Masimo Corp, Irvine, Calif, and the University Medical Center of Princeton at Plainsboro in New Jersey announced today the successful installation of the Masimo Patient SafetyNet™. The system tracks the underlying physiological conditions of patients and detects changes and abnormalities that signal declining health status in real time.

According to the company, the Masimo Patient SafetyNet has been clinically shown to reduce rapid response activations, intensive care unit transfers, and deaths related to opioid-induced respiratory depression. .

When a patient’s condition deteriorates, the system automatically sends wireless alerts directly to clinicians. The Masimo Patient SafetyNet system consists of Masimo SET® Measure-through Motion and Low Profusion pulse oximetry, and a choice of ventilation monitoring using either rainbow® Acoustic Monitoring or standard capnography, and remote monitoring and notification to keep clinicians connected to patients.
