Masimo Announces CE Mark of iSpO2(TM) Rx Pulse Oximeter for Mobile Devices

IRVINE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/29/14 -- Masimo (NASDAQ: MASI) today announced that the iSpO2 ™ Rx Pulse Oximeter for Android™ and iOS devices has received CE Mark clearance for medical use in select countries, offering clinicians the power of Masimo SET® Measure-through Motion and Low Perfusion™ Pulse Oximetry on their smart phones and tablets.

iSpO2 Rx, available outside the U.S., provides accurate spot-check and short-term assessment of oxygen saturation (SpO2), pulse rate (PR), and perfusion index (PI). iSpO2 Rx is ideal for:

EMS, clinicians

  • Emergency clinicians who want the convenience and availability of pulse oximetry at times when other Masimo handheld oximetry solutions may not be available.

Traveling respiratory therapists and physicians

  • For those on the go who require convenient and portable solutions.

COPD patients

  • Patients under the care of a physician for chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases (COPD) such as emphysema, chronic bronchitis, and bronchiectasis, may benefit from the use of a pulse oximeter for spot checks.

Asthmatics

  • Patients under the care of a physician may use pulse oximetry to assess the severity of their asthma attack to help determine if a doctor or emergency room visit is warranted.

Compact and intuitive operation with a familiar touch-screen interface, iSpO2 Rx comes with an integrated finger pulse oximetry sensor or an optional M-LNCS ™ connector, which allows the iSpO2 Rx to be used with more than 20 Masimo SET® pulse oximetry sensors. iSpO2 Rx utilizes the same Masimo SET® Measure-through Motion and Low Perfusion™ pulse oximetry technology proven by more than 100 independent and objective studies and used on more than 100 million patients a year in leading hospitals worldwide, including eight of the top 10 on the U.S. News & World Report Best Hospitals Honor Roll (2013-2014). Masimo SET® pulse oximetry has been shown to help clinicians reduce ventilator weaning time and arterial blood gas measurements in the ICU,(1) and save lives and costs while reducing rapid response activations and ICU transfers on the general floor.(2)

iSpO2 Rx for select Android devices and iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch, also features a downloadable and upgradeable iSpO2 Rx App, ensuring clinicians have the latest mobile medical technologies at their fingertips at all times. iSpO2 Rx, with real-time display of pleth waveform with signal IQ for low measurement confidence, can store and email up to 12 hours of measurement history in a global standard .CSV file format. iSpO2 Rx with the M-LNCS connector is compatible with Masimo adhesive and reusable sensors for pediatric and adult use.

Available for purchase outside the U.S.

About Masimo
Masimo (NASDAQ: MASI) is the global leader in innovative noninvasive monitoring technologies that significantly improve patient care-helping solve "unsolvable" problems. In 1995, the company debuted Measure-Through Motion and Low Perfusion pulse oximetry, known as Masimo SET®, which virtually eliminated false alarms and increased pulse oximetry's ability to detect life-threatening events. More than 100 independent and objective studies have shown that Masimo SET® outperforms other pulse oximetry technologies, even under the most challenging clinical conditions, including patient motion and low peripheral perfusion. 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 Pleth Variability Index (PVI®), in addition to SpO2, pulse rate, and perfusion index (PI).

Nigeria has the largest economy in Africa, at more than US$500 billion, and ranks 23rd in the world. A recent re-evaluation of Nigeria's true economic size doubled the previous estimate, and brought it well ahead of South Africa, which is a member (unlike Nigeria) of the G20 club for political as well as economic reasons. Nigeria's economy can be said to be quite diverse from one point of view, but heavily dependent on oil and gas at the same time. Oil and natural gas account for about 15% of Nigera's overall economy, but traditionally represent more than 90% of the country's exports and as...
The Internet of Things is a misnomer. That implies that everything is on the Internet, and that simply should not be - especially for things that are blurring the line between medical devices that stimulate like a pacemaker and quantified self-sensors like a pedometer or pulse tracker. The mesh of things that we manage must be segmented into zones of trust for sensing data, transmitting data, receiving command and control administrative changes, and peer-to-peer mesh messaging. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Bagnulo, Solution Architect / Software Engineer at SOA Software, focused on desi...
