New Johns Hopkins School of Medicine Study Shows Masimo Noninvasive Hemoglobin Monitoring is Accurate During Complex Spine Surgeries

fusion."

Traditional blood analysis has many drawbacks, including complexity, time-consuming turnaround times that can impact clinical decisions, and blood loss due to invasive blood draws that have been found to contribute substantially to the anemic conditions that commonly occur in critically ill patients—thereby increasing transfusion rates.  Published studies have shown that transfusion of just one or two units of blood significantly increases infection, pneumonia, sepsis, and mortality after surgery.(2, 3)  These studies also suggest that transfusions and their associated risks could be "largely avoided" through implementation of better blood management techniques and "more appropriate indicators" for transfusions.

The ability to noninvasively and continuously trend a patient's hemoglobin blood level during surgery allows for constant assessment of a patient's hemoglobin status, which may enable more appropriate clinical decisions—offering a breakthrough in blood management and patient safety that has the potential to improve patient outcomes, reduce patient exposure to unnecessary blood transfusions, and preserve precious blood resources.

According to Dr. Michael O'Reilly, Chief Medical Officer at Masimo, "Every surgical procedure bears certain risks—some may be preventable while others are unavoidable.  Masimo SpHb fundamentally changes the way clinicians respond to bleeding and a patient's need for a blood transfusion by reducing measurement delays through real-time tracking and trending of hemoglobin blood levels.  This study further underscores the value and impact of SpHb as a cost-effective solution to more accurately, easily, and rapidly monitor hemoglobin."

SpHb is available as part of the Masimo rainbow® SET platform—the first-and-only technology to noninvasively and continuously measure total hemoglobin (SpHb®), oxygen
