo Rad-57 Pulse CO-Oximeter in Japan
Date:11/27/2007

Masimo receives approval from Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare (MHLW) for the revolutionary medical device that noninvasively measures carbon

monoxide levels in the blood

IRVINE, Calif., Nov. 27 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Masimo, the inventor of Pulse CO-Oximetry and Read-Through Motion and Low Perfusion pulse oximetry, today announced approval of the Masimo Rad-57 Pulse CO-Oximeter, bringing the world's first and only technology capable of noninvasively measuring carbon monoxide (CO) levels in the blood to the Japanese market -- with 9,026 hospitals and Fire and Disaster Management Agency facilities(1) and a population of more than 127 million.(2)

The Masimo Rad-57 is a fast, accurate and noninvasive way to detect elevated levels of CO in the blood, without having to draw blood and wait for costly lab results. When a clinician places the Masimo Rad-57's sensor on a patient's finger and presses a button, the device will detect the percentage of CO in the bloodstream in just seconds, allowing for prompt and possibly life-saving treatment. In addition, the Masimo Rad-57 measures SpO2 (oxygen saturation), pulse rate and perfusion index (PI) with Masimo SET technology.

Each year in Japan, it is estimated that about 2,000 people die from CO poisoning.(3) An odorless and colorless toxic gas, poisoning from CO is notoriously difficult to diagnose because its symptoms mirror those of lesser afflictions, like the flu or food poisoning. Because of this, even the most skilled clinicians miss the chance to treat carbon monoxide poisoning early. As a result, unrecognized CO-poisoned patients are often unknowingly returned to the site of the exposure where they develop more serious levels of toxicity. Just one serious exposure to CO, as well as prolonged exposure to low levels of CO, can cause death or permanent brain, heart, or organ damage.(4,5) Certain home CO detectors don't alarm when low levels of CO are present.
