Masimo launches RD SedLine adult EEG sensor in US

Monitoring technologies firm Masimo has launched the RD SedLine EEG sensor in the US to complement Masimo SedLine brain function monitoring and Masimo O3 regional oximetry.

SedLine and O3 are designed for simultaneous monitoring of the brain function on the Masimo Root monitoring platform.

The RD SedLine EEG sensor with a repositioned, colour-coded sensor cable connection can be laid on the patient’s head and its soft foam pads ensure decrease of discomfort upon application.

It features a streamlined shape and built-in fitting guide for simultaneous application of SedLine and O3 sensors, while an updated patient cable allows the sensor to retain its performance and specifications during the use with existing SedLine modules.

Masimo founder and chief executive officer Joe Kiani said: “Root with SedLine and O3 presents a powerful brain monitoring solution.

“With the addition of the RD SedLine EEG sensor, the EEG and optical sensors fit together like puzzle pieces, making it easier for clinicians to simultaneously monitor patients with both technologies, while providing a comfortable experience for the patient.”

"The EEG and optical sensors fit together like puzzle pieces, making it easier for clinicians to simultaneously monitor patients with both technologies."

The SedLine brain function monitoring includes four simultaneous EEG leads to ensure continuous assessment of both sides of the brain, four EEG waveforms, a Density Spectral Array (DSA) and the Patient State Index (PSI).

Yet to be available in the US, the upgraded model of SedLine increases the PSI to make it less susceptible to electromyographic (EMG) interference and to enhance performance in case of low-power EEG.

O3 regional oximetry utlises near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) to enable continuous monitoring of absolute and trended regional tissue oxygen saturation (rSO2) in the cerebral region.
