Do Pulse CO-Oximeter Measures of SpMet and SpO2 Correlate with Blood Gas CO-Oximetry in Neonates?(2), a clinical study led by Dr. Mitchell R. Goldstein at Loma Linda Children's Hospital in Loma Linda, California, evaluated whether methemoglobin saturation (SpMet(TM)) could be successfully measured in neonates without compromise in oxygen saturation (SpO2) accuracy. Researchers compared noninvasive SpMet and SpO2 measurements obtained from neonates using the Masimo Radical-7 Pulse CO-Oximeter and Rainbow R25-L disposable sensor with MetHb and SaO2 measurements obtained from blood gas analysis using a laboratory CO-oximeter and found that the accuracy of SpMet (with a Bias of 0.17, Standard Deviation of 0.92, and Average Root Mean Square of 0.93) and SpO2 (with a Bias of 1.4, Standard Deviation of 2.46, and Average Root Mean Square of 2.86) was maintained and correlated with blood gas measurements. Researchers concluded that Masimo's multi-wavelength Pulse CO-Oximeter "can simultaneously measure SpMet and SpO2 in neonates," and that "continuous monitoring of MetHb allows better assessment of toxicity and helps identify the need for ongoing treatment."
