Masimo rainbow Acoustic Monitoring Technology Cleared for Market in Japan
Date:10/10/2011

TOKYO and IRVINE, Calif., Oct. 10, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Masimo (NASDAQ: MASI) announced today that it has received Japanese Ministry of Health Labor & Welfare (MHLW) regulatory clearance for its Rad-87® Pulse CO-Oximeter with rainbow® Acoustic Monitoring technology—providing noninvasive and continuous acoustic respiration rate (RRa™) measurements that are accurate, easy-to-use, and enhance patient compliance.  Available for the first time in Japan, RRa represents a breakthrough solution for measuring respiration rate in real-time to track and trend patient breathing—offering automated assessments that may enable earlier detection of respiratory compromise and patient distress.

Dr. Toshiyasu Suzuki, MD, PhD, Professor of Anesthesiology, Tokai University School of Medicine in Kanagawa Japan, who is one of the first Rad-87 with RRa users, stated, “The number of surgeries has been increasing at acute care hospitals since DPC starte
