Masimo (NASDAQ: MASI) announced today that Radius Capnography™, a portable real-time capnograph with wireless Bluetooth® connectivity, has received CE marking. Radius Capnography connects with the Root® Patient Monitoring and Connectivity Platform to provide seamless, tetherless mainstream capnography for patients of all ages. Radius Capnography is the second wireless sensor created by Masimo, joining Radius PPG™, or Radius Photoplethysmography, the first tetherless sensor solution to offer Masimo SET® Measure-through Motion and Low Perfusion™ pulse oximetry.

Radius Capnography requires no routine calibration and minimal warm-up time, with fully accurate EtCO2 and respiration rate measurements and continuous EtCO2 waveforms displayed within 15 seconds.1
Wirelessly connected to Root, Radius Capnography presents a compelling mainstream capnography solution:
American Heart Association guidelines recommend continuous quantitative waveform capnography, in addition to clinical assessment, to help clinicians confirm endotracheal tube placement3, assess the depth and effectiveness of chest compressions during CPR4, and recognize the return of spontaneous circulation during CPR.4
Root is a powerful, expandable hub that integrates an array of technologies, devices, and systems to provide multimodal monitoring and connectivity solutions. Root’s plug-and-play expansion capabilities allow clinicians to simultaneously monitor with Radius Capnography and other measurements, such as Radius PPG SET® Measure-through Motion and Low Perfusion pulse oximetry and advanced rainbow® Pulse CO-Oximetry measurements, for expanded visibility of patient status.
Joe Kiani, Founder and CEO of Masimo, said, “We’re happy to introduce the second tetherless, cableless sensor for Root, Radius Capnography. With this CE marking, the advanced connectivity of Radius Capnography is now available in both the US and CE-marked countries, bringing the power of Masimo capnography to even more hospitals around the world.”

Masimo (NASDAQ: MASI) is a global medical technology company that develops and produces a wide array of industry-leading monitoring technologies, including innovative measurements, sensors, patient monitors, and automation and connectivity solutions. Our mission is to improve patient outcomes and reduce the cost of care. Masimo SET® Measure-through Motion and Low Perfusion™ pulse oximetry, introduced in 1995, has been shown in over 100 independent and objective studies to outperform other pulse oximetry technologies.5 Masimo SET® has also been shown to help clinicians reduce severe retinopathy of prematurity in neonates,6 improve CCHD screening in newborns,7 and, when used for continuous monitoring with Masimo Patient SafetyNet™ in post-surgical wards, reduce rapid response team activations, ICU transfers, and costs.8-10 Masimo SET® is estimated to be used on more than 100 million patients in leading hospitals and other healthcare settings around the world,11 and is the primary pulse oximetry at 9 of the top 10 hospitals according to the 2019-20 U.S. News and World Report Best Hospitals Honor Roll.12 Masimo continues to refine SET® and in 2018, announced that SpO2 accuracy on RD SET® sensors during conditions of motion has been significantly improved, providing clinicians with even greater confidence that the SpO2 values they rely on accurately reflect a patient’s physiological status. In 2005, Masimo introduced rainbow® Pulse CO-Oximetry technology, allowing noninvasive and continuous monitoring of blood constituents that previously could only be measured invasively, including total hemoglobin (SpHb®), oxygen content (SpOC™), carboxyhemoglobin (SpCO®), methemoglobin (SpMet®), Pleth Variability Index (PVi®), RPVi™ (rainbow® PVi), and Oxygen Reserve Index (ORi™). In 2013, Masimo introduced the Root® Patient Monitoring and Connectivity Platform, built from the ground up to be as flexible and expandable as possible to facilitate the addition of other Masimo and third-party monitoring technologies; key Masimo additions include Next Generation SedLine® Brain Function Monitoring, O3® Regional Oximetry, and ISA™ Capnography with NomoLine® sampling lines. Masimo’s family of continuous and spot-check monitoring Pulse CO-Oximeters® includes devices designed for use in a variety of clinical and non-clinical scenarios, including tetherless, wearable technology, such as Radius-7® and Radius PPG™, portable devices like Rad-67™, fingertip pulse oximeters like MightySat® Rx, and devices available for use both in the hospital and at home, such as Rad-97®. Masimo hospital automation and connectivity solutions are centered around the Iris® platform, and include Iris Gateway®, Patient SafetyNet, Replica™, Halo ION™, UniView™, and Doctella™.
