New Study Investigates the Clinical Utility of ORi™, Masimo Oxygen Reserve Index™, in Obese Patients

NEUCHATEL, SWITZERLAND--(Business Wire / Korea Newswire) January 23, 2018 -- Masimo (NASDAQ: MASI) announced today the findings of an abstract presented at the annual meeting of the Society for Technology in Anesthesia (STA) in Miami, Florida. In the study, researchers at the UC Davis School of Medicine evaluated the potential clinical utility of Masimo Oxygen Reserve Index™ (ORi™) as an early warning of impending arterial hemoglobin desaturation in obese patients.1 This is the first published research investigating the utility of ORi in this particular population group.
ORi is a relative indicator of a patient’s oxygen reserve in the moderate hyperoxic region (partial pressure of oxygen in arterial blood [PaO2] in the range of 100 to 200 mmHg). As an “index” parameter with a unit-less scale between 0 and 1, ORi can be trended and has optional alarms to notify clinicians of changes in a patient’s oxygen reserve.
In the prospective, observational study, Dr. Ayala and colleagues analyzed data from 36 adult patients with BMI between 30 and 40 kg/m2 who were scheduled for elective surgical procedures requiring general anesthesia and endotracheal intubation. The patients’ ORi values were measured using a Masimo Root® Patient Monitoring and Connectivity Platform with Radical-7® Pulse CO-Oximeter®. The researchers recorded the time elapsed from the start of ORi alarming (triggered by decrease in the absolute value and rate of change in ORi) to 98% oxygen saturation, and considered this interval to be the average increase in warning time provided by ORi.
The researchers found that among the patients, the average time from the start of ORi alarming to 98% oxygen saturation was 42 ± 49 seconds (ranging from 5 to 255 seconds). Excluding two outliers, the average increase in warning time provided by ORi was 33 ± 23 seconds (ranging from 5 to 107 seconds).
The researchers concluded that the study “demonstrates the ability of ORi to provide advanced warning of arterial desaturation as an adjunct to SpO2 in this high risk patient population. This additional warning time can potentially translate to improved patient safety by allowing earlier calls for help, assistance from a more experienced person, or modification of airway management. For this analysis we defined the advance warning to end at 98% SpO2, with a defined trigger for intervention at 94% SpO2.”
In another study, researchers at Children’s Medical Center in Dallas, Texas concluded that ORi could provide clinicians with a median of 31.5 seconds advanced warning of impending desaturation in pediatric patients with induced apnea after pre-oxygenation.2
UC Davis received funding from Masimo for the ORi study.
ORi has not received FDA 510(k) clearance and is not available for sale in the United States.

Masimo (NASDAQ: MASI) is a global leader in innovative noninvasive monitoring technologies. Our mission is to improve patient outcomes and reduce the cost of care. In 1995, the company debuted Masimo SET® Measure-through Motion and Low Perfusion™ pulse oximetry, which has been shown in multiple studies to significantly reduce false alarms and accurately monitor for true alarms. Masimo SET® has also been shown to help clinicians reduce severe retinopathy of prematurity in neonates,1 improve CCHD screening in newborns,2 and, when used for continuous monitoring with Masimo Patient SafetyNet™* in post-surgical wards, reduce rapid response activations and costs.3,4,5 Masimo SET® is estimated to be used on more than 100 million patients in leading hospitals and other healthcare settings around the world,6 and is the primary pulse oximetry at 17 of the top 20 hospitals listed in the 2017-18 U.S. News and World Report Best Hospitals Honor Roll.7 In 2005, Masimo introduced rainbow® Pulse CO-Oximetry technology, allowing noninvasive and continuous monitoring of blood constituents that previously could only be measured invasively, including total hemoglobin (SpHb®), oxygen content (SpOC™), carboxyhemoglobin (SpCO®), methemoglobin (SpMet®), Pleth Variability Index (PVi®), and more recently, Oxygen Reserve Index™ (ORi™), in addition to SpO2, pulse rate, and perfusion index (Pi). In 2014, Masimo introduced Root®, an intuitive patient monitoring and connectivity platform with the Masimo Open Connect™ (MOC-9™) interface, enabling other companies to augment Root with new features and measurement capabilities. Masimo is also taking an active leadership role in mHealth with products such as the Radius-7™ wearable patient monitor, iSpO2® pulse oximeter for smartphones, and the MightySat™ fingertip pulse oximeter.
