Masimo Announces FDA Clearance of Root Patient Monitoring Platform With Capnography, IRIS Standalone Device Connectivity, and MOC-9 Third-Party Measurement Expansion
High-impact innovations in Root that are now available in the U.S. include:
Iris™ - Built-in connectivity gateway through Iris™ for standalone devices such as IV pumps, ventilators, hospital beds, and other patient monitors
MOC-9™ - Flexible measurement expansion through Masimo Open Connect™ (MOC-9™) with MOC-9 modules from
Capnography - ISA™ CO2 sidestream module featuring fast warm up time and the innovative and cost-effective Nomoline™ sampling line
Wireless functionality - Capable of transmitting information through Bluetooth and Wi-Fi.
Built-in Connectivity Gateway through Iris™
Despite medical technology advances, the lack of device communication and integration creates risks to patient safety in hospitals around the world. Without device interoperability, critical patient information can go unnoticed -- leaving busy clinicians in the dark and vulnerable patients in danger. Existing approaches for device interoperability require separate hardware, software, and/or network infrastructure, which can clutter the patient room, increase complexity, burden IT management, and increase costs.
To address these challenges, each Root can be used as a connectivity gateway to connect multiple standalone devices -- such as IV pumps, ventilators, hospital beds, and other patient monitors -- when used as part of the optional Iris connectivity package in Masimo Patient SafetyNet™. Iris allows standalone device information to be remotely viewed with Patient SafetyNet, transmitted through notification systems or sent to electronic health record (EHR) systems to facilitate better patient care. Iris connectivity enables standalone devices to leveage existing network infrastructure and reduce costs while enhancing clinical workflows and decision support to improve patient safety, whether the clinician is at the bedside, down the hall, or across the globe.
ISA Capnography MOC-9 Module
The ISA CO2 module for Root provides ETCO2 and respiratory rate measurements with crisp waveforms and fast warm up time. In addition, customers can use the Nomoline™ "No Moisture" fluid protection sample line, which is specially designed for low-flow applications and excellent response time -- making gas measurement possible even at high respiratory rates. Nomoline supports single-patient use in high humidity environments or multi-patient use in lower-humidity environments to reduce disposable costs, and can be used for all types of patients from infants to adults.
MOC-9: Designed for
Root is also designed to allow other companies to expand the platform's measurements with their own measurements through MOC-9 by following
Market barriers and development costs often keep small, innovative companies from delivering their products to clinicians and patients who need them most. With Root's accessible patient monitoring platform,
