Masimo just obtained FDA clearance for its Rad-67 Pulse CO-Oximeter with Spot-check Next Generation SpHb monitoring technology and the rainbow DCI-mini Reusable Sensor. The device can be used for quick noninvasive hemoglobin measurement and features the Masimos’s own Measure-through Motion and Low Perfusion SET pulse oximetry. Combined with the rainbow DCI-mini sensor, Rad-67 offers spot-check monitoring with Masimo’s Next Generation SpHb.
The device is portable, thanks to a rechargeable battery that will run for up to six hours, and can be used in a variety of settings, including ERs, pre/post op rooms, and doctors’ offices. It’s controlled via a touch-screen interface that changes its brightness depending on the surrounding light levels, helping clinicians go from room to room without the screen being too dim or too bright.
The device has a few features to make sure everything goes smoothly on every test, including providing a vibration feedback when the sensor has been properly connected to its port. A series of feedback screens help guide the operator through the hemoglobin measurement process.
All the measurements are saved and organized by patient, while wireless capability allows the Rad-67 to upload its data to the hospital’s electronic medical records.
