Masimo Lands Clearance for Root With Noninvasive Blood Pressure, Temperature Measurements

Feb. 18, 2016

Masimo has scored FDA 510(k) clearance for noninvasive blood pressure and temperature measurements for the Root monitoring system, which also features multimedia.

The system allows arterial blood pressure to be measured in three different ways — spot-check, automatic interval and stat interval. Root lets clinicians chart vital sign data automatically. It also sends the information directly to a patient’s electronic medical record. — Anisa Jibrell
