The statement notes in part that “The use of non-invasive continuous haemoglobin monitoring devices instead of phlebotomy may reduce blood loss, pain and discomfort for the patient, but concerns about precision limit routine clinical use. Although the debate focuses on accuracy of a single check, the reliability of non-invasive haemoglobin monitoring devices for dynamic changes over time may permit detection of occult bleeding and response to therapy.”
In addition to this newest consensus statement, SpHb has recently
received positive recognition from two other reputable institutions in
the European anesthesiology community. Both the 2017
SpHb is available on a variety of Masimo noninvasive spot-check and
continuous monitoring devices, both portable and bedside, as well as
through licensed third-party devices. For continuous monitoring, these
include Masimo’s Rad-97™, Radical-7®, and Radius-7®.
Noninvasive and continuous hemoglobin (SpHb) monitoring helps automate
the patient’s hemoglobin status and provides real-time visibility to
changes – or lack of changes – in hemoglobin between invasive blood
samples. For spot-check SpHb measurement,

SpHb monitoring is not intended to replace laboratory blood testing. Clinical decisions regarding red blood cell transfusions should be based on the clinician’s judgment considering, among other factors: patient condition, continuous SpHb monitoring, and laboratory diagnostic tests using blood samples.
Masimo (NASDAQ: MASI) is a global leader in innovative noninvasive
monitoring technologies. Our mission is to improve patient outcomes and
reduce the cost of care. In 1995, the company debuted Masimo SET®
Measure-through Motion and Low Perfusion™ pulse oximetry, which has been
shown in multiple studies to significantly reduce false alarms and
accurately monitor for true alarms. Masimo SET® has also been
shown to help clinicians reduce severe retinopathy of prematurity in
neonates,8 improve CCHD screening in newborns,9
and, when used for continuous monitoring with Masimo Patient SafetyNet™
in post-surgical wards, reduce rapid response activations and costs.10-12
Masimo SET® is estimated to be used on more than 100 million
patients in leading hospitals and other healthcare settings around the
world,13 and is the primary pulse oximetry at 9 of the top 10
hospitals listed in the 2018-19
