The Masimo Patient SafetyNet system instantly routes bedside-generated alarms through a server to a qualified clinician's hand-held paging device in real-time. For added safety, the system allows for automatic escalation of the alarm to additional clinicians when necessary. Each Masimo Patient SafetyNet system can support up to 40 bedside monitors and can either be integrated into a hospital's existing IT infrastructure or operate as a stand-alone wireless network.
The Accuracy of Masimo SET Pulse Oximetry Enables Monitoring on General Care Floors
At the heart of Masimo Patient SafetyNet is Masimo SET pulse oximetry, clinically proven in more than 100 independent and objective studies to provide the most trustworthy SpO2 and pulse rate measurements, even under the most difficult clinical conditions of patient motion and low peripheral perfusion. Previous attempts at developing general care floor monitoring systems were unsuccessful because the high volume of false pulse oximetry alarms generated by conventional pulse oximetry led systems to provide false alarms so often that clinicians ultimately ignored all alarms. Masimo SET reduced false alarms by over 90% and improved detection of true alarms to over 97%, delivering accurate and reliable alarms and alerts that can be trusted to reflect a patient's true oxygenation status. This accuracy and reliability enables clinicians on general care floors to maximize their efficiency and increase patient safety by responding with confidence to alarms knowing they represent real clinical events, without being burdened by false alarms.
