New Design Leads to $30 rainbow® SpHb ReSposable™ Sensor Price—Making SpHb Use Broadly Available
Thanks to recent enhancements to the rainbow® ReSposable design that increase the number of patient applications possible with the Reusable Optical Sensor (ROS™) component of the ReSposable System to 20 or more patients (from five previously), Masimo's internal cost savings can be extended to hospitals wishing to adopt SpHb more widely. The SpHb ReSposable Sensor System is now priced at just $30 USD per patient (based on reasonable committed sensor usage), which represents up to a 50% price reduction over previous pricing. Given that the SpHb ReSposable Sensor also provides Masimo SET® SpO2, pulse rate, perfusion index (PI), methemoglobin (SpMet), and pleth variability index (PVI) measurements, the new sensor pricing makes it possible for SpHb to become a new standard of care for all patients throughout the continuum of care.
