Masimo Joins Forces with the Mobilize Recovery 2024 Bus Tour

Collaborative Partnership Designed to Enhance Nationwide Efforts to Combat the Opioid Epidemic and Improve Addiction Recovery

Masimo (NASDAQ: MASI), a leading global medical technology innovator, today announced that it is partnering with Mobilize Recovery, a nonprofit organization dedicated to ending America’s addiction and overdose crisis, by sponsoring and joining the Mobilize Recovery 2024 bus tour. The tour, which kicks off on September 20th in Los Angeles, with the first stop in Irvine, at the Masimo headquarters, is set to travel to 15 key cities around the U.S. to raise awareness, educate, and support communities around the country as they seek to prevent overdose and make sustainable improvements in addiction recovery outcomes. As part of this sixth annual initiative, Mobilize Recovery and Masimo will be showcasing two key Masimo innovations, Opioid Halo™ and Bridge™, which are designed to help people who are using opioids stay safe and reduce withdrawal symptoms during addiction recovery, respectively.


Mobilize Recovery and Masimo Bridge™ and Opioid Halo™

Founded by Mr. Ryan Hampton, Mobilize Recovery brings together recovery advocates, nonprofit organizations, allies, business leaders and innovators like Masimo, government partners, and like-minded community-based organizations with an interest in creating sustainable change and community solutions, as well as celebrating recovery from substance abuse disorder and mental health challenges. Engaging year-round with mobilizers, Mobilize Recovery provides partnership support and education to uplift and sustain partners’ work; help them develop action-oriented, measurable, scalable goals; raise public awareness; and prevent overdose.

Ryan Hampton, Founder and Executive Director of Mobilize Recovery, said, “Mobilize Recovery champions a grassroots approach, empowering advocates, innovators, businesses, and communities battling the overdose crisis firsthand. We see Masimo as a leading innovation partner in the recovery movement, uniquely positioned to drive technological advancements that make a real impact. We're thrilled to collaborate with a company so committed to leveraging technology for groundbreaking solutions in recovery. Masimo's Opioid Halo and Bridge have shown immense promise in helping opioid users, and we're eager to see their full potential realized. In Masimo’s CEO, Joe Kiani, we've found a passionate voice advocating for overcoming this epidemic, a true thought leader in the recovery field with an unwavering dedication to making a difference.”

Joe Kiani, Founder and CEO of Masimo, added, “We are excited to sponsor Mobilize Recovery, partner with their amazing team, and help kick off the bus tour in September. Masimo is committed to creating evidence-based solutions that fill in existing gaps in patient support networks. We were honored to be chosen by the FDA as a winner of their FDA Opioid Innovation Challenge for our solution to help prevent opioid overdose. With Opioid Halo, we became the first winner to have an authorized device to address the crisis. Bridge, in turn, is the first FDA-cleared medical device to help in the reduction of opioid withdrawal symptoms. Together, we believe these products, and the amazing efforts of Mobilize Recovery and its partners, can make a real difference in fighting the opioid crisis – as well as help eliminate the stigma around addiction.”

Opioid Halo, an opioid overdose prevention and alert system, was granted a De Novo by the FDA in 2023, making it the first and only FDA-cleared monitoring solution for detecting opioid-induced respiratory depression (OIRD). Opioid Halo advances the forefront of continuous monitoring through its unique Opioid Halo engine, an advanced pattern recognition algorithm which helps detect and quantify the risk of severe OIRD. Combined with its innovative distributed architecture, Opioid Halo helps to manage and send escalating alarms to family members, friends, and caregivers, notifying them that help may be needed due to an opioid overdose – including triggering an automatic wellness call, which may lead to EMS being dispatched.

Bridge, a drug-free opioid withdrawal device, uses neuromodulation to aid in the reduction of symptoms associated with opioid withdrawal. Bridge, which has also been granted a De Novo by the FDA, is the first evidence-based, drug-free, non-surgical device of its kind. While medication-assisted treatment can be effective in helping treat opioid withdrawal symptoms, Bridge may help significantly reduce those symptoms, within 30 minutes, helping users make progress in their treatment by bridging the gap on the road to recovery. Bridge fits behind the ear – applied by a healthcare provider in a short, non-surgical procedure – and works by sending electrical impulses to the nerves around the ear, which transmit them to the brain, providing up to five days of continuous relief from withdrawal symptoms.

Germans Trias i Pujol Hospital in Spain Launches Telehealth and Remote Patient Management Program Using Masimo W1® Medical Watches and Radius VSM™ Wearable Continuous Vital Signs Monitors

Scope of the SESHAT Project at Pioneering Hospital, Part of the Catalan Health Institute, Includes Deployment of up to 1,000 Masimo W1 Watches, 100 Radius VSMs, and Numerous Additional Masimo Hospital Automation™ Solutions

Masimo (NASDAQ: MASI) today announced that Germans Trias i Pujol, a pioneering hospital serving more than 800,000 people in north Barcelona, Spain, is launching a breakthrough telehealth and remote patient management initiative using Masimo technology. The SESHAT project is focused on using advanced wearable technologies and wireless connectivity to allow remote clinicians to keep track of patients’ physiological data in near real time wherever they are, whether the patient is in another part of the hospital or at home. The project, which began in the fourth quarter of 2023 and is slated to last at least three years, includes the implementation of up to 1,000 Masimo W1® medical watches, 100 Radius VSM™ Wearable Continuous Vital Signs Monitors, 10 Patient SafetyNet™ Systems, and a host of additional Masimo Hospital Automation™ products. 


Masimo W1®, Radius VSM™, Root®, Patient SafetyNet™, and UniView®

Joe Kiani, Founder and CEO of Masimo, said, “We are honored to partner with Germans Trias i Pujol to support the SESHAT project. When I founded Masimo 35 years ago, our mission was to improve patient outcomes and reduce the cost of care by taking noninvasive monitoring to new sites and applications. Now, with decades of innovation and refinement, we are bringing our pioneering accurate and continuous monitoring technologies to even more new sites and applications, including the home – with powerful wearable, tetherless, and remote modalities like Masimo SET®-based Masimo W1 and Radius VSM. Our breakthrough predictive algorithm Halo™, AI-powered tools, and connectivity and automation solutions in turn make that accurate, precise, rich stream of actionable patient data available to clinicians when and where they need it, helping patients feel connected and cared for, and informing evermore insightful decisions about care. Ultimately, we believe this will improve outcomes while reducing the cost of care, in keeping with our founding mission. We look forward to gleaning innumerable insights and improving 800,000 lives with the forward-thinking clinicians of Germans Trias i Pujol.”

Dr. Oriol Estrada, Director of Healthcare Strategy and Innovation at Germans Trias, commented, “Project SESHAT, named for the Egyptian goddess of writing and measurement, aims to transform healthcare from a reactive to a predictive model thanks to continuous and real-time reliable patient data measured through wearable technology, both in hospital and at home.”

The SESHAT project arose from needs identified during the COVID pandemic and centers on the remote monitoring of patients with complex care requirements. The project's goal is to obtain real-time physiological data from patients and have that data help clinicians improve health outcomes. By facilitating better tracking of each patient’s physiological changes, and combining such changes with other available health data, SESHAT project clinicians hope to design and validate better prospective indicators of clinical progress and therapeutic adherence. Their goal is ultimately to help institutions transition from a reactive care model, in which healthcare teams treat symptomatic diseases, to a more proactive model in which teams receive information that enables them to anticipate complications or select more suitable medications to ensure a better therapeutic response, based on each patient's profile.

“To achieve these objectives,” continued Dr. Estrada, “wearable technology that is robust, reliable, and does not hinder the patient's normal life had to be selected. After analyzing various options, Masimo technology embedded in medical-grade wearable devices such as Masimo W1 and Radius VSM was chosen. A decisive factor in this choice was Masimo's willingness to become a technological partner beyond just being a technology provider. We have established a strategic collaboration whereby the SESHAT project will serve as a validation field for technological improvements and identification of new needs in which both institutions will cooperate. When deciding, it was important for the project leaders to work with a leading company in the monitoring technology sector that offers a portfolio with a global solution for all phases of patient care: from the hospital to the home, while also providing integration with Hospital Information Systems.”

The Germans Trias i Pujol University Hospital of Badalona belongs to the Catalan Health Institute. It is a high-tech center that provides health services to a population of 800,000 inhabitants in the North Metropolitan area of Barcelona. Since its foundation, the hospital has been a pioneer in the development and care in various areas of excellence, such as infectious, cardiovascular, inflammatory, oncological, and respiratory diseases, among others. It encompasses a powerful biomedical research campus with 12 internationally renowned institutions, employing over 6,000 professionals and researchers in the field of health. Clinical innovation—transforming clinical problems into opportunities for improving outcomes—is one of the institution's strategic pillars. 

Halo is not FDA cleared and is not available in the U.S.

Masimo Receives Sustainability Seal of Approval from Practice Greenhealth

Masimo Becomes First Pulse Oximetry Manufacturer to Be Recognized with Coveted “Greenhealth Approved” Seal 

Masimo (NASDAQ: MASI), a leading medical technology innovator, and Practice Greenhealth, a prominent organization dedicated to advancing sustainability solutions for healthcare providers, today announced that Masimo is now a recipient of the Greenhealth Approved seal. Masimo’s products – in particular its line of RD pulse oximetry sensors – are the first pulse oximetry products to receive the Greenhealth sustainability seal. The seal is only granted to products that meet specific sustainability criteria, making it a reliable indicator for health care providers seeking to identify environmentally preferable products without the time and expense needed to conduct their own independent verification.


Greenhealth Approved: Masimo RD Sensors

Bilal Muhsin, Chief Operating Officer, Masimo, said, “Masimo is committed to both excellent patient care and environmental responsibility. The RD pulse oximetry sensor line was designed with the environment in mind, so we are pleased and proud to be the first to receive the Greenhealth Approved seal in this category.”

Masimo continually strives to make its products, packaging, and facilities more environmentally friendly and has implemented a variety of green initiatives, including designing products that promote sustainability by eliminating unnecessary material from being introduced into the product stream, expansion of its sensor recycling program, which is committed to achieving “zero waste to landfill,” and partnership with sustainability-focused organizations such as Practice Greenhealth. 

From sensor design to disposal, Masimo uses materials that are less wasteful without compromising quality or performance. In addition to meeting the chemicals criteria of Health Care Without Harm, RD single-patient-use pulse oximetry sensors also:

  • Reduce waste by 84% when compared to cable-based sensors1
  • Achieve zero waste to landfill through Masimo’s sensor recycling program
  • Allow for “reprocessing at the bedside” with replacement tapes
  • Offer best-in-class SpO2 accuracy specifications of 1.5% ARMS* and accurately measure on patients with varying skin pigmentation and low perfusion2,3
  • Maximize patient comfort with low-profile, lightweight components
  • Use the same, standardized connector for multiple sensor technologies (e.g. SET® and rainbow®

The review process for the Greenhealth Approved seal includes the submission of a complete ingredient list along with proof of certifications for the category’s criteria. “Greenhealth Approved removes obstacles that previously made purchasing sustainable products difficult,” said Paul Bogart, Executive Director of Practice Greenhealth. “Normally each health care provider conducts its own product review, often without extensive experience in chemistry and sustainability. We are helping streamline and centralize this approach, working closely with each supplier and completing a detailed product review using trusted criteria. Greenhealth Approved allows health care providers to quickly and easily identify and purchase sustainable products that decrease their impact on the environment.” 

Providers interested in finding out which products carry the Greenhealth Approved seal can check the website and sign up for regular updates as products are approved for the seal.

Masimo Receives FDA Clearance for Stork™ Over-the-Counter (OTC) Baby Monitoring System

With This Clearance, Stork Provides Continuous Monitoring of Oxygen Saturation, Pulse Rate, and Skin Temperature, with Alarms, for Babies up to 18 Months, at Home, Without a Prescription

Masimo (NASDAQ: MASI), a global leader in innovative monitoring technologies currently celebrating its 35th anniversary, announced FDA clearance of Stork™, a baby monitoring system that provides alarms to parents or other caregivers, for use with healthy babies 0-18 months of age, without the need for a prescription. 


Masimo Stork™

The over-the-counter (OTC) version of Stork utilizes the same Masimo pulse oximetry technology that monitors more than 10 million babies in hospitals every year1 and is used at 9 of the top 10 U.S. hospitals.2 The FDA-cleared OTC version of Masimo Stork monitors a baby’s key vitals data including oxygen saturation level (SpO2), pulse rate (PR), and skin temperature; crucially, Stork notifies caregivers with visual and audible alarms if a baby’s SpO2 or PR readings fall outside of preset ranges. 

Stork leverages the same pulse oximetry technology that has been used on babies in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) for decades, helping to improve health outcomes for the youngest and most vulnerable patients. Known as Signal Extraction Technology®, or SET®, this technology has helped clinicians reduce the incidence of neonatal blindness from retinopathy of prematurity3 and has led to significant improvements in screening newborns for critical congenital heart disease.4 

“Bringing your new baby home from the hospital is exciting, but can be nerve- wracking—and it’s something I remember vividly from when my son was born and required at-home monitoring,” said Joe Kiani, Founder and CEO of Masimo. “I believe that by empowering parents and caregivers with the same Masimo pulse oximetry technology that hospitals have been using on babies for decades, we can help them feel more informed and confident when caring for their baby. It is particularly fitting that we received this clearance and are making this announcement as we celebrate the 35th anniversary of the company I founded with a mission to improve lives everywhere, especially those of the youngest and most fragile among us. Thirty-five years ago I envisioned Stork. I am so proud of our team for Stork – it is a culmination of science and design at its best.” 

Stork bundles are currently available at major and specialty retailers nationwide and at masimo.com as a non-medical device for general health and wellness purposes. Alongside the FDA clearance, Masimo will make Stork’s new alarm features available to all existing and new Stork users through the Masimo Stork App, in an update scheduled to be released this summer. FDA-cleared OTC Stork bundles will be available for purchase online and at retailers this summer. 

Masimo’s patented SET® sensor technology nests within the Stork boot, which is made from an ultra-soft, medical-grade silicone that conforms gently to the baby’s skin and is available in three sizes to ensure a perfect fit as the child grows. The sensor embedded in the boot is the product of meticulous engineering that harnesses decades of expertise in noninvasive monitoring to detect babies’ SpO2, PR, and skin temperature continuously, with unprecedented accuracy and dependability.

Masimo Stork has a sleek, minimalist design that fits seamlessly into any nursery and on the baby’s foot. The Stork Vitals+ bundle includes the boot with sensor that monitors baby’s skin temperature, PR, and SpO2, and a 2K Quad High-Definition (QHD) capable camera with technology supported by the TODA platform from Like Minded Labs. The camera hardware and software architecture are designed to leverage and be compatible with future edge AI-based features, which are in development.  The first application of the edge AI technology will be identifying babies who have turned face down. For those who do not require streaming video, or detection via video of babies being face down, the Stork Vitals bundle replaces the camera with a hub, which connects the Stork vital signs sensor/boot to the Stork app, while still allowing parents to hear their baby. Stork also monitors the baby’s room conditions (ambient temperature and humidity).

Masimo Stork is 510(k) cleared for OTC use as a wearable device intended for the monitoring of multiple physiological parameters. Masimo Stork is indicated for spot-checking and continuous monitoring of SpO2 and PR during no motion, motion, and low perfusion conditions in infants and neonates who are 0 to 18 months of age and between 6 and 30 lbs. Masimo Stork OTC is also indicated for continuous skin temperature measurements of infants and neonates who are 0 to 18 months of age and between 6 and 30 lbs. Masimo Stork is indicated for use in home environments.

Masimo Stork can be used to supplement a caregiver’s decision to seek additional guidance for the care of an infant or neonate. It is not intended to provide notifications for every episode of the unexpected occurrences of elevated or depressed PR or low SpO2; rather, Masimo Stork is intended to provide a notification only when sufficient data are available for analysis. 

Masimo Stork is not intended to replace the monitoring, diagnosis, or treatment provided by a physician or healthcare provider. Masimo Stork is not intended for use with infants and neonates previously diagnosed with cardiovascular or respiratory disease or conditions.

Masimo Founder and CEO Joe Kiani to Speak on AI at Global Patient Safety Summit in Chile

Kiani’s Speech on Wednesday, at the 6th Global Ministerial Summit on Patient Safety, Will Explore How AI-Based Medical Solutions Can Empower Clinicians and Improve Patient Safety

Masimo (NASDAQ: MASI) today announced that its Founder and CEO, Joe Kiani, will be a featured speaker tomorrow, April 17, at the 6th Global Ministerial Summit on Patient Safety. Kiani’s speech, “Empowering Patient Safety Through AI,” will discuss how artificial intelligence-based technologies, by analyzing both historical and immediate data, can help clinicians prevent errors of omission, improving patient safety, patient outcomes, and clinician efficiency.

As Kiani will note, Masimo’s AI-powered medical technologies, including those used as part of the Masimo Hospital Automation™ family of solutions available today, can ease the burden of staffing shortages by improving clinician efficiency. Furthermore, by integrating and analyzing patient data from a variety of sources, in real time, such technology can provide greater situational awareness than alarms alone and help predict increases in patient risk, prompting clinicians to intervene sooner to catch physiological deterioration before a patient’s condition worsens. 

“We introduced the Halo engine in 2010,” said Kiani. “Halo is the first predictive algorithm to incorporate learnings from expert clinicians to identify deterioration patterns in multiple physiological parameters simultaneously in real time to help clinicians identify patient safety issues before it’s too late. Without AI, these types of solutions would not be possible. We’re proud to be at the forefront of this very promising avenue of improving patient safety and patient care. AI – when implemented with the ingenuity, integrity, and expertise Masimo is known for – has the predictive power to help clinicians shape robust streams of patient data – both historical and immediate – into meaningful, actionable insights about their patients. Tools such as Halo ION® and the newly introduced Opioid Halo™, soon to be joined by Sepsis Halo, Activity Halo, and more, can help clinicians prioritize patient needs, make more informed decisions and more efficient diagnoses, and streamline workflows in numerous ways. At Masimo, we have always championed patient safety, and we’re particularly excited to collaborate with caregivers around the world to advance patient safety using AI.”

For more information about the Global Ministerial Summit, please visit psschile.minsal.cl. For more information about Masimo and its innovative solutions, please visit www.masimo.com.

Halo, Sepsis Halo, Activity Halo, and AI-based algorithms for Halo ION are not FDA cleared.

Masimo Announces the First FDA-cleared “Over-the-Counter” Fingertip Pulse Oximeter 

Masimo MightySat® Medical Provides Clinically Proven Masimo SET® Pulse Oximetry to Consumers for Medical Use Without a Prescription 

Masimo (NASDAQ: MASI) announced today FDA clearance of MightySat® Medical, making it the first and only FDA-cleared medical fingertip pulse oximeter available Over-The-Counter (OTC) direct to consumers without a prescription. All other pulse oximeters available at drug stores and online and sold direct to consumers are not FDA cleared and should not be relied upon for medical use; many of them have been reported to give erroneous measurements.1 This clearance brings consumers a pulse oximeter medical device powered by Masimo SET® pulse oximetry—the same technology relied on by hospitals and clinics around the world to monitor more than 200 million patients every year2 and shown to have no clinically significant difference in accuracy or bias between light- and dark-skinned individuals.3 Starting today, the MightySat Medical Pulse Oximeter can be purchased at masimo.com, and it will soon be available for purchase at retail and drug stores across the country.


Masimo MightySat® Medical

Joe Kiani, Founder and CEO of Masimo, said, “Until now, consumers and even healthcare providers had no way of knowing what pulse oximeter they could trust to use at home.  On the internet and even in drug stores, they are inundated with a myriad of products that are unreliable, with misleading advertisements about their abilities to provide accurate measurements of oxygen saturation and pulse rate. This clearance of MightySat Medical for consumers eliminates the confusion, placing an FDA-cleared, accurate, reliable, and revolutionary SET® pulse oximeter, with technology that hospitals have been using for more than 25 years, directly into their hands. Healthcare providers can also now be confident when referring their patients to get MightySat Medical knowing that it has actually been cleared by the FDA as an OTC medical pulse oximeter.”

In 2021, the FDA issued a safety communication clarifying that it does not review the accuracy of “health and wellness” pulse oximeters and highlighting the common limitations of both health and wellness and some prescription pulse oximeters—such as difficulty measuring accurately during patient motion, on patients with poor circulation (low perfusion), and on darker skin pigmentation.4 The overwhelming majority of consumers say that device accuracy—measurements they can trust—is their top priority when choosing a pulse oximeter. MightySat Medical provides a direct-to-consumer option for a medical device with hospital-grade pulse oximetry technology, Masimo SET®, whose performance has been reviewed and cleared by the FDA for medical use. MightySat Medical provides accurate and reliable oxygen saturation (SpO2) and pulse rate (PR) measurements on patients of all skin colors and patients with low perfusion.

Consumers with diagnosed breathing problems or lung diseases such as asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), lung cancer, flu, pneumonia, or COVID-19 depend on accurate assessment of their arterial blood oxygen saturation that they can confidently share with their healthcare providers. Prior to the FDA clearance of MightySat Medical, consumers were only able to buy unregulated health and wellness devices without a prescription. Now, MightySat Medical with Masimo SET® provides an FDA-cleared medical device with validated accuracy without the need for a prescription. SET®, available in numerous hospital devices, is the primary pulse oximetry technology at 9 of the top 10 U.S. hospitals listed in the U.S. News and World Report Honor Roll.5 In addition, over 100 independent and objective studies have shown that SET® outperforms other pulse oximetry technologies.6

Peter Pronovost, MD, PhD, Chief Quality and Clinical Transformation Officer, University Hospitals, Cleveland, commented, “More and more care is moving to the patient’s home. Patients now have the ability to monitor their oxygen levels and pulse rate, which can help them know when they need to seek care. Yet to be useful, their pulse oximetry data must be accurate and the accuracy of these devices varies widely. Doctors and nurses rely on Masimo technology in the hospital.”

Masimo MightySat Medical is intended for the spot-checking of functional oxygen saturation of arterial hemoglobin (SpO2) and pulse rate (PR). 

MightySat Medical is indicated for use with individuals 18 years and older who are well or poorly perfused under no motion conditions. 

MightySat Medical is not intended for the diagnosis or screening of lung disease. Treatment decisions using the device should only be made under the advice of a healthcare provider.

New Peer-Reviewed Study Finds That Masimo SET® Pulse Oximetry Measures Accurately on Both Black and White People Even During Low Perfusion

Masimo (NASDAQ: MASI), today announced the findings of a retrospective, peer-reviewed study published in the Journal of Clinical Monitoring and Computing in which Dr. Vikrant Sharma, along with Dr. Steven J. Barker, Dr. William C. Wilson, and colleagues at Masimo performed a focused analysis of previously published data to evaluate the impact of low perfusion on the performance of Masimo SET® pulse oximetry across a variety of skin pigmentations.1 The analysis demonstrated that Masimo RD SET® sensors accurately measured oxygen saturation (SpO2) for both Black and White subjects when perfusion index (Pi) was normal and when Pi was low – adding to the body of evidence that Masimo SET® pulse oximetry delivers accurate values across the skin tone range, with no clinically significant difference in accuracy or bias, even in challenging conditions.


Masimo RD SET®

In a study published in 2023, Drs. Barker and Wilson analyzed Masimo laboratory data obtained from self-identified Black and White volunteer subjects to evaluate differences in Masimo pulse oximetry accuracy and bias on the basis of skin tone. To do so, they reviewed more than 7,000 paired data samples (collected between 2015 and 2021) from 75 subjects (39 Black and 36 White) and found no clinically significant difference in accuracy or bias.2 

For this newly published study, noting that low peripheral perfusion is a “recognized confounder of conventional pulse oximetry” and in light of concerns that low perfusion combined with dark skin pigmentation might decrease pulse oximetry’s accuracy, the investigators sought to determine whether accuracy on Black or White subjects was impacted by a subject’s perfusion index (Pi) with Masimo SET® pulse oximetry. To that end, they abstracted Pi values from their dataset, and divided them into “low perfusion” (Pi ≤ 1) and “normal perfusion” (Pi > 1) groups. They then performed statistical analyses to determine bias (the mean difference between SpO2 and arterial oxygen saturation [SaO2]), precision (the standard deviation of the difference), and accuracy (root-mean-square error, or ARMS*). 

The researchers found that in the normal perfusion group, comparing SpO2 to SaO2 values, there was overall bias and precision of +0.18% ± 1.34%, with accuracy of 1.37% ARMS. For the subset of Black subjects, there was bias and precision of -0.26% ± 1.37%, and for White subjects, -0.12% ± 1.31%. In the low perfusion group, there was overall bias and precision of 0.48% ± 1.59%, with accuracy of 1.64% ARMS. For Black subjects, bias and precision were 0.19% ± 1.53%, and for White subjects, 0.91% ± 1.57%.

Based on their analysis, the authors concluded, “Masimo SET® pulse oximeters with RD SET® sensors are accurate for individuals of both Black and White races when Pi is normal, as well as during conditions when Pi is low. The ARMS for all conditions studied is well within FDA standards. This study was conducted in healthy volunteers during well-controlled laboratory desaturations, and results could vary under certain challenging clinical conditions.”

However, the authors noted that controlling conditions in the laboratory setting helps “minimize confounders that are present in clinical scenarios, allowing for greater focus on the topics of skin tone and Pi. Indeed, abnormal hemoglobin species (e.g., carboxyhemoglobin and methemoglobin) [known clinical SpO2 confounders] were measured and reported in the earlier paper by Barker and Wilson, and the values were similar (statistically the same) between Black and White groups.2 Also, one can only ethically conduct desaturation studies using healthy volunteer subjects in a safe setting.”

*ARMS accuracy is a statistical calculation of the difference between device measurements and reference measurements. Approximately two-thirds of the device measurements fell within +/- ARMS of the reference measurements in a controlled study.

Masimo Announces Reinstatement of Import Ban on Infringing Apple Watches

Masimo (NASDAQ: MASI), a global leader in innovative noninvasive monitoring technologies, welcomes the Federal Circuit’s ruling to lift the temporary stay on the import ban of certain Apple Watch models. This decision reinstates the U.S. International Trade Commission’s import ban and cease and desist order on Apple watches that were found to infringe Masimo’s patented pulse oximetry technology.


Masimo W1™

“The Federal Circuit's decision to lift the temporary stay is a victory for the integrity of the American patent system and the safety of people relying on pulse oximetry,” said Joe Kiani, Founder and CEO of Masimo. “It affirms that even the largest and most powerful companies must respect the intellectual rights of American inventors and must deal with the consequences when they are caught infringing others’ patents.” 

Masimo has previously made available a study showing that Apple Watch’s pulse oximetry missed over 90% of potentially life-threatening events. The Apple Watch pulse oximeter was not cleared by the United Stated Food and Drug Administration for medical use. On the other hand, the Masimo W1® health watch was recently cleared by the FDA for its indicated medical uses, including continuous pulse oximetry. Masimo’s pulse oximetry technology is used on over 200 million patients in hospitals a year1 and has been proven to help save babies’ eyesight in the neonatal ICU,2 detect critical congenital heart defects in newborns,3 and save the lives of patients in post-surgical wards who are taking opioids.4-7
