New Clinical Study Finds Masimo Perfusion Index (PI) Predicts Low Systemic Blood Flow in Preterm Infants
Date:12/17/2009

IRVINE, Calif., Dec. 17 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Masimo (Nasdaq: MASI), the inventor of Pulse CO-Oximetry(TM) and Measure-Through Motion and Low Perfusion pulse oximetry, today announced that new research findings, published in the November 2009 issue of the Journal of Perinatology, show that Masimo perfusion index (PI) accurately predicts low superior vena cava flow (SVC) in preterm, very-low-birth-weight infants--representing a promising method for continuous and noninvasive monitoring of systemic blood flow.(1)

SVC flow, a measure of blood flow returning to the heart from the upper body, is useful information in the cardiovascular management of neonates because it helps determine risk for intraventricular hemorrhage, developmental impairments, morbidity, and mortality.(2-4) However, detecting low SVC flow is challenging because current measurement methods are complicated, operator dependent, or can be inaccurate in certain neonatal conditions.(5-6) Masimo PI provides a reliable continuous, noninvasive measure of the ratio of pulsatile blood flow to the non-pulsatile or static blood in peripheral tissue, which provides a rapid, reliable, and cost-effective method to help clinicians assess perfusion and circulatory status.

In the study, Dr. Takahashi and colleagues at the National Center for Child Health and Development in Tokyo, Japan, used the Masimo Radical pulse oximeter and Masimo LNOP NeoPt-L sensor to monitor PI in 24 preterm infants during the first 72-hours following birth. When comparing PI to echocardiography to directly measure SVC, they found that a PI of <0.44 detected low SVC flow (defined as <40ml kg -1 min -1) with good sensitivity (88%) and specificity (86%). A total of eight out of 24 infants were confirmed to have low SVC flow, and PI positively detecting seven--leading researche
