Ranken Jordan Pediatric Bridge Hospital has upgraded its monitors to Radical-7, which features Masimo SET pulse oximetry.
In several studies, the Radical-7 Masimo SET Measure-through-Motion and Low Perfusion pulse oximetry was shown to significantly reduce false alarms and accurately monitor for true alarms.
Radical-7 uses Masimo’s noninvasive measurements with functionality designed to automate the process of care and allow clinicians to adapt to changing monitoring needs in individual patients and care areas.
The Masimo SET has been used on more than 100 million patients in leading hospitals.
According to researchers, Masimo SET in combination with changes in clinical practice led to a reduction in severe retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) in pre-term infants.
Ranken Jordan Pediatric Bridge Hospital president Laureen Tanner said: "For children with complex medical conditions such as brain injuries, congenital defects or complications due to premature birth, our hospital specialises in bridging the gap between traditional hospital treatments and going home.
"Breakthrough medical technology like this helps our team make the impossible possible on a daily basis."
In a trial carried out on newborns, researchers found that critical congenital heart disease (CCHD) was detected 63% of the time by standard screening and 83% of the time when screening with Masimo SET was added.
The company noted that Radical-7 allows hospitals to upgrade their monitor with other breakthrough measurements that are only available with Masimo rainbow technology.
Masimo founder Joe Kiani said: "The amazing team at Ranken Jordan Pediatric Bridge Hospital has been taking care of children with complex needs for over 70 years.
"They are the only paediatric sub-acute facility in Missouri and one of the largest in the Midwest.
"Performance in challenging situations is key and we are happy that their clinical team now has access to our flagship monitor.
"It is our privilege to help facilities like Ranken Jordan help kids and families safely transition from the acute care hospital to home."
