Masimo is passionate about making innovative technologies that give clinicians the tools they need to do what is best for patient care. That's why it is gratifying to see so many independent clinicians and clinical researchers take the time to independently evaluate our products and technologies—and then to communicate the positive impacts on patient care and safety that can be realized through their use.
More than 200 independent and objective studies by researchers around the world have demonstrated the clinical advantages of our technologies.

Masimo rainbow® Pulse CO-Oximetry and Acoustic Monitoring
A breakthrough technology platform that noninvasively and continuously measures multiple parameters that previously required invasive procedures, including blood constituents, fluid responsiveness, and respiration rate.
- Total Hemoglobin (SpHb®)
SpHb has been shown to help clinicians assess hemoglobin status and determine treatment and additional test options in surgery, critical care, outpatient care areas, and the emergency department.
- Pleth Variability Index (PVI®)
PVI provides an indicator of the variability of the perfusion index (PI) over the respiratory cycle and has been shown to help clinicians to assess fluid responsiveness and improve fluid management to reduce patient risk.
- Acoustic Respiration Rate (RRa™)
RRa noninvasively and continuously measures respiration rate.
- Carboxyhemoglobin (SpCO®)
SpCO has been shown to help clinicians assess carbon monoxide levels in the blood and determine treatment and additional test options.
- Methemoglobin (SpMet®)
SpMet has been shown to help clinicians noninvasively and continuously assess methemoglobinemia status and determine treatment and additional test options.
Clinically proven to provide the most accurate and reliable SpO2, perfusion index (PI), and pulse rate measurements—even under the most challenging conditions of patient motion and low peripheral perfusion—Masimo SET has been shown to reduce false patient monitor alarms by over 95% and expand true alarm detection to over 97%.
Combining Masimo rainbow SET® Pulse CO-Oximetry™ and rainbow® Acoustic Monitoring with wireless clinician notifications via pager or smartphone, Patient SafetyNet provides an unmatched level of safety for up to 80 patients on four floors—facilitating early clinical response to preempt sentinel events and avoid unnecessary ICU transfers.
SedLine brain function monitors feature 4-channels of high-quality EEG data to facilitate immediate detection of asymmetrical activity, rapid assessments, enhanced anesthetic management and control, and more individualized titration that helps clinicians achieve targeted sedation throughout all phases of anesthesia.
Capnography and gas monitoring technologies are available in a variety of solutions including EMMA Emergency Capnometer, the world’s first self–contained, real–time respiratory gas analyzer designed for CO2 monitoring in emergency transport, emergency care, intensive care, and other clinical settings.
