Masimo Scores CE Mark for RPVi Device
Devicemaker Masimo announced it was granted CE Mark approval for its multi-wavelength version of the Pleth Variability Index for monitoring changes in fluid volume.
The approved device, the RPVi, is a noninvasive continuous measurement device that monitors changes in the perfusion index during respiratory cycles. The changes can reflect of physiologic factors ranging from vascular tone to circulating blood volume.
The announcement comes the week after the company announced CE Mark approval for its Rainbow Super DCI-mini sensor, a reusable spot-check sensor with multiple physiologic measurements.
