Masimo said the new sensors provide enhanced SpCO performance when a patient’s functional SpO2 is > 90%, as well as when their SpMet is < 2%.

SpCO is part of the Masimo rainbow SET platform to noninvasively and continuously measure total hemoglobin (SpHb), oxygen content (SpOC), carboxyhemoglobin (SpCO), methemoglobin (SpMet), pleth variability index(PVI) and acoustic respiration rate (RRa).

In addition, it measures ‘gold-standard’ Measure-Through Motion and Low Perfusion performance of Masimo SET oxyhemoglobin (SpO2), perfusion index (PI), and pulse rate (PR).

Available as Masimo Rad-57 (handheld) and Masimo Radical-7, Masimo Rad-87(bedside) devices, SpCO provides clinicians and emergency responders with a way to noninvasively evaluate and address the health and safety risks associated with CO poisoning helping to save and sustain lives, minimize suffering, and enhance safety.

The new, enhanced versions of the Masimo rainbow Reusable Direct Connect SpCO and DCI SpCO sensors will now be identified as ID code H.
