Obstructive Sleep Apnea - Diagnosis - Home Oximetry
... likelihood of having OSA, a randomized controlled trial found that home oximetry (a non-invasive method of monitoring blood oxygenation) may be ... Home oximetry, however, does not measure apneic events or respiratory event-related arousals and thus does not produce an AHI value ...
Joe Kiani - Career At Masimo
... Pulse oximetry is one of the most common monitoring technologies used in healthcare ... Masimo makes a pulse oximetry technology known as Signal Extraction Technology (SET), which is known as being the first pulse oximemtry technology to ... industry-first technologies include rainbow Pulse CO-Oximetry, which noninvasively and continuously measures blood constituents and physiological parameters that previously required invasive ...
Pulse Oximetry - Indication - Limitations
... Pulse oximetry measures solely oxygenation, not ventilation and is not a complete measure of respiratory sufficiency ... Pulse oximetry technologies differ in their abilities to provide accurate data during conditions of motion and low perfusion ... Pulse oximetry also is not a complete measure of circulatory sufficiency ...
Sleep Apnea - Diagnosis - Oximetry
... Oximetry, which may be performed overnight in a patient's home, is an easier alternative to formal sleep study (polysomnography) ... In one study, normal overnight oximetry was very sensitive and so if normal, sleep apnea was unlikely ... In addition, home oximetry may be equally effective in guiding prescription for automatically self-adjusting continuous positive airway pressure ...
Masimo SET Pulse Oximetry
... Conventional pulse oximetry assumes that arterial blood is the only blood moving (pulsating) in the measurement site ... blood also moves, which can cause conventional pulse oximetry to under-read arterial oxygen saturation levels because it cannot distinguish between the arterial and venous blood ... Multiple studies have shown that Masimo SET increases pulse oximetry's ability to detect life threatening events and reduce false alarms ...
