New Clinical Study Shows Masimo PVI® Helps Clinicians Optimize Fluid Administration in Patients Under Combined General and Epidural Anesthesia

Irvine, California – April 7, 2014Masimo (NASDAQ: MASI) announced today a recent study in the Journal of Monitoring and Computing demonstrates that Masimo's noninvasive PVI® parameter can help clinicians optimize fluid management and reduce unnecessary fluid administration for abdominal surgical patients under combined general and epidural anesthesia.1

Combining general and epidural anesthesia reduces the need for general anesthetics and can reduce risks of respiratory complications and time of stay in hospitals, but the occurrence and severity of hypotension (low blood pressure) are higher compared to general anesthesia alone without proper fluid management.2-4 Too little fluid administration can result in low perfusion in peripheral tissue, but too much fluid administration can result in fluid overload postoperatively.5,6 Traditional management approaches to guide fluid administration including central venous pressure (CVP) monitoring are not considered reliable.7 Instead of so-called "static" parameters such as CVP, experts recommend the use of "dynamic" parameters that measure variations over the respiratory cycle. Multiple dynamic parameters have been shown to help clinicians predict fluid responsiveness and improve fluid management, but most dynamic parameters require invasive and/or complex methods. In contrast, PVI is noninvasive and easily obtained with any Masimo SET® or rainbow® sensor. PVI provides clinicians with a continuous, easy-to-use, and cost-effective measure for assessing whether patients will benefit from fluid administration – enabling personalized and goal-directed fluid therapy.8-12

In the study conducted at Shanghai First People's Hospital in Shanghai, China, Yinan Yu, M.D., and a team of researchers assessed the impact of PVI as a goal-directed fluid parameter on tissue perfusion for 30 patients who underwent elective abdominal surgery while administered combined general and epidural anesthesia (GEN-EPI). Investigators used a Masimo Radical-7 rainbow SET Pulse CO-Oximeter®, which automatically calculated and displayed PVI.

The total average amount of fluid infused in PVI-guided fluid therapy group was significantly lower than the amount of fluid in the control group (1,918 ± 437 mL vs. 2,327 ± 463 mL, P < 0.05). The total amount of crystalloid fluid received in the PVI group also was greatly less than that of the control group (1,355 ± 383 mL vs. 1,715 ± 406 mL, P < 0.05). Moreover, there were significantly lower blood lactate levels during the first hour of the surgery between the PVI group (0.81 ± 0.30 mmol//L) and the control group (1.18 ± 0.32 mmol/L), P < 0.05.

The researchers noted that higher blood lactate levels in the perioperative period recently have been shown to be related with postoperative complications and the average hospitalization time.13

The researchers concluded: "PVI-based goal-directed fluid management in major abdominal surgery patients under GEN–EPI can reduce the amount of fluids administration, especially the crystalloid administration, and the blood lactate levels during surgery. Furthermore, the first hour following GEN–EPI is the critical period for anesthesiologists to optimize the fluid therapy."

Steve Barker, M.D., Ph.D., Chairman of the Scientific Advisory Board of Masimo, stated: "This study demonstrates the clinical advantage of PVI in optimizing fluid management and reducing unnecessary fluid administration for a significant population of patients, and adds to the growing body of evidence that shows how PVI – by aiding clinicians in understanding fluid levels of their patients – can improve patient outcomes while helping to reduce costs."

Flagler Hospital Upgrades to Masimo SET® Pulse Oximetry for Improved Patient Outcomes

St. Augustine, Florida & Irvine, California – March 6, 2014Masimo (NASDAQ: MASI) today announced that Flagler Hospital – ranked among the top 5% of all hospitals in the nation for both clinical excellence and patient safety for the past eight consecutive years – has upgraded system-wide to Masimo SET® pulse oximetry, the standard-of-care at leading hospitals around the world.

Flagler Hospital joins a growing and distinguished roster of health organizations using Masimo SET® pulse oximetry, clinically shown to virtually eliminate false alarms1 and help clinicians detect life-threatening events.2 Flagler Hospital's standardization to Masimo SET® pulse oximetry is in keeping with the healthcare organization's dedication to excellence in care and delivering the best possible results for its patients.

"Since Flagler Hospital began using Masimo pulse oximeters, we have seen quite a difference in the level of performance," said Jim Clifton, BioMed Supervisor at Flagler Hospital. "We have far fewer nuisance alarms than before, and we are able to obtain accurate readings, even when patients are moving or have low perfusion."

The performance of Masimo SET® pulse oximetry is proven by more than 100 independent and objective studies and thousands of clinical evaluations. Masimo SET® is trusted by clinicians to safely monitor more than 100 million patients each year and is used hospital-wide by eight of the top 10 hospitals on the U.S. News & World Report Best Hospitals Honor Roll (2013-2014). Compared to other pulse oximeters, during patient motion and low perfusion, Masimo SET® provides measurements when other pulse oximeters cannot, dramatically reduces false alarms (specificity), and accurately detects true alarms (sensitivity)1 that can indicate a deteriorating patient. Most important, Masimo SET® pulse oximetry has been shown to improve patient outcomes by helping clinicians reduce retinopathy of prematurity (ROP)3 in neonates, screen newborns for critical congenital heart disease (CCHD),4,5 reduce ventilator weaning time and arterial blood gas measurements in the ICU,6 and save lives and costs while reducing rapid response activations and intensive care unit transfers on the general floor.7

"We are honored to partner with Flagler Hospital, which has a well-deserved reputation for having patient empathy and providing quality care," said Masimo Founder and CEO Joe Kiani. "We also appreciate and share Flagler Hospital's commitment to excellence and look forward to helping this great hospital and staff meet and exceed their patient-care needs."

North Oaks Medical Center Is First to Integrate Masimo Patient SafetyNet™ with EPIC Electronic Medical Record System

Hammond, Louisiana & Irvine, California – February 25, 2014Masimo (NASDAQ: MASI) and North Oaks Medical Center – the 330-bed flagship of North Oaks Health System – today announced that the facility has gone live with a two-way interface between its EPIC electronic medical record and the Masimo Patient SafetyNet™ remote monitoring and clinician notification system.

The installation marks the first time a hospital has integrated Patient SafetyNet with the Epic electronic medical record (EMR) system. This integration supports the hospital's efforts to achieve Meaningful Use objectives while simplifying nursing workflow, and enabling near real-time availability of patient data within the Epic EMR, supporting clinical decision making processes and eliminating errors associated with manual charting.

Patient SafetyNet incorporates the Masimo Adaptive Connectivity Engine™ (ACE), which enables two-way, HL7-based connectivity to the EMR. ACE significantly reduces the time and complexity to integrate and validate custom HL7 implementations. Patient SafetyNet has been clinically shown to keep patients safer by enabling remote continuous monitoring of the patient's physiology, including oxygenation and pulse rate, which has led to saved lives, reductions in rapid response activations and transfers to intensive care units.1

Integrating Patient SafetyNet with the EMR achieves the type of medical technology interoperability – the ability of medical devices and health care systems to seamlessly communicate and exchange information – called for by leading health organizations to improve patient outcomes and reduce costs.

"We are excited to have integrated Masimo with our electronic health record and look forward to using Patient SafetyNet as another tool to assist in patient care," explains Herbert Robinson, MD, North Oaks Health System's Chief Medical Information/Informatics Officer.

"Medical device interoperability is a key component to improving clinical decision making, patient safety, and clinician workflow. Unfortunately many technical and corporate barriers can make achieving interoperability challenging for hospitals," said Joe Kiani founder and CEO of Masimo.

"Our goal is to eliminate these barriers, and the Adaptive Connective Engine demonstrates Masimo's commitment to innovation that automates patient care with open, scalable, and standards-based connectivity architecture. We are excited to have partnered with North Oaks Medical Center to achieve the integration of the Patient SafetyNet system with their Epic EMR, and to support them in achieving their interoperability goals."

Masimo Unveils iSpO2® Pulse Oximeter for Android™

Irvine, California – February 20, 2014Masimo (NASDAQ: MASI) today announced that its award-winning iSpO2® pulse oximeter is now available for Android™, along with the companion iSpO2 app downloaded from the Google Play™ Store. With the release of iSpO2 in the popular Android operating system, more consumers than ever now have access to Masimo SET® Measure-through Motion and Low Perfusion™ pulse oximetry – the same technology used in leading hospitals worldwide.


iSpO2® for Android provides oxygen saturation (SpO2), pulse rate (PR), and perfusion index (PI).

iSpO2 provides accurate, real-time oxygen saturation (SpO2), pulse rate (PR), and perfusion index (PI) readings – ideal for anyone who desires access to accurate health data through their mobile devices.

Stig Severinsen, Ph.D. in medicine, a four-time World Champion freediver and owner of multiple Guinness World Records, including history's longest breath-hold of 22 minutes, uses iSpO2 as part of his regimen.

"Training for extreme records under extreme conditions is always a huge challenge," Severinsen said. "In such situations it is of great value to be able to perform noninvasive and accurate measurements of my heart rate and oxygen levels with a state-of-the-art device. Masimo has created a clever device that not only displays your measurements in real time – even during motion and states of low perfusion in cold conditions – but it also allows you to store and share data with people in your team.

"I would recommend Masimo's iSpO2 to anyone interested in health and fitness – understanding what goes on inside your body is paramount to improving performance," he added.

Dr. Mark Hom, M.D., co-author of forthcoming exercise books with three-time Tour de France champion Greg LeMond, and Dr. Glenn A. Gaesser, Ph.D., said: "Although we advocate intense training, we don't recommend that healthy athletes train to the point of oxygen desaturation (i.e., cyanosis). However, our preliminary testing with the iSpO2 has shown that it has the accuracy and repeatability to show subtle changes in athletic oxygenation: specifically in warm-up, steady state, super high intensity, and recovery. And as an added benefit, the iSpO2 is compact enough to be useful when training on the road or track"

"This pulse oximeter is without a doubt the best one available for the consumer market," said Dr. Kirk Shelley, M.D., PhD, professor of anesthesiology at Yale University in New Haven, Conn. "Masimo uses impressive digital signal processing combined with proprietary light emitting diode (LED) technology. If you need a serious pulse oximeter, this is the one to get."

iSpO2 – extremely lightweight at just 232 grams or about 0.5 pounds – also displays the pleth waveform and Signal IQ™ so users can visually assess where the pulse is occurring and the quality of the measurement even during motion artifact. iSpO2 can also trend, store, and email up to 12 hours of measurement history in the global standard, .CSV file format, allowing consumers to easily share data through their mobile device email application.

The performance of Masimo SET® pulse oximetry is proven by more than 100 independent and objective studies and thousands of clinical evaluations to accurately monitor blood oxygen saturation even in the most challenging conditions, including patient movement and low peripheral perfusion. The pulse oximetry standard-of-care at leading hospitals worldwide – including by eight of the top 10 hospitals on the U.S. News & World Report Best Hospitals Honor Roll (2013-2014) – Masimo SET® virtually eliminates false alarms1 and increases a clinician's ability to detect life-threatening events.2

Masimo Announces CE Marking of O3™ Regional Oximetry

Study Presented at Society of Technology in Anesthesia Annual Meeting Demonstrates 4.0% Absolute Accuracy and 2.1% Trend Accuracy

Irvine, California – January 23, 2014Masimo (NASDAQ: MASI) announced today the CE Marking of O3™ regional oximetry for the Root™ patient monitoring and connectivity platform. O3 regional oximetry is a new technology developed by Masimo and uses near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) in a Masimo Open Connect (MOC-9™) module with up to two sensors per MOC-9 module. Each sensor contains four light-emitting diodes (LEDs) and two detectors to continuously and simultaneously measure both tissue oxygen saturation (rSO2) and arterial blood oxygenation (SpO2). Root allows either one or two O3 MOC-9 modules to be connected, enabling monitoring with as few as one and as many as four sensors.


Masimo O3™ regional oximetry MOC-9 module for the Root™ patient monitoring and connectivity platform.

Regional oximetry, also referred to as tissue oximetry and cerebral oximetry, enables the continuous assessment of the oxygenation of the tissue beneath the sensor. O3 helps clinicians detect regional hypoxemia that pulse oximetry alone can miss. In addition, the onboard pulse oximetry capability in O3 sensors can automate the differential analysis of regional to central oxygen saturation. O3 monitoring is as simple as applying O3 regional oximetry sensors to the forehead and connecting the O3 MOC-9 module to any Root through one of its three MOC-9 ports. Root offers multiple unprecedented, high-impact innovations including:

  • Radical-7® with Masimo's breakthrough rainbow® and SET® measurements
  • Instantly interpretable, high visibility, intuitive-navigation touchscreen display
  • MOC-9 flexible measurement expansion with SedLine® EEG brain function monitoring and Phasein™ capnography, in addition to O3 regional oximetry and future measurements
  • Iris™ for built-in connectivity gateway for standalone devices such as IV pumps, ventilators, hospital beds, and other patient monitors
  • MyView™ for automatic display of parameters, waveforms, and viewing configuration based on the clinician's preference and presence


Masimo O3 sensors enable simultaneous measurement of regional oxygen saturation (rSO2) and arterial oxygen saturation (SpO2).

In an abstract presented at the Society for Technology in Anesthesia 2014 Annual Meeting in Orlando, Fla., Dr. Daniel Redford from the University of Arizona evaluated cerebral oxygen saturation on 23 subjects and 202 paired measurements of rSO2 from O3 regional oximetry and reference arterial and venous blood samples (SavO2).1 Reference blood samples were taken from both an arterial cannula placed in the radial artery and a catheter placed in the internal jugular bulb vein, obtained at baseline and after a series of increasingly hypoxic states. O3 regional oximetry had an absolute accuracy of 4.0% and trend accuracy of 2.1%.

"Masimo O3 regional oximetry will have the unique ability to measure both rSO2 and Masimo SET® SpO2 pulse oximetry simultaneously from the same forehead sensor," said Dr. Michael Ramsay, M.D., Chief of the Department of Anesthesiology and Pain Management at Baylor University Medical Center in Dallas. "This may provide the anesthesiologist or perfusionist for the first time with a differential analysis of regional to central oxygen saturation monitoring that could help the clinician in maintaining brain oxygenation and safe cerebral perfusion during cardiac procedures."

O3 regional oximetry is currently intended for use in subjects larger than 40 kg (88 lbs) and has not yet received FDA 510(k) clearance.

Joe Kiani, CEO and Founder of Masimo, said, "O3 regional oximetry delivers again on Masimo's mission to improve patient outcomes and reduce cost of care by taking noninvasive monitoring to new sites and applications. We look forward to partnering with key hospitals around the world to demonstrate O3's technical and clinical advantages."

Masimo Brings High Technology Medical Equipment to India

Expands Presence with Advanced Noninvasive Patient Monitoring

Bangalore, India & Irvine, California – January 7, 2014Masimo (NASDAQ: MASI), the inventor of breakthrough noninvasive patient monitoring technologies, today announced the opening of offices across India to meet the health demands of the burgeoning Indian market.

Masimo, a successful, publicly traded medical technology company employing more than 3,000 people worldwide with product revenues that have steadily increased in the last five years, has technology license and OEM agreements with leading patient monitoring manufacturers spanning the globe, including Atom, Datascope, GE Medical, Medtronic, Philips, Spacelabs, and Zoll.

"We have found that India is a an important market for several reasons – the most important is that the penetration of high technology devices is very low, a factor that could lead to thousands of avoidable instances of death and illness. As a leader in noninvasive patient monitoring, including measure through motion and low perfusion pulse oximetry, Masimo's technologies will be able to make a significant impact to improve patient safety and outcomes," said Jon Coleman, President, Masimo Worldwide Sales, Professional Services and Medical Affairs.

Masimo is working with India's top medical and nursing practitioners to raise greater awareness of the clinical and cost challenges that Masimo's innovative technologies can solve, including:

  • Masimo SET® Measure-through Motion and Low Perfusion™ pulse oximetry. Compared to other pulse oximeters during patient motion and low perfusion, Masimo SET® provides measurements when other pulse oximeters cannot, dramatically reduces false alarms (specificity), and accurately detects true alarms (sensitivity)1,2 that can indicate a deteriorating patient. Most importantly, Masimo SET® pulse oximetry has been shown to improve patient outcomes by helping clinicians reduce retinopathy of prematurity (ROP)3 in neonates, screen newborns for critical congenital heart disease (CCHD),4,5 reduce ventilator weaning time and arterial blood gas measurements in the ICU,6 and save lives and costs while reducing rapid response activations and intensive care unit transfers on the general floor.2
  • rainbow® Pulse CO-Oximetry™, which allows clinicians to noninvasively monitor multiple blood constituents, such as
  • Total hemoglobin (SpHb®), when used in conjunction with laboratory testing, SpHb monitoring can help clinicians reduce unnecessary blood transfusions in both low and high blood-loss surgery situations, and also helps initiate more timely transfusions when they are truly indicated7,8;
  • Carboxyhemoglobin (SpCO®), shown to be useful as a first-line assessment tool in helping clinicians rapidly detect carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning9;
  • Methemoglobin (SpMet®), shown to help clinicians assess for methemoglobinemia10 – a dangerous reaction to some hospital-administered drugs that reduces the delivery of oxygen to the tissues. Other breakthrough technologies include:
  • RAM™ acoustic respiration rate (RRa™), which 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, and shown to be as effective as capnography (nasal cannula) and better tolerated by patients11;
  • Root™, a powerful new patient monitoring and connectivity platform that integrates breakthrough rainbow® and SET® measurements with multiple additional parameters—including SedLine® brain function monitoring and Phasein™ capnography and gas monitoring.* Root includes a dock for the Radical-7® handheld Pulse CO-Oximeter and acoustic respiration rate monitor, an instantly interpretable display, and multiple networking/connectivity options. Root integrates multiple streams of data and simplifies patient care workflows, empowering caregivers to help make quicker patient assessments, earlier interventions, and better clinical decisions; and
  • Masimo Patient SafetyNet™, a remote monitoring and clinician notification system clinically shown to keep patients safer by enabling remote continuous monitoring of the patient's physiology, including oxygenation and pulse rate, which has led to saved lives, reductions in rapid response activations and transfers to intensive care units.12

Local response from the clinical community has been overwhelming.

"I've been using Masimo technology for the last three years or so and am very happy to hear about Masimo's commitment to the region," said Dr. Anil Karlekar, executive director and head of anesthesiology and critical care at Fortis Escorts Heart Institute in New Delhi. "I look forward to closer collaboration with the Masimo India team."

"I have found that Masimo's technology is best in picking up SpO2 in compromised babies, particularly when very sick," said Dr. Ashish Mehta of Arpan Nursing Home, in Ahemdabad, where he and his team focus on pre-term newborns and care for more than 600 babies a year. "I rely on this technology in my clinic and am very happy to learn that Masimo is now in India and better poised to serve its local clients."

"I'm glad to learn that Masimo has arrived in India through its own sales and clinical team," added Dr. Kartik Nagesh, head of neonatology at Manipal Hospital in Bangalore. "We have been using Masimo technology in our NICU for some years and now with a local presence we are more confident about our ability to improve quality of care to our neonatal patients."
