US-based monitoring technologies firm Masimo has secured CE marking of non-invasive blood pressure (NIBP) measurements for the Rad-97 Pulse CO-Oximeter and connectivity hub.
Rad-97 features measure-through motion and low perfusion SET pulse oximetry and upgradeable rainbow non-invasive blood constituent monitoring technology in a compact standalone monitor configuration that can collect and remotely transmit data from connected devices.
With spot-check, automatic interval and stat interval modes, Rad-97 combined with NIBP facilitates the measurement of arterial blood pressure for adult, pediatric and neonatal patients.
The device includes an integrated port to connect a blood pressure cuff inflation hose that is compatible with both disposable and reusable cuffs to accommodate a variety of patient types.
Masimo founder and chief executive officer Joe Kiani said: “Rad-97 brings our core SET and rainbow technologies to a compact design, which allows broader applications in many new settings, including the home, with its hub and telepresence capabilities."
Rad-97 with NIBP also enables automatic charting of blood pressure data directly from the same monitoring device that measures non- invasive parameters such as oxygen saturation and total hemoglobin.
The device includes built-in wireless connectivity through wifi and bluetooth, which allows connection to nearby devices such as glucometers and weight scale, as well as remote transmission of data.
It also enables easy customisation and configuration with high-resolution, 1080p user-friendly multi-touch navigation display.
Clinicians can add other monitoring solutions such as the rainbow SET measurements PVi, total hemoglobin (SpHb), methemoglobin (SpMet), acoustic respiration rate (RRa), carboxyhemoglobin (SpCO) and oxygen content (SpOC).
