Next Generation SpHb technology significantly advances the forefront of noninvasive portable hemoglobin spot-check monitoring: SpHb field performance is enhanced across all hemoglobin ranges through faster measurement results and improved repeatability.1

Rad-67’s ability to provide portable spot-check monitoring measurements of both oxygen saturation and noninvasive hemoglobin makes it a single-device solution in multiple clinical and non-clinical settings, such as emergency rooms, pre-/post-surgery settings, and physicians’ offices. Rad-67 features a rechargeable battery with six-hour run time, powering a high-resolution color display with intuitive touchscreen navigation that automatically adjusts brightness to optimize visibility in a variety of care settings. Rad-67’s feedback screens provide real-time user guidance during SpHb measurement to help reduce error, while the slim-profile sensor connector port is designed to provide tactile feedback upon proper connection.

Rad-67 provides convenient historical data review directly on the device, with unique patient identifiers to help improve organization of records and workflow. Built-in wireless connectivity will enable data transfer to the EMR and printing results at the point of care, which may help reduce the likelihood of transcription errors2 or incomplete case records.

Professor Andrew Klein, Chair of the Department of Anesthesia and Intensive Care at Royal Papworth Hospital in Cambridge, England, and Editor-in-Chief of Anaesthesia, commented, “The Rad-67 is incredibly easy to use and gives a quick result, perfect in our busy pre-operative clinic. We have found it particularly useful as it helps us target those patients who may need further testing.”

Joe Kiani, Founder and CEO of Masimo, said, “We’re proud to launch Rad-67, Spot-check Next Generation SpHb monitoring, and the rainbow® DCI-mini in the United States. Spot-check Next Generation SpHb monitoring represents a significant enhancement to the noninvasive measurement we invented a decade ago – a measurement we look forward to continuing to improve.”

Rad-67 spot-check SpHb monitoring is not cleared for use on pediatric patients, pregnant patients, and patients with renal disease. SpHb is not intended to replace laboratory blood testing. Blood samples should be analyzed by laboratory instruments prior to clinical decision making.

About Masimo

Masimo (NASDAQ: MASI) is a global leader in innovative noninvasive monitoring technologies. Our mission is to improve patient outcomes and reduce the cost of care. In 1995, the company debuted Masimo SET® Measure-through Motion and Low Perfusion™ pulse oximetry, which has been shown in over 100 independent and objective studies to outperform other pulse oximetry technologies.3 Masimo SET® has also been shown to help clinicians reduce severe retinopathy of prematurity in neonates,4 improve CCHD screening in newborns,5 and, when used for continuous monitoring with Masimo Patient SafetyNet™ in post-surgical wards, reduce rapid response activations and costs.6-8 Masimo SET® is estimated to be used on more than 100 million patients in leading hospitals and other healthcare settings around the world,9 and is the primary pulse oximetry at 9 of the top 10 hospitals listed in the 2018-19 U.S. News and World Report Best Hospitals Honor Roll.10 In 2005, Masimo introduced rainbow® Pulse CO-Oximetry technology, allowing noninvasive and continuous monitoring of blood constituents that previously could only be measured invasively, including total hemoglobin (SpHb®), oxygen content (SpOC™), carboxyhemoglobin (SpCO®), methemoglobin (SpMet®), Pleth Variability Index (PVi®), and more recently, Oxygen Reserve Index (ORi™), in addition to SpO2, pulse rate, and perfusion index (Pi). In 2014, Masimo introduced Root®, an intuitive patient monitoring and connectivity platform with the Masimo Open Connect® (MOC-9®) interface, enabling other companies to augment Root with new features and measurement capabilities. Masimo is also taking an active leadership role in mHealth with products such as the Radius-7® wearable patient monitor, iSpO2® pulse oximeter for smartphones, and the MightySat™ fingertip pulse oximeter.
