Trinity Medical Center in Alabama, US, has deployed Masimo Patient SafetyNet as a high vigilance safeguard for post-surgical patients.
The hospital will leverage Masimo SET Pulse Oximetry for oxygenation monitoring and Masimo rainbow acoustic monitoring for ventilation monitoring.
Trinity Medical Center president and CEO Keith Granger said, "Our clinicians are finding this equipment to be a valuable tool as we work to continue to improve patient care."
Masimo Patient SafetyNet has been shown to reduce rapid response activations and ICU transfers, offering significant potential cost savings.
Patient SafetyNet tracks the underlying physiological conditions of post-surgical patients, detects changes or abnormalities and sends wireless alerts to clinicians.
The rainbow acoustic monitoring system measures a patient’s respiration rate with the help of an adhesive sensor with an integrated acoustic transducer.
Acoustic Respiration Rate (RRa) enables earlier detection of respiratory compromise and patient distress.
With Patient SafetyNet the hospital gains compliance with The Joint Commission’s Sentinel Event Alert, which is focused on the recommendation to continuously monitor post-surgical patients for possible adverse opioid effects.
Masimo chairman and CEO Joe Kiani said the company works to improve patient safety and reduce healthcare costs.
"With Masimo technologies on the general floor, clinicians can be confident their patients are being safely monitored even when they aren’t at the bedside," Kiani added.
