FDNY Makes Largest First Responder Purchase of Masimo Rad-57 Pulse CO-Oximeters to Improve Survival of Firefighters and Victims of Carbon Monoxide Poisoning
Date:9/8/2009

IRVINE, Calif., Sept. 8 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Masimo (Nasdaq: MASI), the inventor of Pulse CO-Oximetry(TM) and Measure-Through Motion and Low-Perfusion pulse oximetry, today announced that the Fire Department of New York City (FDNY) has purchased 86 Masimo Rad-57 Pulse CO-Oximeters as part of their strategic initiative to "improve the survivability of firefighters and victims suffering from carbon monoxide (CO) toxicity."

The Rad-57 has also become an integral part of firefighter rehab, with all fire personnel being evaluated for CO after operating at large fire incidents, to insure responder health and safety. Expanding our utilization of the Rad-57 with this purchase is a natural progression of the succ
