New Multi-Center Study Finds Clinical Practice Change with Masimo SET Pulse Oximetry Reduces Severe Eye Damage More Than 50% in Premature Newborns
Date:9/30/2010

newborns (weighing less than 1,250 grams / 2.75 lbs) at two Emory University (Atlanta, GA) hospitals during two consecutive three-year periods (Periods 1 and 2) and an 18-month follow-up period (Period 3).  During Period 1, Nellcor pulse oximeters were used in both centers and oxygen saturation targets were set at 92-100%.  In Period 2, new practice guidelines for lower oxygen saturation targets of 88-93% for premature infants were implemented at both centers, but only one center switched to Masimo SET oximeters.  In Period 3, the center previously using Nellcor oximeters switched to Masimo SET.

Study results showed that in Period 1, when both centers were using Nellcor, ROP rates were not different between centers.  In period 2, when both centers implemented a practice change, the center switching to Masimo SET reduced ROP rates from 12% to 5% while the center using Nellcor did not reduce ROP rates at all, remaining at a 13% ROP rate.  In period 3, the center previously using conventional pulse oximetry switched to Masimo SET and reduced ROP rates from 13% to 6%.  Researchers concluded that the "reduction in the incidence of severe ROP and need for laser therapy was associated with the use of signal extraction pulse oximetry (Masimo SET)" and the study "findings lend further support to the significance of using improved saturation monitors in managing critically-ill infants."  

According to lead researcher, Armando Castillo, MD, Neonatologist at Northeast Georgia Medical Center, "Our study findings show that Masimo SET is not only clinically beneficial, but uniquely impactful for reducing the incidence and prevalence of ROP in Extremely Low Birth Weight infants.  As such, NICU clinicians wanting to use evidence-based strategies should seriously consider implementing Masimo SET."
