Masimo Announces Continuous Noninvasive Functional Hemodynamic Monitoring With Plethysmograph Variability Index (PVI)

Symposium presentation during the 2007 European Society of Anaesthesia Congress in Munich, Germany cites independent research showing the potential value of this new noninvasive diagnostic tool

Irvine, California June 20, 2007 - Masimo, the inventor of Pulse CO-Oximetry and Read-Through Motion and Low Perfusion pulse oximetry, reported that new independent studies presented at a symposium during the European Society of Anaesthesia in Munich, Germany last week indicated that Masimo's Plethysmograph Variability Index (PVI), a noninvasive measurement that quantifies changes in the plethysmographic waveform derived from pulse oximetry, can provide clinicians with a noninvasive way to monitor functional hemodynamics in their patients.

Clinicians who have evaluated PVI believe this technology will prove to be a valuable clinical tool with significant advantages over currently available indicators of changes in functional hemodynamics that are invasive, operator dependent, often inaccurate, and expensive. PVI displays a numeric representation of the changes to the pleth waveform on the pulse oximeter and allows clinicians to track and trend these changes over time as well as a Diagnostic Plethysmograph that maintains the morphology of the true pleth for clinicians to view.

In his presentation in Munich, Maxime Cannesson, MD from the Claude Bernard University and Louis Pradel Hospital in Lyon, France cited research he co-authored entitled Ability of a Novel Algorithm for Noninvasive Automatic Estimation of the Respiratory Variations in the Pulse Oximeter Waveform to Detect Changes in Ventricular Preload scheduled for publication in the journal Anesthesiology later this year that indicates Masimo's PVI method of quantifying changes in ventricular preload, and therefore the ability of the heart to pump adequate blood to the tissues, correlated well with invasive methods.1

Dr. Cannesson said the authors had demonstrated in an earlier study that a change in the beat to beat amplitude of the oximeter waveform of greater than 15% predicted whether a patient was able to adapt to fluid restoration with an appropriate physiological response.2

Dr. Cannesson said that it was his belief that "Pleth Variability Index can automatically and noninvasively detect changes in ventricular preload in mechanically ventilated patients in the operating room. PVI shows great promise for use in perioperative fluid optimization which will have both clinical and economical impact. Other clinical applications for PVI are in the areas of fluid depletion/restriction, mechanical ventilator settings/adjustments, detection of changes in myocardial contractility."

Other clinicians have concurred with these observations and feel that the ability of Masimo Rainbow SET oximeters to display PVI may provide them with a useful clinical data point in the management of their patients.

Dr. Mitchell Goldstein of Loma Linda University Children's Hospital said "Trending of PVI may be useful in monitoring critical care and surgical patients, both intraoperatively and postoperatively, for appropriate hydration and ventilation status."

Dr. Dan Redford of the University of Arizona, University Medical Center added "PVI may be useful in monitoring surgical patients, for appropriate intravascular volume status. For example, a rising PVI may indicate developing hypovolemia, and a falling PVI post-fluid resuscitation is evidence of an appropriate fluid responsiveness, and important measure in the critical care/OR environment."

About Masimo
Masimo develops innovative monitoring technologies that significantly improve patient care-helping solve "unsolvable" problems. In 1995, the company debuted Read-Through Motion and Low Perfusion pulse oximetry, known as SET and with it virtually eliminated false alarms and increased pulse oximetry's ability to detect life-threatening events. More than 100 independent clinical studies have confirmed that Masimo SET technology allows clinicians to accurately monitor blood oxygen saturation in critical care situations-establishing the technology as the "gold standard" pulse oximetry and substantially contributing to improved patient outcomes. In 2005 Masimo introduced Masimo Rainbow SET Pulse CO-Oximetry, which, for the first time, noninvasively monitors the level of carbon monoxide and methemoglobin in the blood, allowing early detection and treatment of potentially life-threatening conditions. Masimo, founded in 1989, has the mission of "Improving Patient Outcomes and Reducing Cost of Care by Taking Noninvasive Monitoring to New Sites and Applications."

CAREvent Automatic Transport Ventilators

The CAREvent® Automatic Transport Ventilators are lightweight, portable, durable and simple to use, control module style, automatic time/volume cycled ventilators. They are completely pneumatic (no batteries required) and deliver breath by breath consistency in delivered tidal volume, frequency, inspiratory/expiratory times and flow rates. This consistency is not achievable with a bag-valve-mask resuscitator and prevents gastric inflation and high intrathoracic pressure.

Designed primarily for the demands of emergency rescue, resuscitation and critical care patient transports, the CAREvent® ventilators provide functionality normally only found in high end electronic ventilators.

Five models are available to meet the various functionality and budgetary needs. Features available include:

* “Demand Breathing” for the spontaneously breathing patient
* Manual Override Ventilation to supplement automatic ventilations if required and activate delayed cycling when a 30:2 CPR protocol is being performed.
* Flexibility in breath volume and frequency delivery to ventilate patients from 5 kg. to large adults (note ALS+ suitable for patients from 15 kg.)
* CPAP to provide non-invasive treatment for patients with CHF, COPD and PE. This provides one space saving device for oxygen therapy, CPAP treatment, resuscitation and ventilation (ALS+, ATV+ and MRI).
* Auto Cycling Shut-Off and Re-Start to synchronized ventilation for patients moving in and out of respiratory arrest. Note: In the child settings the inspired flow rate of the patient may be insufficient to cause the Automatic Circuit Shut off to function.
* Airway Pressure Gauge to provide visual monitoring of the patient and ventilator settings.
* An Audible and Visual Low Gas Supply Warning.
* Audible and Visual Indicator for a circuit disconnect or when delivered tidal volumes are insufficient (ATV+ and MRI)
* Guideline 2000 and Guideline 2005 Versions Available

The genuine Ambu bag has become even better

The genuine Ambu bag was introduced in Denmark 50 years ago. Dr. Holger Hesse, founder of Ambu, designed it in collaboration with professor Henning Ruben. The double wall concept revolutionized manual resuscitation and changed the way healthcare providers responded to emergency breathing conditions forever.

Immediately recognized as a milestone in emergency medical care, the genuine Ambu bag became an international sensation. Today, genuine Ambu bags are used for manual resuscitation in hospitals, by ambulance services – in fact in all kinds of emergency environments all over the world.

The double wall concept has evolved over the years, and the Mark III generation is still by many considered the best resuscitator in the world. After listening to the needs of critical and emergency respiratory care providers around the world, we have now redesigned the genuine Ambu bag.

The new and improved Mark IV resuscitators are easier to hold, easier to use, completely autoclavable for reuse and even more effective at what Ambu bags have been especially designed to help you do for more than fifty years - keep patients breathing.
