Masimo is miniaturizing its pulse oximetry offerings thanks to a tiny new sub-45 milliwatt board that offers “the same proven unprecedented Measure-Through Motion and Low Perfusion oxygen saturation (SpO2), pulse rate, and perfusion index (PI) measurement capabilities of Masimo SET® pulse oximetry, in addition to Pleth Variability Index (PVI).” The board is half the size and eats a third of the electricity of previous comparable boards, which will bring advanced pulse oximetry to smaller and more portable devices. The device is now available as a component for medical device developers to integrate into new products or as a “board-in-cable” solution to expand the capabilities of existing devices.
Using less than 45 milliwatts of power, Masimo MS-2040 boards are available in both a double-stack version (pictured) with dimensions of 1.8″ x 1.15″ x 0.46″ and single-stack version with dimensions of 2.0″ x 1.38″ x 0.36″. The small size and reduced power consumption of Masimo MS-2040 boards enhance integration into next-generation portable medical devices that need to be smaller, lighter, and more mobile—consuming less than a third of the power without sacrificing accuracy during motion and low perfusion.
The MS-2040 circuit board is also available as an external “board-in-cable” solution. Embedded within a completely self-contained patient cable, the “board-in-cable” solution provides external Masimo SET pulse oximetry capabilities for existing devices that do not presently offer an integrated pulse oximetry solution. This affords medical equipment manufacturers a simpler way to add Masimo SET pulse oximetry as an external (oximeter outside) option and enables a wide range of reliable handheld and patient-wearable application possibilities.
