Noninvasive & Continuous Hemoglobin Monitor
Mon, 10/13/2008 - 11:21am
Masimo’s noninvasive and continuous total hemoglobin monitoring (SpHb™) may help clinicians quickly detect chronic or acute anemia, identify occult bleeding earlier and more effectively manage blood transfusions. SpHb, along with Masimo SET® SpO2, also allows for noninvasive real-time oxygen content (SpOC™) monitoring, providing a more complete indication of a patient's oxygenation status. As part of the upgradable Masimo Rainbow® SET technology platform, SpHb and SpOC join pleth variability index (PVITM), a new method for noninvasive and automatic assessment of fluid responsiveness, as well as carboxyhemoglobin (SpCO®), methemoglobin (SpMet®) and the ‘gold standard’ measure-through-motion-and-low-perfusion SpO2 and pulse rate measurements of Masimo SET.
