National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) Sets New National Standard for CO Screening by Pulse CO-Oximetry(TM)
Date:2/19/2008

2008 NFPA 1584 establishes the routine use of Pulse CO-Oximetry as a way to protect the lives of the nation's firefighters from the dangers of CO

Poisoning

IRVINE, Calif., Feb. 19 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Masimo (Nasdaq: MASI), the inventor of Pulse CO-Oximetry and Measure-Through Motion and Low Perfusion pulse oximetry, announced today that the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) has included Carbon Monoxide (CO) screening by Pulse CO-Oximetry as part of a new national healthcare standard for firefighters potentially exposed to Carbon Monoxide poisoning. NFPA's consensus codes and standards serve as the worldwide authoritative source on fire prevention and public safety -- virtually every building, process, service, design, and installation in society today is affected by NFPA documents.

The new standard, which became effective December 31, 2007 and was recently published, establishes that "any firefighter exposed to CO or presenting with headache, nausea, shortness of breath, or gastrointestinal symptoms," should be measured for CO poisoning by Pulse CO-Oximetry or other approved methods. It also requires every fire department to establish Standard Operating Guidelines (SOGs) that outline uniform rehabilitation procedures for firefighters at incident scenes and training exercises.

Too often, even the most skilled first responders miss the chance to treat carbon monoxide poisoning early because, until Masimo invented Masimo Rainbow SET Pulse CO-Oximetry in 2005, there wasn't a noninvasive way to detect elevated levels of CO in the blood. With the Masimo Rad-57 Pulse CO-Oximeter, fire fighters, EMS professionals and ER clinicians can easily detect carbon monoxide poisoning by applying a noninvasive LED-based sensor on the victims or themselves, allowing for prompt and possibly life-saving treatment that can also limit the likelihood of long-tern cardiac and neurological damage.
