New Clinical Studies Presented at the American Society of Anesthesiologists Annual Meeting Show Benefits of Masimo Noninvasive Technologies: SpHb, PVI, RRa, and SEDLine
Date:10/19/2011

IRVINE, Calif., Oct. 19, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Masimo (NASDAQ: MASI) announced today that over 25 new clinical studies evaluating Masimo noninvasive patient monitoring technologies were presented at the largest gathering of anesthesiologists in the world, the American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA) Annual Meeting in Chicago, Illinois.  The following studies highlight the positive clinical outcomes and patient safety impact of Masimo's unique noninvasive measurement technologies, including: total hemoglobin (SpHb®), pleth variability index (PVI®), acoustic respiration rate (RRa™), and SEDLine® brain function monitoring.

SpHb® & PVI®Researchers Steven Frank, M.D., James Rothschild, M.D., and John Ulatowski, M.D., at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Maryland found that the combination of continuous SpHb and PVI monitoring "may improve the efficacy and safety of the intraoperative autologous normovolemic hemodilution (IAHD) blood conservation technique that helps avoid allogeneic blood transfusions." The study, conducted in patients undergoing major abdominal or orthopedic surgery, concluded that SpHb was advantageous in "eliminating the delay in intraoperative decision-making that occurs when Hb measurements are obtained by conventional laboratory testing" while PVI was a "useful index of intravascular volume during the significant fluid shifts that occurred with IAHD, with increasing PVI indicating hypovolemia and decreasing PVI indicating adequate fluid resuscitation and blood re-infusion."

Two studies, conducted by the Long Beach Veterans Healthcare System in California, found that noninvasive SpHb measurements provided valuable clinical assessment information in remote, rural, and community settings.  Nitin Shah, M.D., and Kinj
