Leading-edge Masimo medical devices on display at Arab Health include: Radical-7 The 2012 Radical-7 empowers clinicians to improve patient outcomes and reduce the cost of care in multiple ways, such as reducing blood transfusion-related costs and detecting bleeding earlier with noninvasive total hemoglobin (SpHb), optimizing fluid management with Pleth Variability Index (PVI), and enabling reliable detection of respiratory depression with acoustic respiration rate (RRa (TM)).
The Health Centre also has the option to upgrade at any time to Masimo rainbowA Pulse CO-Oximetry , which allows clinicians to noninvasively monitor multiple blood constituents that previously required invasive or complicated procedures, including total hemoglobin (SpHbA), oxygen content (SpOC ), carboxyhemoglobin (SpCOA), methemoglobin (SpMetA), Pleth Variability Index (PVIA), and acoustic respiration rate (RRa ).
Standardization of hemoglobinometry on the basis of spectrophotometric determination of methemoglobincyanide, a stable hemoglobin derivative into which all hemoglobin derivatives usually present in the blood can be easily converted, involved an understanding that the total hemoglobin concentration (ctHb) includes the inactive (non-oxygen-binding) derivatives.
