Two New Clinical Studies Using Masimo Technologies Presented at the American Society of Anesthesiologists Annual Meeting
Masimo (NASDAQ: MASI) announced today that two new studies using Masimo technologies were presented at the American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA) annual meeting in San Diego, California, October 24-28. The conference is the largest gathering of anesthesiologists in the world.
Study Evaluating the EMMA Portable Capnometer in Children Under General Anesthesia
Carbon dioxide levels in the blood reflect the degree of gas exchange occurring in the lungs and provide a critical indictor of cardio-respiratory function that aids in the assessment of the adequacy of ventilation. In a study of 13 children (average age 18 months) undergoing surgery, Dr. Yuko Nawa and colleagues from the Hokkaido Medical Center for Child Health and Rehabilitation in Sapporo, Japan, compared the end tidal carbon dioxide values (EtCO2) from the Masimo EMMA portable capnometer and traditional sidestream capnography (GE Patient Monitor).¹ Compared to sidestream capnography, the EMMA had 95% limits of agreement of -1.3 to 2.5 mm Hg, leading the investigators to conclude that the EMMA has “good correlation with sidestream type capnometer in children” and “may be useful for general anesthesia in out-of-operating room or in case of cardiopulmonary resuscitation, bedside respiratory care and patient transportation.”
Study Evaluating Pleth Variability Index in Spontaneously Breathing Adults During Regional Anesthesia
Dexmedetomidine is an intravenous drug used to sedate patients during surgery which can also cause hypertension or hypotension that may increase patient risk. In a study of 42 spontaneously breathing patients under regional anesthesia,2 Dr. Makoto Sato and colleagues from Asahikawa Medical University in Hoikkado, Japan evaluated the association of baseline pleth variability index (PVI) from Masimo SET® pulse oximetry and dexmedetomidine-induced changes in blood pressure. A baseline PVI≤15 had a 94% sensitivity, 85% specificity, and area under the curve (AUC) of 0.93 (p=0.00002) for resulting hypertension. A baseline PVI≥16 had an 83% sensitivity, 64% specificity, and area under the curve (AUC) of 0.79 (p=0.0008) for resulting hypotension. The investigators concluded, “PVI can predict dexmedetomidine-induced changes in blood pressure in spontaneously breathing patients.”

Masimo (NASDAQ: MASI) is the 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. The benefits of Masimo SET® have been proven in more than 100 independent and objective studies and it 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 Pleth Variability Index (PVI®), in addition to SpO2, pulse rate, and perfusion index (PI). For the U.S. market, PVI is a measure of dynamic changes in the perfusion index (PI) that occur during the respiratory cycle. The PVI calculation is accomplished by measuring changes in PI over a time interval where one or more complete respiratory cycles have occurred. PVI is displayed as a percent (0-100%). PVI may show changes that reflect physiologic factors such as vascular tone, circulating blood volume and intrathoracic pressure excursions. The utility of PVI is unknown at this time and requires further clinical studies. Technical factors that may affect PVI include probe malposition and patient motion. The indications for EMMA include the following: 1) The EMMA Emergency Capnometer Monitor measures, displays and monitors carbon dioxide concentration and respiratory rate during anesthesia, recovery and respiratory care. It may be used in the operating suite, intensive care unit, patient room, clinic, emergency medicine and emergency transport settings for adult, pediatric and infant patients. 2) The EMMA Emergency Capnometer Analyzer measures and displays carbon dioxide concentration and respiratory rate during anesthesia, recovery and respiratory care. It may be used in the operating suite, intensive care unit, patient room, clinic, emergency medicine and emergency transport settings for adult, pediatric and infant patients.
