The Irvine, Calif.-based company’s device is designed to allow clinicians to non-invasively measure arterial blood pressure as well as temperature while staying connected to electronic health records, Masimo said.
“Root and Patient SafetyNet powered with Masimo SET has changed for the better our patient care and patient safety. With remote alarm notification from Patient SafetyNet, we’ve been able to give proper care to patients in need without the false alarms that made proper care previously untenable. With the addition of blood pressure monitoring, we can provide patients in sub-acute care an integrated solution that will provide more efficient and effective care for our patients. We all, the physicians and nurses, are very happy with this new system and would never ever disclaim or work without the Root monitor,” chief nursing officer Caroline Stade, of Basel, Switzerland’s University Children’s Hospital, said in a press release.
The device also allows alarms and alerts to be sent to the patient’s clinician, the company said, and can automatically document vital sign data and use it to update patients electronic medical records.
Masimo won CE Mark approval for an oxygen monitoring feature on its Root device last January.
