Manipal Hospitals in India has introduced Masimo’s remote monitoring and clinician notification system, Patient SafetyNet.

It is said to be the first hospital in India to incorporate the technology.

The Masimo Patient SafetyNet generates near real-time information from any connected Masimo device at a central station and triggers an alarm from bedside devices to alert clinicians via pager or third party gateway to internet protocol (IP) phones.

Manipal Health Enterprises senior president Nagendra Swamy said: "The technology will notify the hospital team when there are signs of deterioration and allow our patients to be monitored even though the nurse is not physically in the room with them."

Masimo Patient SafetyNet operates while being networked with Masimo bedside monitors, which provides continuous and noninvasive monitoring of oxygen saturation (SpO2), pulse rate, respiration rate and other parameters.

"One of the key features of this system is its proprietary signal extraction technology (SET) that helps significantly reduce false alarms."

Manipal Hospitals CEO Gopal Devanahalli said: "With Patient SafetyNet, we are now able to monitor a certain set of patients 24/7.

"One of the key features of this system is its proprietary signal extraction technology (SET) that helps significantly reduce false alarms."

The equipment is fitted with rainbow acoustic monitoring to promote an accurate mapping of a patient’s respiratory rate and enhanced patient tolerance, or standard capnography.

Continuous patient surveillance by Masimo Patient SafetyNet is said to have decreased the need for rescue events and intensive care unit transfers in hospitals, subsequently reducing the expenditure incurred.

The technology has also been deployed by Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Centre in the US.
