Masimo Announces the Addition of Early Warning Score to the Root® Patient Monitoring and Connectivity Platform

Del

Masimo (NASDAQ: MASI) announced today the limited market release of Early Warning Score (EWS) on the Root® patient monitoring and connectivity platform. EWS aggregates information from multiple vital signs and clinical observations to generate a score that represents the potential degree of patient deterioration.

Root, which works in conjunction with Radical-7® or Radius-7® Pulse CO-Oximeters® and Masimo Open Connect™ (MOC-9™) measurements, features Masimo SET® Measure-through Motion and Low Perfusion™ pulse oximetry, rainbow SET™ pulse CO-Oximetry, Nomoline™ capnography and gas monitoring, SedLine® brain function monitoring, O3™ regional oximetry, and SunTech® blood pressure and Welch Allyn® temperature monitoring. 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 technology 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

Patient data from Radical-7 or Radius-7 and data collected using Root and other connected Masimo and third-party devices can be shared with Masimo Patient SafetyNet™*, providing hospital-wide remote monitoring and clinician notification, as well as the ability to automatically push patient data to a hospital’s Electronic Medical Record (EMR). Each time a clinician pushes data to the EMR via Root connected to Patient SafetyNet, an Early Warning Score (EWS) can now be included. Clinicians can also choose to have the standalone Root perform EWS calculations.

There are several EWS protocols, such as Pediatric Early Warning Score (PEWS), Modified Early Warning Score (MEWS), and National Early Warning Score (NEWS). These various scores require vital signs contributors – such as oxygen saturation, pulse rate, respiration rate, body temperature, and systolic blood pressure – and contributors input by clinicians, such as level of consciousness, use of supplemental oxygen, and urine output. The weighting and number of contributors differ depending upon which EWS protocol is used. Root can be customized for various predefined EWS protocols, or hospitals can configure their own set of required contributors, and their relative weights, to create an EWS unique to their care environment.

Recent peer-reviewed studies, across care areas, have suggested that the use of NEWS may have clinical benefits: Vanamali et al. notes that NEWS is a “useful simple physiological scoring system for assessment and risk management of medical emergency admissions.”3 Smith et al. found that an EWS of 5 or greater after laparotomy is associated with adverse outcomes, while recommending that future studies evaluate the ability of EWS to predict and prevent such outcomes.4

Outside the U.S., as part of the Patient SafetyNet platform, Masimo also offers Halo Index™. Whereas EWS provides a spot-check score using the NEWS standard, Halo Index presents a dynamic, cumulative trending assessment of global patient status as a single displayed number ranging from 0 to 100. Halo Index uses available Masimo parameters from connected monitoring devices, but is scalable to include additional information from the patient data repository. Masimo designed Halo Index to mimic the systematic approach that expert clinicians use in assessing patient physiologic deterioration, analyzing the patient’s history and extracting key vital sign parameter characteristics; increases in a patient’s Halo Index may indicate the need for clinicians to more closely assess the patient.

“Root, from its versatile connectivity options to its advanced patient monitoring, from rainbow® SpHb® to SET® SpO2, has long been helping hospitals improve and automate their patient care. Now, with Early Warning Score, Root can help clinicians stay ahead of the care race and transfer their patient home safely,” said Joe Kiani, Founder and CEO of Masimo.

Root with Early Warning Score (EWS) and Halo Index are not available in the U.S. EWS is a convenient aid to clinical assessment and not a substitute for clinical judgment.

About Masimo

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.

CT-P13 (biosimilar infliximab) is comparable to reference infliximab and adalimumab in highly anticipated real-world study17.2.2018 08:00Pressemelding

Twelve-month data from the Personalised Anti-TNF therapy in Crohn’s disease Study (PANTS) was presented at the 13th Congress of the European Crohn’s and Colitis Organisation (ECCO). The results indicate that the clinical effectiveness, safety and immunogenicity of Celltrion Healthcare’s CT-P13 (biosimilar infliximab) in patients with Crohn’s disease (CD) is comparable to those treated with reference infliximab as well as those treated with adalimumab.1 The UK-wide, three-year prospective observational study investigated primary non-response (PNR), loss of response (LOR) and adverse drug reactions (ADR) to infliximab (reference infliximab and CT-P13) and adalimumab in 1610 CD patients. The data show comparable efficacy between CT-P13, reference infliximab and adalimumab in relation to PNR, LOR and ADR rates. In addition, at week 54, the remission rate was 39.7%, 39.0% and 32.7% for reference infliximab, CT-P13 and adalimumab treated patients, respectively.1 The PANTS study investigates

Another Victory for SPI in Stolichnaya Trademark Dispute16.2.2018 07:01Pressemelding

On February 5, 2018, in Linz, SPI Group achieved yet another significant legal victory in its long-running dispute with Russian state-owned entity Federal Treasury Enterprise Sojuzplodoimport (FKP or FTE) over the ownership of SPI Group’s Stolichnaya and Moskovskaya trademarks. The Appellate Court of Linz ruled in favour of SPI Group, confirming their ownership of both trademarks in Austria. In its decision, the Austrian Appellate Court held that the Dutch interim judgments as well as the later Dutch judgments do not have any binding effect on the Austrian proceedings. The Austrian Court also: rejected the Dutch Courts’ approach that an invalidity of the Russian privatization would not be subject to any limitation period; noted that the approach used by the Dutch Courts’ ignores the fact that the privatization had for many years been considered by all persons involved, including the Russian State, as legal and had been implemented and “lived” as such, until the change of political powe
