The New Masimo Patient SafetyNet and the Innovative, Upgradable Masimo Rainbow SET Technology Platform Will Help Clinicians Meet Standards Bodies'
Calls to Improve Patient Safety
IRVINE, Calif., Oct. 4 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Masimo (Nasdaq: MASI), the inventor of Pulse CO-Oximetry and Read-Through Motion and Low Perfusion pulse oximetry, today announced it will launch Masimo Patient SafetyNet, a new remote monitoring and clinician notification system, and showcase its upgradable Masimo Rainbow SET technology platform at the 2007 American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA) Annual Meeting in San Francisco, California on October 13, 2007.
Masimo Patient SafetyNet is an easy-to-use system that combines the "gold standard" performance of Masimo SET pulse oximetry with wireless clinician notification via pager to provide a new level of safety to patients on general care floors, where nurse-to-patient ratios preclude the level of direct surveillance required and recommended to preempt sentinel events. Numerous standards bodies, including the Joint Commission (JCAHO), the American Society of Anesthesiologists, the Anesthesia Patient Safety Foundation and the Institute for Healthcare Improvement are calling for improved patient safety standards on general care floors.
Masimo Patient SafetyNet is specifically designed to keep at-risk
patients safe on general care floors by connecting them to qualified
caregivers quickly, easily, and accurately. When a Patient
SafetyNet-monitored patient is in respiratory distress, meaningful and
actionable alarms are generated by the Masimo bedside monitor and sent
wirelessly to designated clinicians for review and response. As a result,
