Standardizing on Masimo SET Allows Clinicians to Overcome the Limitations of Conventional Pulse Oximetry, Offering Significant Clinical Advancements
IRVINE, Calif., June 3 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Masimo, the inventor of Pulse CO-Oximetry(TM) and Measure-Through Motion and Low-Perfusion Pulse Oximetry, today announced it has completed the conversion of Duke University Hospital to Masimo SET pulse oximetry technology.
"Ultimately, the decision to convert to Masimo SET came down to what was best for patients," said Tony Caruso, Senior Director of Clinical Engineering, Duke University Health System in Durham, North Carolina. "It is critically important for us to access technologies that result in improvements in patient care. In this case, we believe we have improved our ability to increase detection of true clinical events earlier."
"In the emergency department, there are many times when we don't have time to second-guess our pulse oximeter performance, wonder whether the measurements we are getting are accurate, or take excessive time to obtain a reading," said Frank DeMarco, RN, emergency department clinical operations director, Duke University Hospital. "This technology offers us improvements over the system we had used previously and, hopefully, will contribute to more effective clinical operations."
Masimo Founder and CEO, Joe E. Kiani, stated, "We are happy to be the pulse oximetry standard-of-care solution chosen by the Duke University Hospital system to noninvasively and continuously monitor their patients. With the unprecedented accuracy and performance of Masimo SET, clinicians at Duke are afforded the opportunity to better monitor, manage and treat patients using advanced pulse oximetry capabilities that allow them to detect life-threatening events earlier."
