The Radical-7 is a wireless, touch screen device, which is on an upgradeable rainbow SET platform. Radical-7 monitors a patient from the ambulatory environment, to the emergency room, to the operating room, to the general floor and on, until the patient is discharged. Root is a patient monitoring and connectivity platform that integrates its rainbow and SET measurements with additional measurements through Masimo Open Connect (MOC-9) in an integrated, clinician-centric platform.
The Company's Radius-7 for the Root is the wearable, wireless monitor with its rainbow SET technology, enabling early identification of clinical deterioration. With rainbow SET non-invasive measurements, Radius-7 with Root can alert clinicians at the bedside or remotely, through Masimo Patient SafetyNet, of critical changes in a patient's oxygen saturation and pulse rate, even during states of motion and low perfusion, as well as respiration through RRa.
The Company's SatShare technology enables a conventional monitor to receive continuous measurement updates using Masimo SET through a cable connection from the back of Radical-7 to the sensor input port of the conventional monitor. Pronto is a handheld non-invasive multiparameter testing device that uses Masimo rainbow SET technology to provide oxygen saturation, pulse rate, perfusion index and spot-checking of hemoglobin levels for both hospitals, such as emergency departments, and remote settings, such as physician offices. Rad-8 is a bedside pulse oximeter featuring Masimo SET. Its Rad-5 and Rad-5v are handheld oximeters with Masimo SET.
The Company's Rad-57 is a handheld Pulse CO-Oximeter that provides non-invasive measurement of hemoglobin, carboxyhemoglobin and methemoglobin in addition to oxygen saturation, pulse rate and perfusion index. Its rugged and lightweight design makes it applicable for use in hospital and field settings, specifically for fire departments and emergency medical service units. SedLine MOC-9 Module has SedLine monitor that measures brain function on a continuous basis. The SedLine MOC-9 module for Root is an electroencephalogram (EEG)-based brain function monitor that provides information about a patient's response to anesthesia. O3 MOC-9 Module for Root uses near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) to detect regional hypoxemia by continuously measuring tissue oxygen saturation (rSo2), automating the differential analysis of regional to central oxygen saturation. The Company offers a portfolio of capnography and gas monitoring products ranging from external 'plug-in-and-measure' capnography and gas analyzers, integrated modules, and handheld capnograph and capnometer devices. Its gas analyzers, IRMA and ISA, and emergency capnometer (EMMA), offers Carbon Dioxide (CO2), Nitrogen Dioxide (N2O), Oxygen (O2) and anesthetic agent monitoring in hospital environments. Its SET technology-in-a-cable contains the Company's low power (MS-2040) technology in a reduced size, allowing it to be embedded into patient cables as part of the sensor connector.
The Company has a range of single-patient use (disposable), reusable and rainbow ReSposable sensors and cables. In total, the Company has over 100 different types of sensors to meet all clinical needs. Masimo SET sensors are designed to reduce interference from physiological and non-physiological noise.
