Patient SafetyNet is a remote monitoring and clinician notification system that combines Masimo SET pulse oximetry and ventilation monitoring, employing wireless clinician notification via pager or telephone.

“We are excited about the extra layer of safety for our postoperative patients for inpatient surgery,” said Debi Dobbs, Nurse Manager at East Tennessee Children’s Hospital. “It’s especially beneficial for those patients who suffer from respiratory depression, and we are exploring placing the Patient SafetyNet system in additional units.”

The installation at East Tennessee Children’s is part of the leading pediatric healthcare organization’s standardization to Masimo SET Measure-Through Motion and Low Perfusion pulse oximetry and rainbow Pulse CO-Oximetry, according to the manufacturer.

“There is no higher calling in medicine than to offer the best care possible for children, and East Tennessee Children’s Hospital has shown that caring for children is its top concern,” said Joe Kiani, founder and CEO of Masimo. “We are delighted to be partnering with East Tennessee Children’s Hospital to help protect young patients, improve outcomes, and reduce costs.”
