Masimo Announces CE Marking for RAS-45 Sensor for rainbow Acoustic Monitoring® of Respiration Rate
This Smart News Release features multimedia. View the full release here: http://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20160818005451/en/
Continuous monitoring of respiration rate is especially important for
post-surgical patients receiving patient-controlled analgesia for pain
RAS-45 is designed to facilitate placement on and improve attachment to the neck, but with a smaller adhesive profile than the RAS-125c. It is flexible and uses a transparent adhesive. Like the RAS-125c, it operates with Masimo MX technology boards to measure RRa and display the acoustic respiration wave form. RAS-45 maintains the same performance parameters, range, and accuracy specifications as RAS-125c. Both sensors are for patients who weigh more than 10 kg.

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.
