Two Fire Departments Honored for Excellence in Emergency Medical Services

Fire-Service Based EMS Awards Presented at 28th Annual National Fire and Emergency Services Dinner

Washington, DC and Irvine, CA – May 19, 2016 – The Congressional Fire Services Institute (CFSI) and Masimo (NASDAQ: MASI) honored two fire departments for best practices and innovative solutions in the delivery of emergency medical services with the Excellence in Fire Service-Based EMS Award. The award presentation took place on May 5th in Washington, DC. Masimo is proud to be a co-sponsor of this award.

  • The Olathe Fire Department in Olathe, Kansas, established the Mobile Integrated Health (MIH) team to provide better treatment in the field for patients. With the support of local government, community partners, and the Olathe Medical Center, the MIH team reduced the number of patient transports to emergency rooms, monitored the progress of these patients, and scheduled follow-up visits for evaluation and continued treatment.
  • Kittitas Valley Fire and Rescue (KVFR) in Kittitas, Washington, implemented new programs that are reducing demand for emergency services while providing better care and treatment for its citizens. KVFR has launched a community paramedicine program to provide alternative medical care options to alleviate pressure on the 911 system and improve patient outcomes. They conduct educational programs for students, law enforcement, and other community members that address the dangers of alcohol and drug abuse. In addition, KVFR has developed a new fee structure and an educational program to address a rising call volume for non-injury lift assistance requests at assisted living facilities.

"CFSI takes great pride in co-sponsoring the Excellence in Fire Service-Based EMS Awards with Masimo," said Dr. William F. Jenaway, Ph.D., President of CFSI. "Through this awards program, we are able to recognize innovations in the delivery of emergency medical services throughout the nation. The recipients of the 2016 award – Kittitas Valley (WA) Fire and Rescue Department and the Olathe (KS) Fire Department – certainly demonstrated themselves worthy of this recognition by developing new programs to enhance their delivery of emergency medical services. Congratulations to both departments."

"Firefighters and emergency services personnel are our heroes. They put their lives on the line for us every day and we want to make sure they have the technology and community support they need to keep them safe and help them better care for the citizens they protect," said Joe Kiani, Founder and CEO of Masimo. "Masimo is honored to co-sponsor this awards program with CFSI and to recognize these two departments for their innovative achievements."

Approximately 1,600 fire and emergency services leaders attended the 28th Annual National Fire and Emergency Services Dinner to pay tribute to the dedication and commitment of the nation's fire and emergency services providers. Hosted by CFSI, the annual dinner benefits the mission of the nonprofit policy organization, which is designed to educate members of Congress about fire and life safety issues. This year's guest speaker was the Honorable Tom Vilsack, U.S. Secretary of Agriculture.

The Excellence in Fire Service-Based EMS Awards Program was established in 2010 to recognize volunteer, career, and combination fire departments for excellence in and enhancements to the delivery of emergency medical services. By showcasing their best practices, the awards program provides ideas for other fire departments to consider implementing as they seek to improve their fire service-based EMS systems.

One of France's University Hospitals Adopts Masimo Radical-7®, Including SpHb®, PVI®, and SET® Pulse Oximetry

Neuchatel, Switzerland – April 21, 2016 – Masimo (NASDAQ: MASI) announced today that Centre Hospitalier Universitaire (CHU) de Limoges, in Limoges, France has installed Masimo's Radical-7®, including noninvasive, continuous hemoglobin (SpHb®), Pleth Variability Index (PVI®), and SET® pulse oximetry technology, to monitor surgical patients and critical patients in the post-anesthesia care unit and intensive care unit.

"For three years, we tested SpHb and PVI on every surgical patient in our facility and then compared this data to the previous period without this technology," said Professor Nathalie Nathan, Head of the Department of Anesthesiology at CHU Limoges. "In this retrospective review of before and after periods across the entire hospital, in different clinical settings and with many different practitioners, we found that there was a notable reduction in mortality in surgeries lasting longer than 2 hours and patients in the 60+ age range."

SpHb is a breakthrough measurement that noninvasively and continuously measures total hemoglobin in the blood, and offers real-time visibility into changes – or lack of changes – in hemoglobin between invasive blood samples. PVI is a measure of dynamic changes in Perfusion Index (PI) that occur during one or more complete respiratory cycles, and may show changes that reflect physiologic factors such as vascular tone, circulating blood volume, and intrathoracic pressure excursions. PVI is noninvasive, easily obtained and has no incremental procedural cost.

"According to the World Health Organization, France ranks number one in the world in patient safety. For over 40 years, CHU Limoges has been recognized as a leading hospital in France for patient care, training, research and innovation," stated Joe Kiani, Founder and CEO of Masimo. "We are impressed with the format of this three-year evaluation and happy to see Limoges incorporate SpHb and PVI in the care of their patients."

CHU Limoges is a university hospital that includes four locations and one nursing home. Dupuytren (866 beds) hosts an emergency department, Jean Rebeyrol (459 beds) handles rehabilitation patients, Cluzeau (59 beds) specializes in respiratory diseases, diabetes, endocrinology and metabolic diseases, and Mother & Child (197 beds) specializes in pediatric and gynecological emergencies.

New Clinical Study Reports Relationship Between Masimo's Oxygen Reserve Index (ORI) and Arterial Partial Pressure of Oxygen During Surgery

Neuchatel, Switzerland – March 31, 2016 – Masimo (NASDAQ: MASI) announced today that a new retrospective study reports the relationship between Masimo's Oxygen Reserve Index (ORI) and arterial partial pressure of oxygen (PaO2) during surgery. The study suggests that ORI may provide an advanced indication of impending desaturation in adults undergoing surgery based on trends in the relationship between ORI and PaO2.1


Masimo Root® with ORI

ORI, Masimo's 11th rainbow® parameter2, which is available outside of the United States, is a relative index of the PaO2 operating in the range of 100 to 200 mm Hg. ORI can provide a calculated oxygen reserve index that may add to information from pulse oximetry when oxygen saturation (SpO2) is >98%. ORI is intended to supplement, not replace, SpO2 monitoring and PaO2 measurements.

In the study, published in the journal Anesthesia & Analgesia and conducted at Loma Linda University, Dr. Applegate and colleagues studied 106 patients in which arterial catheterization and intraoperative arterial blood gas analysis were planned during surgery. Multiwavelength Pulse CO-oximetry data from multiple sensors on each patient were continuously collected (Masimo Radical-7® with Root®). A retrospective analysis was then conducted to evaluate the ORI to PaO2 relationship.

Regression analysis showed a positive ORI to PaO2 relationship for PaO2 values up to 240 mm Hg (r2 = 0.536), but not for PaO2 over 240 mm Hg (r2 = 0.0016). Measured PaO2 was ≥100 mm Hg for all ORI values over 0.24, and when ORI was higher than 0.55, the measured PaO2 was ≥150 mm Hg in 96.6% of samples.

The investigators concluded, "This study suggests that intraoperative ORI can distinguish PaO2 between 100 and 150 mm Hg when SpO2 is >98%. Decreases in ORI to near 0.24 may provide advance indication of falling PaO2 when SpO2 is still >98% and above the PaO2 level at which SaO2 [arterial oxygen saturation] declines rapidly. Usefulness of ORI >0.24 to distinguish PaO2 ≥100 mm Hg and ORI >0.55 to distinguish PaO2 ≥150 mm Hg should be tested prospectively in a range of clinical settings." Additionally, the investigators noted that "the clinical utility of interventions based on continuous ORI monitoring should also be studied prospectively," and that other clinical or feasibility limitations may not have been identified. The authors also noted that the study was limited by a small number of subjects and samples with PaO2 values <100 mm Hg, and that the study results did not apply to intensive care settings.

The Loma Linda University School of Medicine, Department of Anesthesiology received a grant from Masimo to support the data collection for this study.

Radical-7 with Root has a CE Mark with the ORI parameter. ORI has not received FDA 510(k) clearance and is not available for sale in the United States.

New Study Reports on Accuracy of Masimo's Blue® Sensors at Saturations Below 85% in Children with Cyanotic Congenital Heart Disease

Irvine, California – March 17, 2016 – Masimo (NASDAQ: MASI) announced today that a new study reported on the accuracy of Masimo's Blue® sensors as compared to Nellcor and Masimo Standard sensors for cyanotic children with blood oxygen saturation less than 85%.1 Masimo's Blue sensor was designed specifically for cyanotic infants and children with congenital heart disease.

The study was performed at the Lucile Packard Children's Hospital at Stanford University with the aim of determining, in children with cyanotic congenital heart disease, which of three different pulse oximeter sensors is the most accurate at lower blood oxygen saturation levels, when compared to the "gold standard" of arterial blood gas analysis with CO-oximetry. The three sensors were Masimo SET® with LNCS® sensor (Masimo Standard), Masimo SET® with Blue sensor (Masimo Blue), and Nellcor N-600 with MAX-I sensor (Nellcor).

In the study, published in the journal Pediatric Critical Care Medicine, Dr. Harris and colleagues collected data from 50 infants and children weighing 3–20 kg with baseline saturations under 90% (measured by pulse oximetry at the time of clinical assessment) undergoing surgical or catheterization procedures. Following standard care monitoring, which included placement of the Masimo Standard sensor, the Masimo Blue and Nellcor MAX-I sensors were placed on a thumb or great toe, or alternatively on a finger. Up to four arterial blood samples were taken from each subject.

Compared to the CO-oximeter saturations (SaO2) over all measurements, the mean error ± standard deviation of the saturation values from pulse oximetry (SpO2) for the Masimo Blue, Nellcor, and Masimo Standard sensors were 1.7% ± 3.3%, 1.7% ± 5.4%, and 2.4% ± 4.9%, respectively.

The investigators concluded that "the Masimo Blue sensor has improved accuracy at saturations 75–85% versus the Nellcor and Masimo Standard sensors," although the authors noted inaccuracies with all three sensors in this saturation range. The authors suggested there is a continued need for device manufacturers to calibrate and develop algorithms for pulse oximeters to have improved overall accuracy at saturations less than 85%. The authors further stated "clinical decisions at saturations below 85% should not be made by pulse oximetry alone; instead, co-oximetry and/or an arterial blood gas is warranted."

Study limitations included small sample size, difficulty collecting steady-state samples from the operating room and catheterization lab, and placement of the Masimo Standard sensor in nonstandard locations.

The institution where this study was performed received a grant from Masimo to partially support the data collection for this study.

Masimo Announces Iris Gateway at HIMSS16

Integrated Medical Device Data Management Solution Designed to Fill the Gaps in Electronic Medical Records

Irvine, California – March 1, 2016 – Masimo (NASDAQ: MASI) today announced the debut of Iris™ Gateway, a server-based software solution for integrating medical device data, at the HIMSS (Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society) 2016 Annual Conference and Exhibition in Las Vegas.

Data generated from medical devices remain captive within each device, and may not be captured in the patients' electronic medical records (EMR). Iris Gateway can provide a timely and cost-effective solution by connecting to existing medical devices and performing the required translations to move the data from the devices into EMRs. Iris Gateway can be deployed on a remote server farm or as a server appliance in the hospital.

The Iris ports on the Root® patient monitor allow other medical devices (such as infusion pumps, ventilators, patient monitors, and "smart" beds) to connect to Iris Gateway via Root. Data from these connected devices can be associated with the patient and entered into the patient's EMR, via Iris Gateway. Root with noninvasive blood pressure and temperature measurements, deployed at the bedside or on a roll stand, can chart these parameters at the point of care while also copying the data into an EMR.

"Iris Gateway is an important part of Masimo's goal of bridging medical device data silos," said Joe Kiani, Founder and CEO of Masimo. "It can be used to connect isolated devices to hospital EMR systems in high-acuity settings like the OR and the ICU or in low-acuity settings like medical-surgical units. When data from different medical devices is more readily available in the patient's electronic medical record, they may provide a clearer and more complete picture of the patient. At Masimo, we are dedicated to providing clinicians with vital information when they need it most."

Manipal Hospitals is the First in India to Adopt Masimo Patient SafetyNet™

Irvine, California & Bengaluru, India – February 25, 2016 Masimo (NASDAQ: MASI) announced today that Manipal Hospitals is the first hospital in India to install Masimo Patient SafetyNet, a remote monitoring and clinician notification system.

"With Patient SafetyNet, we are now able to monitor a certain set of patients 24x7," said Gopal Devanahalli, Chief Operating Officer of Manipal Hospitals. "One of the key features of this system is its proprietary Signal Extraction Technology (SET®) that helps significantly reduce false alarms."

"This is the technological advancement that we were awaiting," said Dr. Nagendra Swamy SC, MD, Senior President, Manipal Health Enterprises, and Group Medical Director & Chairman, Quality Council, Manipal Health Enterprises. "The technology will notify the hospital team when there are signs of deterioration and allow our patients to be monitored even though the nurse is not physically in the room with them."

Masimo Patient SafetyNet works in conjunction with Masimo bedside monitors which provide continuous and noninvasive monitoring of oxygen saturation (SpO2), pulse rate, respiration rate, and other parameters. When changes occur in the measured values, which may indicate deterioration in the patient's condition, in addition to bedside alarms, Masimo Patient SafetyNet automatically sends wireless alerts directly to clinicians. Continuous patient surveillance with Masimo Patient SafetyNet has been shown to reduce the need for rescue events and intensive care unit transfers in hospitals and, as a result, can reduce costs related to these events.1,2

"Manipal Hospitals treats close to 2 million patients annually and needed a monitoring system that they could trust would work in challenging patient populations," said Joe Kiani, Founder and CEO of Masimo. "We are excited to see this shift internationally with more and more hospitals worldwide recognizing the importance of integrating remote monitoring systems as a part of their patient safety initiatives."

Masimo's rainbow® Acoustic Monitoring (RAM) was Associated with Fewer Alarm Events During Planned Moderate Sedation in New Clinical Study

For Breath Rates Less Than or Equal to 4 Breaths Per Minute, RAM Showed 78% True Positives and 22% False Positives, While Capnography Showed 30% True Positives and 70% False Positives

Irvine, California – February 12, 2016 – Masimo (NASDAQ: MASI) announced today that Masimo's rainbow® Acoustic Monitoring (RAM) was associated with fewer alarm events during planned moderate sedation in a new clinical study.1

This two-part pilot study used RAM and SedLine® brain function monitoring as the additional monitoring parameters during planned moderate sedation to (1) determine the incidences of alarm events (desaturation, respiratory depression and deeper than intended sedation), and (2) determine whether monitoring with these parameters is associated with fewer alarm events.

RAM noninvasively and continuously measures respiration rate using an innovative adhesive sensor with an integrated acoustic transducer that is applied to the patient's neck.

In the two-part study, published in the journal Anesthesia & Analgesia by Dr. Richard Applegate II and colleagues from the Loma Linda University School of Medicine, data were collected from adult patients undergoing gastroenterology or interventional radiology procedures under moderate sedation. The patients were monitored per standard protocols (electrocardiography, blood pressure, pulse oximetry, and capnography) along with the additional parameters RAM and SedLine. RAM and SedLine were not visible to the care teams in part one of the study (standard) but were visible to the care teams in part two of the study (advanced). Alarm events were defined as desaturation (SpO2 <=92%), acoustic respiration rate <=8 breaths per minute, and PSI <=50.

Data were analyzed from 90 patients (44 standard and 46 advanced). There were 55% fewer alarm events in advanced patients compared with standard patients (median 2.5 vs. 5.5, p=0.038). Fewer advanced patients had >=1 respiratory depression event (17 vs 26; p=0.035) or >=1 desaturation event (15 vs 25; p=0.02).

The investigators also compared respiratory rate events between capnography (using the Covidien Capnostream™ 20p) and RAM in the standard group and conducted a retrospective analysis to determine the true positive rates for capnography and RAM. The true positive rates were 30% and 78% respectively; the false positive rates were 70% and 22% respectively.

There were no significant differences between groups in the number of deeper than intended sedation events using SedLine.

The authors concluded that "the use of advanced monitoring during planned moderate sedation was associated with fewer alarm events, patients experiencing desaturation, and patients experiencing respiratory depression alarm events. ... The findings The findings of this pilot study suggest that further study into the safety and outcome impacts of advanced monitoring during procedure-related sedation is warranted."

In New Clinical Study Masimo's Oxygen Reserve Index Helps Clinicians Detect Impending Desaturation in Pediatric Patients

Neuchatel, Switzerland – February 4, 2016 – Masimo (NASDAQ: MASI) announced today that in a new clinical study, Masimo's Oxygen Reserve Index (ORI), the first noninvasive and continuous parameter to provide insight into patients' oxygen reserve when they are receiving supplemental oxygen, helped clinicians in the early identification of impending desaturation in pediatric patients during induction of anesthesia.1

Oxygen saturation (SpO2) using pulse oximetry provides noninvasive, continuous visibility to arterial blood oxygenation in hypoxia (lower than normal oxygenation) and normoxia (normal oxygenation). For procedures such as induction of anesthesia and intubation, clinicians will usually build an "oxygen reserve" in the patient by providing supplemental oxygen or "pre-oxygenation," creating a transitional state of hyperoxia (higher than normal oxygenation). The extent of hyperoxia can be determined by the measured partial pressure of oxygen in the blood (PaO2 ), which requires invasive arterial blood sampling and laboratory analysis. When patients have low oxygen reserve prior to intubation of the trachea, they are susceptible to sudden hypoxia, depending upon the time taken to perform the intubation.

ORI, Masimo's 11th rainbow® parameter2, is a relative index of the partial pressure of oxygen in arterial blood (PaO2) within the range of 100 to 200 mmHg that can provide insight into significant changes in oxygen reserve. ORI is intended to supplement, not replace, SpO2 monitoring and PaO2 measurements.

In a prospective study published in Anesthesiology and conducted at Children's Medical Center in Dallas, Texas, Dr. Peter Szmuk and colleagues evaluated whether ORI could provide a clinically important warning of impending desaturation in pediatric patients with induced apnea after pre-oxygenation. The investigators enrolled 33 patients in this study. Eight of these resumed spontaneous ventilation during the study period, leaving 25 apneic patients to evaluate, with an average age of 7.6 years. Data were recorded continuously by the Masimo Radical-7® Pulse CO-Oximeter®, connected to the patient through an R1 25L rainbow® sensor. ORI was retrospectively calculated and was not visible to investigators.

After pre-oxygenation with supplemental oxygen, anesthesia induction, and endotracheal intubation, the anesthesia circuit was disconnected and SpO2 was allowed to decrease to 90% before ventilation recommenced. During the period of apnea, the ORI progressively decreased from a mean of 0.73 ±0.2 at the beginning of apnea to 0.37 ± 0.1. The SpO2 remained at 100% during this initial period. After decreases in ORI that would trigger the ORI alarm if monitored in real time, there was a median elapsed time of 31.5 seconds before the SpO2 decreased to 98%. After reinstitution of ventilation, SpO2 values declined further to 88%, before recovering to 98%, 34 seconds later. The researchers concluded that "In this pilot study, we found that during prolonged apnea in healthy anesthetized children, the ORI detected impending desaturation in median of 31.5 seconds (IQR, 19 to 34.3 seconds) before noticeable changes in SpO2 occurred. Knowing even roughly how much time remains before the rapid desaturation phase begins seems likely to guide proper decisions."

Radical-7® with Root® has a CE Mark with the ORI parameter. ORI is not FDA cleared and is not available for sale in the United States.

New Study Shows Utility of Masimo rainbow Acoustic Monitoring

IRVINE, California – January 21, 2016 – Masimo (NASDAQ: MASI) announced today that in a new study that compared acoustic respiration rate (RRa®) from Masimo's rainbow® Acoustic Monitoring (RAM) to respiration rate from conventional capnography, researchers concluded that RAM was useful for monitoring dental patients under intravenous anesthesia.1

rainbow Acoustic Monitoring (RAM) from Masimo.

The Anesthesia Patient Safety Foundation (APSF) and The Joint Commission recommend continuous oxygenation and ventilation monitoring in all patients receiving opioid-based pain medications.2 RAM noninvasively and continuously measures respiration rate using an innovative adhesive sensor with an integrated acoustic transducer that is easily and comfortably applied to the patient's neck.

The study, published in the Journal of Clinical Monitoring and Computing by Dr. Kentaro Ouchi and colleagues from Japan, compared the respiration rate measurements from RAM and capnography (Psychorich IS nasal cannula and BP-608 Omron Colin monitor) in non-intubated patients with dental anxiety undergoing dental treatment. A total of 1953 data points of respiratory rate were taken from the start to the end of anesthesia. Over the entire observation period, the results showed a significantly higher detection of respiratory rate by RAM (1884 points, 96.5%) than by capnography When comparing respiration rate from RAM and capnography during the induction, intraoperative, and emergence periods, the 95% limits of agreement (LOA) were -7.4 to 6.7, -5.4 to 7.0, -3.9 to 5.3, respectively. The researchers commented that this study was only a comparison between two devices, since neither method could be considered a "corrective control," or gold-standard reference.

The authors concluded, "In comparison between capnography using a nasal cannula for continuous monitoring for the respiratory rate, the acoustic method is useful during intravenous general anesthesia in unintubated spontaneously breathing patients undergoing dental procedures." The authors note that the acoustic method might not accurately detect respiratory rate in cases in which a dental air turbine is used.

North Carolina's Appalachian Regional Healthcare System Selects Patient SafetyNet™ and Radius-7™

Irvine, California and Boone, North Carolina – January 13, 2016 - Masimo (NASDAQ: MASI) and Appalachian Regional Healthcare System announced that Watauga Medical Center in Boone is the first hospital in North Carolina to install Masimo Patient SafetyNet, a remote monitoring and clinician notification system, and Radius-7, a patient-worn monitor that is designed to allow for patient mobility along with continuous monitoring.

"We are always looking for cutting-edge technologies focused on patient safety," said Richard Sparks, President & CEO, Appalachian Regional Healthcare System. "We wanted a system that provides continuous monitoring that wasn't restricted to the patient's room. The Radius-7 combined with Patient SafetyNet allows us the ability to keep a close eye on our patients 24/7."

Continuous patient surveillance with Patient SafetyNet has been shown to reduce the need for rescue events and intensive care unit transfers in hospitals and, as a result, can reduce costs related to these events.1,2 When changes occur in the measured values, which may indicate deterioration in the patient's condition, in addition to bedside alerts, the alert also shows in the Telemetry room and nurse's stations. This allows the telemetry technician to contact the unit where the alarm is happening immediately. Masimo Patient SafetyNet works in conjunction with Masimo beside monitors and the Radius-7 wearable monitor to provide wireless, continuous and non-invasive monitoring of oxygenation, pulse rate and respiration, among other parameters.

Appalachian Regional Healthcare System's Charles A. Cannon, Jr. Memorial Hospital also recently implemented continuous monitoring. At this location, the monitors are connected to the patient call system. When an alert goes off, it sounds through the call lights and then sends a message to the nurse's station call monitor.

"Watauga Medical Center in Boone and Cannon Memorial Hospital in Linville understand the importance of patient safety," said Joe Kiani, Founder and CEO of Masimo. "We are excited to see more and more hospitals implement continuous monitoring of their patients in post-surgical wards, as part of their patient safety protocols."

Masimo to Debut Respiration Rate in MightySat™ at Consumer Electronics Show – First Fingertip Pulse Oximeter to Measure Breath Rate

Visit CES booth 73710 for Live Audience Cycling Competition

Irvine, California – January 6, 2016 – Masimo (NASDAQ: MASI) announced today that it has added a new parameter, respiration rate from the pleth (RRp), to its MightySat fingertip pulse oximeter. MightySat is intended for general wellness and health applications including sports, fitness, and relaxation management.

Respiration rate, or the number of breaths per minute, is infrequently measured outside of healthcare settings because it typically requires manual counting of breaths with a timer and then multiplying to convert to a per minute rate or chest leads or straps that are not convenient to use. Fingertip pulse oximeters are being increasingly used for general wellness and health applications. Now consumers will be able to quickly and easily measure respiration rate, in addition to arterial oxygen saturation (SpO2), pulse rate (PR), perfusion index (PI), and Plethysmograph Variability Index (PVI®).

Masimo pulse oximeters are #1 in U.S. hospitals1 because they provide accurate measurements when other pulse oximeters fail, by using a revolutionary invention called Signal Extraction Technology (SET®). MightySat features hospital-grade SET pulse oximetry and also provides parameters not available on other fingertip pulse oximeters, such as RRp and PVI. In addition, MightySat offers a Bluetooth wireless interface to the Masimo Personal Health and Apple Health App to track, trend, and communicate measurements. MightySat is increasingly being used by elite athletes and teams to assess and improve performance.

"The addition of respiration rate to the MightySat is a game changer because we can now quantify breathing - a fundamental indicator of health, wellness, and sports performance," stated Olympic Silver Medalist Dotsie Bausch.

"Sometimes matches are won by a few points, and I need every breath to count," said Coco Vandeweghe, Professional Tennis Player on the WTA Tour. "MightySat makes breath tracking easier."

"We believe the MightySat will help transform the wearables market by providing fitness enthusiasts with the same valuable personal data that to date has only been available to elite athletes," said Joe Kiani, Chairman and CEO of Masimo.

"Helping athletes to improve their overall performance ecosystem is what I do," stated Tim DiFrancesco, PT, DPT, ATC, CSCS, Head Strength and Conditioning Coach for the Los Angeles Lakers. "That requires gaining insight into the well-being of the person as well as the physiology within the person. Many objective monitoring tools fail to provide accurate and valuable information in a swift and noninvasive manner, but MightySat succeeds. After incorporating MightySat into my athlete monitoring toolbox, I see an impressive list of potential value through quantifying and measuring markers that give a more granular look at athlete readiness, fatigue/overtraining, fuel source utilization, and cardiovascular conditioning."

This year at the Sands Expo in Las Vegas, attendees can visit Masimo at CES booth 73710 and observe MightySat measurements before and after a live audience cycling competition. Cycling participants will be aided by two experts, Stig Severinsen and Dotsie Bausch. Stig is a four-time World Champion freediver and holds multiple Guinness World Records, including history's longest breath-hold, of 22 minutes. Dotsie is a seven-time USA Cycling National Champion, two-time Pan-American Champion, and silver medalist in team pursuit cycling at the 2012 London Olympics. Both Stig and Dotsie will also be available in the booth to answer questions about how they have incorporated MightySat into their health and fitness routines.

MightySat is available for purchase on Amazon U.S. and Amazon U.K. MightySat with Respiration Rate will be available for purchase by the end of February 2016.
