Hamilton Medical Center Updates With Masimo Patient Monitoring Technologies

DALTON, Ga. and IRVINE, Calif., Oct. 1, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Masimo (NASDAQ: MASI) and Hamilton Medical Center in Dalton, Ga., announced today the hospital has updated to Masimo SET ® pulse oximetry and rainbow ® Pulse CO-Oximetry, offering clinicians demonstrably advanced noninvasive and continuous patient monitoring designed to improve patient outcomes while helping hospitals reduce costs.

"Hamilton Medical Center prides itself on offering some of the most advanced medical technology available," said Jeff Hughes, Hamilton's Director of Cardiopulmonary and Sleep Services. "We use Masimo because we found that its innovative patient-monitoring solutions outperform competing devices, particularly in challenging patient-care environments."

Masimo SET ® virtually eliminates false alarms 1 and increases a clinician's ability to detect life-threatening events. 2 Masimo rainbow ® SET ® allows clinicians to measure multiple blood constituents and other physiological parameters without time-consuming laboratory analysis, risk of blood contamination, hazardous medical waste, and patient discomfort associated with traditional blood tests, including total hemoglobin (SpHb®), oxygen content (SpOC™), carboxyhemoglobin (SpCO®), methemoglobin (SpMet®), Pleth Variability Index (PVI®), and acoustic respiration rate (RRa™), in addition to the Measure-Through Motion and Low Perfusion performance of Masimo SET® oxyhemoglobin (SpO 2), perfusion index (PI), and pulse rate (PR).

Hamilton Medical Center also has installed Masimo Patient SafetyNet™, clinically shown to reduce rapid response activations, intensive care unit (ICU) transfers, and deaths related to opioid-induced respiratory depression, while offering significant opportunity cost savings. 3 When a monitored patient's condition deteriorates, the Patient SafetyNet system alerts clinicians – prompting a potentially lifesaving response at the patient's bedside.

For the last two years, HealthGrades has named Hamilton Medical Center a Distinguished Hospital for Clinical Excellence – a prestigious distinction that places Hamilton Medical Center among the top 5% of hospitals nationwide for clinical performance.
