“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.
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

About Manipal Hospitals
As a pioneer in healthcare, Manipal Hospitals is among the largest
hospital networks in
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 by taking noninvasive monitoring to new sites and applications. 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. The benefits of Masimo SET® have been proven in more than 100 independent and objective studies and it is estimated to be used on more than 100 million patients in leading hospitals and other healthcare settings around the world. 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 more recently, Pleth Variability Index (PVI®) and Oxygen Reserve Index (ORI™), in addition to SpO2, pulse rate, and perfusion index (PI). In 2014, Masimo introduced Root®, an intuitive open architecture patient monitoring and connectivity platform designed to speed the pace of innovation and reduce the cost of care. Masimo is also taking an active leadership role in mHealth with products such as the Radius-7™ wearable patient monitor and the MightySat™ fingertip pulse oximeter.
