U.S. Health & Human Services Makes Critical Congenital Heart Defect Screening Using Motion-Tolerant Pulse Oximetry a Nationwide Newborn Screening Standard
Date:9/23/2011

e gone undiagnosed.  Researchers concluded that: "Pulse oximetry is a safe, feasible test that adds value to existing screening. It identifies cases of critical congenital heart defects that go undetected with antenatal ultrasonography. The early detection of other diseases is an additional advantage."

According to Dr. Mitchell Goldstein, Neonatologist and Associate Professor of Pediatrics at Loma Linda University Children's Hospital in California, stated, "Congenital heart defects are difficult to detect because many newborns do not show outward signs of failure until they decompensate.  Today, congenital heart disease screening by Masimo SET pulse oximetry represents a safe and inexpensive way to screen for heart disease before the baby has a life-threatening event.  Federal recommendations for universal screening underscore the critical importance of what SET has done to make pulse oximetry a clinically useful tool."

Other Studies Prove: Pulse Oximetry Technology Matters

In addition to the current Lancet-published study, two of the largest CHD studies conducted to date have also shown that Masimo SET is effective in screening newborns for CHD, including a Swedish study of 39,821 newborns published in the British Medical Journal(8) and a Norwegian study of 50,008 newborns published in the Journal of Pediatrics.(9)

Masimo SET (Signal Extraction Technology) is clinically proven in over 100 independent and objective studies to provide the most accurate and reliable SpO2 and pulse rate measurements, even under the most challenging conditions of patient motion and low peripheral perfusion. Utilizing patented signal processing technologies—including parallel engines and adaptive filters—to deliver accurate and reliable measurements of a patient's true oxygenation status, Masimo SET has been shown to reduce false patient monitor alarms by over 95% and expand true alarm detection to
