LNOP® Adhesive Sensors
LNOP Durable Adhesive sensors have the following advantages that help to reduce costs:
The tape material used in Masimo LNOP adhesive sensors is much more durable than other available sensors. The result is a sensor that can be moved and reapplied multiple times during a patient's stay.
- Rejuvenation Feature
The adhesive used in the Masimo LNOP sensors has a unique rejuvenation feature. Using 70% isopropyl alcohol, the adhesive can be rejuvenated and the stickiness restored.1
- Increased Sensor Longevity
Longevity studies have been conducted and the results show a nearly two-fold increase in durability with Masimo LNOP sensors compared to competitive disposable sensors.
- Increasing Performance
Masimo LNOP sensors are uniquely designed to reduce interference from physiologic and non-physiologic noise. Unlike conventional pulse oximetry sensor design, the photodetector is recessed in a cavity that protects it from ambient light interference. The sensors are also designed to decrease the effects of electro-magnetic interference.
- 1 Adtx and Pdtx cannot be rejuvenated.
Masimo Adhesive Sensors Improve Performance While Reducing Cost
- Adhesive sensors have always had clinical advantages over reusable 'finger clip' sensors, which have made them the optimal clinical choice of caregivers.
- The risk of cross contamination is less likely from single-patient use adhesive sensors than from reusable sensors.
- For patients who are active or agitated, it is more difficult to shake off an adhesive sensor, thereby making monitoring in high motion environments more effective.
- Compared to reusable sensors, adhesive sensors, which decrease pressure on the monitoring site, are less prone to cause pressure necrosis.
