The Radical-7 incorporates its MX circuit board, which enables rainbow SET measurements and offers three-in-one capability that can be used as a standalone device for bedside monitoring; a detachable, battery-operated handheld unit for portable monitoring, and a monitor interface through SatShare. 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 integrates its rainbow and SET measurements with additional measurements through Masimo Open Connect (MOC-9) in an integrated, clinician-centric platform. Iris connectivity in Root enables third-party devices, such as intravenous pumps and ventilators to connect through Root enabling display, notification and documentation to the electronic medical record through Masimo Patient SafetyNet application.
The Company's Radius-7 for the Root is a 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. Rad-97 is a standalone monitor that features Measure-through Motion and Low Perfusion pulse oximetry, pulse rate and perfusion index. Additional monitoring solutions, such as the rainbow SET measurements total hemoglobin, methemoglobin, acoustic respiration rate, carboxyhemoglobin and oxygen content, can be added to Rad-97. MightySat Rx is a fingertip pulse oximeter that incorporates Masimo SET Measure-through Motion and Low Perfusion technology.
The Company offers 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. These products offer 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 sensors and cables. As of December 31, 2016, the Company had over 100 different types of sensors. Masimo SET sensors are designed to reduce interference from physiological and non-physiological noise. Its reusable sensors are primarily used for short-term, spot-check monitoring. SofTouch Sensors are designed with less adhesive or no adhesive at all for compromised skin conditions. These include single-patient sensors for newborns and multi-site reusable sensors for pediatrics and adults. The Company has two sensor lines specifically designed for trauma and resuscitation situations, as well as for newborns. Blue Sensors are sensors used to monitor arterial blood oxygen saturation levels in cyanotic infants and children with abnormally low oxygen saturation levels. E1 Ear Sensor is designed for field emergency medical services utilization. TFA-1 Adhesive Forehead Sensor can combine Masimo SET performance and central monitoring to provide access and responsive assessment of oxygenation, for hospitals desiring forehead monitoring with a disposable sensor.
