Researchers at Madigan Army Medical Center in Tacoma, Washington, US, have reported the accuracy and reliability of Masimo non-invasive and continuous haemoglobin (SpHb) monitoring for measuring haemoglobin and haemorrhage in operating rooms and intensive care units.

The study results showed an overall correlation between SpHb and laboratory values, with a low mean difference and decreased invasiveness of both elective surgery and critical illness while providing continuous haemoglobin monitoring.

Researchers concluded that due to the strong correlation seen between SpHb and laboratory haemoglobin, non-invasive haemoglobin monitoring is beneficial compared to standard pulse oximetry data.

The study findings indicated that non-invasive haemoglobin monitoring is important for high-risk, critically ill patients; patients undergoing high-risk operations; critically ill bleeding / transfused patients; and patients undergoing operations with a high expected blood loss.
