MARYLAND HEIGHTS, Mo. & IRVINE, Calif. - Tuesday, September 15th 2015 [ME NewsWire]
(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Masimo (NASDAQ: MASI) today announced that Ranken Jordan Pediatric Bridge Hospital has upgraded their monitors to the Radical-7 featuring Masimo SET® pulse oximetry.
“For children with complex medical conditions such as brain injuries, congenital defects or complications due to premature birth, our hospital specializes in bridging the gap between traditional hospital treatments and going home,” said Laureen K. Tanner, RN, MSN, FACHE, President and Chief Executive Officer of Ranken Jordan Pediatric Bridge Hospital. “Breakthrough medical technology like this helps our team make the impossible possible on a daily basis.”
The Radical-7 features Masimo SET® Measure-through-Motion and Low Perfusion™ pulse oximetry, shown in multiple studies to significantly reduce false alarms and accurately monitor for true alarms.1,2 The benefits of Masimo SET® have been proven in more than 100 independent and objective studies and used on more than 100 million patients in leading hospitals.3,4 Researchers have found that Masimo SET®, in combination with changes in clinical practice, led to a reduction in severe retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) in pre-term infants.5 In a study of newborns, researchers have found critical congenital heart disease (CCHD) was detected 63% of the time by standard screening and 83% of the time when screening with Masimo SET® was added.6 The Radical-7 allows hospitals the ability to upgrade their monitor with other breakthrough measurements that are only available with Masimo rainbow® technology.
“The amazing team at Ranken Jordan Pediatric Bridge Hospital has been taking care of children with complex needs for over 70 years. They are the only pediatric sub acute facility in Missouri and one of the largest in the Midwest,” stated Joe Kiani, Founder and CEO of Masimo. “Performance in challenging situations is key and we are happy that their clinical team now has access to our flagship monitor. It is our privilege to help facilities like Ranken Jordan help kids and families safely transition from the acute care hospital to home.”

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). In the U.S., Masimo rainbow® SET pulse CO-Oximeter instruments and sensors are indicated to provide noninvasive monitoring of arterial oxygen saturation (SpO2) and pulse rate (PR), carboxyhemoglobin saturation (SpCO®), methemoglobin saturation (SpMet®), total hemoglobin concentration (g/dl SpHb), and/or respiration rate (RRa®). The devices are not intended to replace laboratory measurements of hemoglobin and have not been cleared by FDA to detect bleeding or reduce the amount or frequency of red blood cell (RBC) transfusions.
