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

over 97%. Because of this superior performance, Masimo SET is the leading Measure-Through Motion and Low Perfusion SpO2 solution incorporated into over 100 multiparameter monitors and 50 monitoring brands—including Atom, Datascope, GE Medical, Medtronic, Philips, Spacelabs, Welch Allyn, and Zoll, among others.

Joe Kiani, Founder, Chairman, and CEO of Masimo, commented that, "We commend HHS, the federal advisory committee, individual states, and the countless medical professional, public health leaders, and advocates that worked so hard to give our nation's smallest and most vulnerable patients a resounding voice. Adding CHD screening by Measure-Through Motion and Low Perfusion pulse oximetry is a significant advancement of our nation's newborn screening standard that will save untold newborn lives and help to prevent the agony of families who are left to cope with the devastating effects of undetected CHD."

To date, because of the overwhelming clinical evidence and appeals by grassroots advocates made up largely of parents with babies affected by CHD, Maryland and New Jersey have passed legislation promoting CHD screening by pulse oximetry in newborns with similar screening initiatives taking place in Beijing, China and the U.K.  For a complete list of states' status on CHD screening legislation, visit:  www.cchdscreeningmap.com.
