Masimo SET ® Measure-through Motion and Low Perfusion™ pulse oximetry is used to monitor millions of patients around the world. This project demonstrates the company's strong commitment to reducing the unnecessarily high global burden of pneumonia by bringing its proven patient screening and monitoring technology to the areas of the world that need it most."We are gratified to be able to partner with BMGF, which recently joined us in co-founding the United for Oxygen Alliance to increase access to oxygen and pulse oximetry in Ethiopia, in supporting our efforts to help fight pneumonia," said Joe Kiani, Founder and CEO of Masimo. "We hope to bring a much-needed screening tool to areas of the world blighted by countless needless deaths that are due to an illness considered low-risk in the developed world." @MasimoInnovates | #Masimo References
