Masimo Rad-8 Features
A: Signal I.Q.® (SIQ) bar is a signal quality indicator, most useful during motion and low perfusion situations. The LED rises and falls with the pulse, its height indicating signal quality.When Signal IQ is low, the display turns red, identifying suspect SpO2 and Pulse Rate values.B: The Alarm Status Indicatorflashes when an alarm condition is present.
- Sleep Mode easily configures system to perform bedside studies
- 2 second averaging in sleep mode
- Home Mode allows for safe and accurate monitoring and trending at home
- RadNet® and RadLink® interface capability for multi-patient remote monitoring
- Perfusion Index (PI) indicates arterial pulse signal strength and may be used as a diagnostic tool during low perfusion1
- Low Signal IQ® (SIQ) indicator highlights conditions of low signal quality
- FastSat™ tracks rapid changes in arterial O2with high fidelity unlike any other pulse oximeter
- APOD™ (Adaptive Probe Off Detection) offers the best probe off detection of Masimo’s three sensitivity modes – APOD, Normal and MAX sensitivity
- Adjustable averaging 2 to 16 seconds
- Nurse call interface
- Up to 7 hours of internal battery life when fully charged
- 72 hours of trending memory
- Available in horizontal and vertical configurations
- Compatible with Philips Vuelink device interface module
C: Perfusion Index (PI) indicates arterial pulse signal strength. PI may be used as a diagnostic tool during low perfusion for the accurate prediction of illness severity.2 The PI display is green when perfusion index is greater than or equal to 0.5 (left graphic) while the PI display is red when perfusion index is less than 0.5.
One touch alarm limits access
Rad-8 Back Panel: Serial output to compatible devices and nurse call interface.
What’s the Difference?
What makes Masimo SET different than other (conventional) pulse oximetry?
Conventional pulse oximetry assumes that arterial blood is the only blood moving (pulsating) in the measurement site. During patient motion, the venous blood also moves, which causes conventional pulse oximetry to under-read because it cannot distinguish between the arterial and venous blood. Masimo SET signal processing identifies the venous blood signal, isolates it, and using adaptive filters, cancels the noise and extracts the arterial signal. It then reports the true arterial oxygen saturation and pulse rate.
Conventional Pulse Oximetry provides inaccurate monitoring or signal dropout during:
Patient Motion or Movement
Low Perfusion (low signal amplitude)
Intense Ambient Light (lighting or sunlight)
Electrosurgical Instrument Interference
Masimo SET pulse oximetry works accurately where conventional pulse oximetry tends to fail. More than 100 independent and objective peer-reviewed clinical studies published and presented in internationally respected forums and numerous additional studies in progress document the significantly superior performance of Masimo SET Pulse Oximetry. The technical innovations that are the basis of the Masimo SET Pulse Oximetry system and Masimo LNOP® SpO2 sensors are addressed by approximately 200 patents issued and pending in the United States and other key countries.
