Congenital heart disease (CHD) is the most common birth defect and it is estimated that nearly one out of every 100 babies is born with CHD. It has been reported that around 78,000 infants die because of congenital heart disease in India every year.1 Critical congenital heart disease (CCHD), defined as CHD causing death or requiring invasive intervention in the neonatal period, occurs in one to two newborns per 1,000 live births.2

“We evaluated several monitors before selecting Masimo’s superior SET® technology for all 16 Cloudnine Hospitals,” said Dr. Kishore Kumar, Chairman and Senior Neonatologist, Cloudnine Hospitals. “Masimo SET® will enhance our existing protocols to provide superior screening and ensure that every baby born here now has the opportunity to live a healthy life. Our hope is that universal CCHD screening become mandatory for every child born in India.”

“Early detection is key in this fragile patient population,” said Joe Kiani, Founder and CEO of Masimo. “It’s exciting to see the adoption of CCHD screening in India. Cloudnine’s hospitals have the best in class morbidity and mortality outcomes in the country – 0% maternal mortality and a 99.83% survival rate for babies. When we developed SET®, we didn’t realize how many wonderful new applications our Measure-Through Motion and Low Perfusion™ technology would make possible – so it’s especially gratifying that we can help clinicians around the world save the lives of so many babies.”

In a study of newborns, researchers have found CCHD was detected 63% of the time by standard screening and 83% of the time when screening with Masimo SET® was added.3 Over 100 million patients are monitored with Masimo SET® pulse oximeters around the world and in more than 100 comparative studies Masimo SET® outperformed other technologies.4,5 Researchers have found that Masimo SET® in combination with changes in clinical practice led to an increase of 31% in the detection of newborns with CCHD when used as a part of the CCHD screening protocol.3

Cloudnine hospitals are also the first in the country to make a formal patient safety commitment to the World Patient Safety Movement Foundation. This non-profit organization is dedicated to eradicating preventable patient deaths in hospitals around the world. With this step, Cloudnine joins an elite group of over 1200 hospitals worldwide that have made public commitments to implementing Actionable Patient Safety Solutions in their respective organizations.
