Enhanced Process of Care

The proven accuracy and reliability of Masimo SET pulse oximetry reduces cost by shifting the focus of clinicians from managing equipment to managing patient care.

"The number of ABG's obtained and the time to wean to a low FiO2 was nearly half.
This change in practice reduces the costs of oxygen supply and delivery and the associated
risk of morbidity from excessive oxygen exposure."
