Masimo Announces CE Marking of Eve™ CCHD Newborn Screening Application for the Rad-97™ Pulse CO-Oximeter®

Masimo  (NASDAQ: MASI) announced today the CE marking of Eve™, a critical congenital heart disease (CCHD) newborn screening application, for the Rad-97™ Pulse CO-Oximeter® . Eve combines the power of Masimo SET® Measure-through Motion and Low Perfusion™ pulse oximetry with a pre-ductal to post-ductal synchronization algorithm designed to reduce calculation errors.

Eve, also available on the Radical-7® Pulse CO-Oximeter, simplifies the CCHD screening process by providing visual instructions, animations, an automatic synchronization algorithm, and a detailed, easy-to-interpret display of screening results. The ability to label results with unique patient identifiers for both mother and newborn facilitates intuitive session management and seamless electronic charting. Eve also allows clinicians to incorporate perfusion index into screening, which has been shown to increase sensitivity to the detection of CCHD in infants with pathologically low perfusion.1

CCHD affects approximately 3 newborns per 1000 live births2 and requires intervention soon after birth to prevent significant morbidity or mortality; later detection in infants also increases the risk of brain damage.3 In a study of 39,821 infants, CCHD screening sensitivity increased from 63% with physical exam alone to 83% with physical exam and Masimo SET® pulse oximetry.4 In a study of 122,738 infants – the largest CCHD screening study to date – CCHD screening sensitivity increased from 77% to 93% with the combined use of Masimo SET® and clinical assessment.5

“Multiple studies have shown that Masimo SET® pulse oximetry can help improve CCHD screening, helping to save many newborns’ lives while reducing the cost of care,” commented Joe Kiani, Founder and CEO of Masimo. “Eve builds on the powerful benefits of SET® by transforming pulse oximeters into intuitive screening tools which can help clinicians perform the crucial work of screening newborns in an easy-to-follow and intuitive application.”

Eve has not obtained FDA clearance and is not available in the United States. Radical-7 and Rad-97 have obtained FDA clearance and are available, without Eve, in the United States.

About Masimo

Masimo (NASDAQ: MASI) is a global leader in innovative noninvasive monitoring technologies. Our mission is to improve patient outcomes and reduce the cost of care. In 1995, the company debuted Masimo SET® Measure-through Motion and Low Perfusion™ pulse oximetry, which has been shown in multiple studies to significantly reduce false alarms and accurately monitor for true alarms. Masimo SET® has also been shown to help clinicians reduce severe retinopathy of prematurity in neonates,1 improve CCHD screening in newborns,2 and, when used for continuous monitoring with Masimo Patient SafetyNet™* in post-surgical wards, reduce rapid response activations and costs.3,4,5 Masimo SET® is estimated to be used on more than 100 million patients in leading hospitals and other healthcare settings around the world,6 and is the primary pulse oximetry at 17 of the top 20 hospitals listed in the 2017-18 U.S. News and World Report Best Hospitals Honor Roll.7 In 2005, Masimo introduced rainbow® Pulse CO-Oximetry technology, allowing noninvasive and continuous monitoring of blood constituents that previously could only be measured invasively, including total hemoglobin (SpHb® ), oxygen content (SpOC™), carboxyhemoglobin (SpCO® ), methemoglobin (SpMet® ), Pleth Variability Index (PVi® ), and more recently, Oxygen Reserve Index (ORi™), in addition to SpO2 , pulse rate, and perfusion index (Pi). In 2014, Masimo introduced Root® , an intuitive patient monitoring and connectivity platform with the Masimo Open Connect™ (MOC-9™) interface, enabling other companies to augment Root with new features and measurement capabilities. Masimo is also taking an active leadership role in mHealth with products such as the Radius-7™ wearable patient monitor, iSpO2 ® pulse oximeter for smartphones, and the MightySat™ fingertip pulse oximeter.

ORi has not received FDA 510(k) clearance and is not available for sale in the United States.
