Easton Hospital in Pennsylvania, US, will deploy the Masimo patient monitoring system to upgrade the hospital’s noninvasive patient monitoring capabilities.

The Masimo Patient SafetyNet and Masimo rainbow Pulse CO-Oximetry technology makes Easton the only full-service medical facility in the area equipped with Patient SafetyNet.

The Patient SafetyNet system will help clinicians to noninvasively and continuously measure and track the underlying physiological conditions of up to 80 patients on four floors with Signal Extraction Pulse Oximetry.

The system will also identify real-time changes and abnormalities which indicate deteriorating patient condition and automatically send wireless alerts to the clinicians concerned.

The Masimo Pronto CO-Oximeter will enable Easton Hospital clinicians to carry out noninvasive spot-checking of total hemoglobin (SpHb) along with SpO2, pulse rate, and perfusion index measurements.

The handheld Pronto is powered by Masimo rainbow SET technology, which provides real-time and continuous blood constituent measurements and respiration rate.

Masimo rainbow SET technology will also enable clinicians to assess patients and detect and treat adverse, potentially life-threatening conditions earlier.

Founded in 1890, Easton Hospital is a 254-bed acute care teaching hospital and offers an active emergency department which sees over 35,000 visits annually.
