No Blood Needed Thanks to Innovative Medical Technology
Date:9/26/2008

SYDNEY, Australia, Sept. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- A non-invasive blood monitoring device that removes the need to draw blood to monitor patients has won the 2008 Kerrin Rennie Award for Excellence in Medical Technology. The award was presented to Masimo Corporation on 24 September at the Medical Technology Association of Australia (MTAA) dinner in Sydney.

The Radical-7 Pulse CO-Oximeter from Masimo Corporation continuously and non-invasively measures blood constituents in patients without having to draw blood. The device uses multiple wavelengths of light in a single, simple to apply sensor. It can be used reliably in different care settings, for example at the patient's bedside or during transport.

In addition to its unique use of algorithms to ensure accurate patient monitoring, the Radical-7 includes a unique technology platform that allows for additional features to be added as simple software upgrades.

In congratulating the winner, Anne Trimmer, MTAA CEO, said: "Masimo's Oximeter is an excellent example of innovation in the medical technology sector. It benefits the patient, the clinician and the health system."

The Kerrin Rennie Award for Excellence in Medical Technology -- Improving Quality of Life recognises the innovative and extraordinary contribution of medical technology in improving health outcomes of Australian patients.

The award dinner was held as part of a two-day conference on medical technology from Wednesday 24 - Thursday 25 September at Star City in Sydney. Companies could enter products launched in Australia between 1 January 2007 and 1 August 2008 used in the diagnosis, prevention, treatment or management of disease and disability. Entries were judged by an independent panel.

The other finalists are:
