Masimo announces CE Marking of Rad-97™ Pulse CO-Oximeter®
NEUCHATEL, Switzerland — Masimo (NASDAQ: MASI) announced today the CE marking of the Rad-97™ Pulse CO-Oximeter®. Rad-97 offers the same Measure-through Motion and Low Perfusion™ SET® pulse oximetry and upgradeable rainbow SET™ technology as the Radical-7® Pulse CO-Oximeter – in a versatile standalone monitor configuration.
Rad-97 features a high-resolution 1080p HD color display with user-friendly multi-touch navigation, similar to Root® and Radical-7, allowing clinicians to easily customize the device to best suit their monitoring needs. Users can also rapidly configure the device to accommodate different patient populations using customizable profiles. Rad-97 provides both built-in wireless connectivity, via Wi-Fi and Bluetooth®, and built-in wired options, including Ethernet, USB, and Nurse Call Interface connections. A rechargeable battery lasting seven hours allows Rad-97 to be used in situations where portability or extended operation without access to power are needed.
In select markets outside the United States, Rad-97 will be available with an optional camera, which will be used in conjunction with Masimo Patient SafetyNet™*. The camera includes a high resolution, high-frame rate video feed, as well as audio, to the Patient SafetyNet view-station. The system will be able to use the hospital's existing IT network and to provide additional viewing of images in the same care area. Through Rad-97, it will be possible to connect other devices a patient may be using, such as glucometers and scales, to Patient SafetyNet and to remotely allow for interaction between clinicians and patients or other clinicians.
Like Radical-7, Rad-97 features Measure-through Motion and Low Perfusion pulse oximetry (SpO2), pulse rate (PR), and perfusion index (PI). Clinicians can add other monitoring solutions such as the rainbow SET measurements total hemoglobin (SpHb®), methemoglobin (SpMet®), acoustic respiration rate (RRa®), carboxyhemoglobin (SpCO®), and oxygen content (SpOC™). In select markets outside the United States, additional parameters such as Oxygen Reserve Index™ (ORi™) and respiration rate from the pleth (RRp™) are available, making Rad-97 the smallest Masimo bedside device currently capable of monitoring the full rainbow SET platform.
"Rad-97 brings our core SET® and rainbow® technologies to a compact new design, which will allow broader applications in many new settings, including low-resource countries and homes," said Joe Kiani, Founder and CEO of Masimo. "We've engineered Rad-97 to take advantage of the latest advances in adaptability and connectivity, packaging Masimo's industry-leading noninvasive technology in a cost-effective monitor that will make it more accessible and useful to clinicians and patients than ever."
ORi and RRp parameters and the camera feature do not have 510(k) clearance and are not available in the U.S.
Masimo (NASDAQ: MASI) is a global leader in innovative noninvasive monitoring technologies. Our mission is to improve patient outcomes and reduce the cost of care by taking noninvasive monitoring to new sites and applications. In 1995, the company debuted Masimo SET® Measure-through Motion and Low Perfusion™ pulse oximetry, which has been shown in multiple studies to significantly reduce false alarms and accurately monitor for true alarms. Masimo SET® is estimated to be used on more than 100 million patients in leading hospitals and other healthcare settings around the world. In 2005, Masimo introduced rainbow® Pulse CO-Oximetry technology, allowing noninvasive and continuous monitoring of blood constituents that previously could only be measured invasively, including total hemoglobin (SpHb®), oxygen content (SpOC™), carboxyhemoglobin (SpCO®), methemoglobin (SpMet®), and more recently, Pleth Variability Index (PVi®) and Oxygen Reserve Index (ORi™), in addition to SpO2, pulse rate, and perfusion index (PI). In 2014, Masimo introduced Root®, an intuitive patient monitoring and connectivity platform with the Masimo Open Connect™ (MOC-9™) interface. Masimo is also taking an active leadership role in mHealth with products such as the Radius-7® wearable patient monitor and the MightySat™ fingertip pulse oximeter.
