Masimo Announces CE Marking of Respiration Rate Measurement on MightySat™ Rx
Masimo (NASDAQ: MASI) announced today the CE marking of the measurement of respiration rate from the pleth (RRpTM) on the MightySat™ Rx fingertip pulse oximeter. MightySat Rx is a noninvasive device that measures and displays functional oxygen saturation (SpO2), Pulse Rate (PR) and Perfusion Index (PI) with the option to add Pleth Variability Index (PVi®) and now, RRp.

Respiration rate, or the number of breaths taken per minute, typically requires manually counting breaths with a timer and then converting to a per minute rate, or being fitted with chest leads or straps that can be inconvenient. With the addition of RRp to MightySat Rx, respiration rate can conveniently be measured using the same fingertip sensor that measures SpO2, PR, PI, and PVi (a measurement of the dynamic changes in PI that occur during the respiratory cycle). RRp is measured only when the respiratory movement-induced signal is present in the pulsatile waveform and may not be available during certain conditions, such as very irregular breathing and excessive movement.
MightySat Rx is indicated for use with both adult and pediatric patients during both no motion and motion conditions, who are well or poorly perfused, in hospitals, hospital-type facilities, mobile, and home environments. It offers a Bluetooth wireless interface to the Masimo Professional Health mobile application to track, trend, and communicate measurements. MightySat Rx features the same Measure-through Motion and Low Perfusion™ SET® pulse oximetry available in a variety of bedside Masimo and OEM monitors. Masimo SET® addresses the challenges of low perfusion and motion artifact that limit conventional pulse oximetry by harnessing the power of adaptive filters to reduce measurement inaccuracy. Infection control issues aside, Masimo SET® performance benefits are maximized by choosing the correct sensor type for the applicable use scenario: adhesive sensors for continuous monitoring, reusable cabled sensors for short-term monitoring and MightySat Rx fingertip oximeters for spot-checks on those who are not moving excessively and do not have very poor perfusion. Masimo SET® helps clinicians monitor oxygen saturation and pulse rate during motion and low perfusion for more than 100 million patients a year1 and is the primary pulse oximetry at top hospitals, including 9 of the top 10 hospitals listed in the 2016-17 U.S. News and World Report Best Hospitals Honor Roll.2
“MightySat Rx is our smallest, most compact pulse oximeter, and as such is particularly versatile, offering the convenience of portability,” stated Joe Kiani, Chairman and CEO of Masimo. “We are happy to be able to increase its capability with the addition of RRp, and to continue innovating in the field of mobile monitoring devices for the professional caregiver market.”
RRp does not have 510(k) clearance and is not available in the U.S.

- Estimate: Masimo data on file.
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® has also been shown to helps clinicians reduce severe retinopathy of prematurity in neonates,1 improve CCHD screening in newborns,2 and, when used for continuous monitoring in post-surgical wards, reduce rapid response activations and costs.3,4,5 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). Studies with SpHb have shown reductions in unnecessary blood transfusion*,6,7 and when used with PVi, reductions in length of hospital stay8 and 30- and 90-day mortality.9 In 2014, Masimo introduced Root®, an intuitive patient monitoring and connectivity platform with the Masimo Open Connect™ (MOC-9™) interface, enabling other companies to augment Root with new features and measurement capabilities. Masimo is also taking an active leadership role in mHealth with products such as the Radius-7™ wearable patient monitor, iSpO2 ® pulse oximeter for smartphones, and the MightySat™ fingertip pulse oximeter. Additional information about Masimo and its products may be found at www.masimo.com. All published clinical studies on Masimo products can be found at http://www.masimo.com/cpub/clinical-evidence.htm.
*Clinical decisions regarding red blood cell transfusions should be based on the clinician’s judgment considering, among other factors: patient condition, continuous SpHb monitoring, and laboratory diagnostic tests using blood samples.

GSMA and AIC Encourage Greater Engagement among RCEP Countries to Enable a Truly Pan-Asian Digital Economy18.10.2017 07:00 | Pressemelding
The GSMA and the Asia Internet Coalition (AIC) today urged the participating countries of the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP) for greater commitment and engagement. As representatives of leading companies that operate in the region and promote the digital economy, the GSMA and AIC believe that the RCEP can play a critical role in enabling positive policy development in the digital economy and reducing or removing barriers and restrictions that suppress digital trade and investments in the Asia Pacific region. “The RCEP will play an increasingly important role in the region’s digital future, as it involves all of the largest Asian economies, including both ASEAN and non-ASEAN nations,” said Alasdair Grant, head of Asia Pacific for the GSMA. “This is even more critical in light of the stalled talks on the Trans-Pacific Partnership, as well as the growing need for innov
