Happy Holidays from Masimo!

December 21, 2006

This has been an exciting and successful year for all of us here at Masimo, and we wish to share our success with charitable organizations that you choose by making a donation to them on your behalf.

This year, we have seen increasingly strong clinical adoption of our revolutionary Masimo SET Read-Through Motion and Low Perfusion pulse oximetry technology, with nearly 400,000 systems in use worldwide. We are especially grateful that we were able to introduce the Second Revolution in Oximetry-Masimo Rainbow SET Pulse CO-Oximetry-and that it has already been responsible for saving lives by allowing clinicians to diagnose, treat and manage their patients' condition through the continuous and noninvasive measurement of carboxyhemoglobin, methemoglobin, oxygen saturation, perfusion index and pulse rate.

Building on this solid foundation, we plan to introduce a number of new technologies in 2007 that continue our mission to improve patient outcomes and reduce the cost of care by taking noninvasive monitoring to new sites and new applications.

As a show of gratitude to those of you who have supported the cause for better care-and to fulfill our heart-felt responsibility to give something back to some of the organizations committed to better care and a better world-Masimo would like to donate $10 to the charity of your choice. We will make this donation in the name of each person who is an official member of Livewire as of today and who responds to this Livewire with their choices from the list below:

  • Amnesty International
  • Opportunity International
  • CARE
  • Swan Foundation in Medical Ethics
  • Doctors Without Borders
  • Huntington's DSA
  • United Way
  • Make-a-Wish Foundation
  • World Vision
  • March of Dimes
  • 911 Research

Please send us an e-mail at: charity@masimo.com to specify your selection. Only requests by e-mail to this address will be processed.

We also would appreciate any comments or suggestions you might have that would help us as we strive to fulfill our mission and adhere to our guiding principles.
