Masimo receives FDA clearance of Rad-G Pulse Oximeter
Masimo has received FDA clearance of the Rad-G Pulse Oximeter, a rugged handheld device that provides clinically proven SET pulse oximetry, respiration rate from the pleth (RRp), and other vital parameters for both spot-checking and continuous monitoring. With its long-lasting rechargeable battery, robust rubber casing, light weight, and a convenient new direct-connect sensor capable of monitoring both adults and children, Rad-G makes it easier for clinicians to quickly assess patients and make informed decisions anywhere pulse oximetry or vital signs checking is needed. Providing the ultimate in handheld versatility, Rad-G can be used in a variety of settings, including but not limited to physicians’ offices, outpatient services, long-term care facilities, wellness clinics, first-response scenarios, and limited-resource environments.
Launching alongside the device, the new multipurpose, direct-connect Rad-G Sensor is indicated for monitoring both adult and paediatric patients. By eliminating the need to stock and carry multiple sensor types, the Rad-G Sensor further increases Rad-G’s versatility and ease of use, especially in more challenging field environments. In addition to this innovative new sensor, Rad-G is compatible with the vast portfolio of Masimo reusable and single-patient-use sensors, maximizing its flexibility and offering clinicians the ability to customize the solution based on the unique needs of each care setting.
The high-resolution screen displays a continuous pleth waveform and its fully configurable, audible alarms help alert clinicians to changes in patient status that may require their intervention.
In addition to Masimo SET oxygen saturation (SpO2), pulse rate (PR), perfusion index (Pi), and pleth variability index (PVi), Rad-G is also notable for its ability to use the same sensor to monitor respiration rate from the plethysmograph, with RRp. SpO2 and PR monitoring on Rad-G is provided using clinically proven Masimo SET Measure-through Motion and Low Perfusion pulse oximetry.
