This Smart News Release features multimedia. View the full release here: http://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20160613005405/en/
O3 regional oximetry uses near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) to
continuously monitor absolute and trended regional tissue oxygen
saturation (rSO2) in the cerebral region. In a study on 27
subjects published in Anesthesia and Analgesia in 2014, Dr.
“O3 regional oximetry delivers again on Masimo's technical prowess and
gives clinicians access to valuable, accurate data about cerebral oxygen
O3 regional oximetry is currently intended for use with adults weighing 40 kg (88 lbs) or greater.

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. Masimo SET® 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 patient monitoring and connectivity platform with the Masimo Open Connect (MOC-9) interface. 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.
