“I saw and was conquered. I was not able to defeat the Masimo SET® pulse oximeter using all the motion and low pulse tricks I know. This technology is most impressive and should be available in all oximeters.”
John Severinghaus, M.D.
Professor of Anesthesiology, Emeritus University of California, San Francisco
*Results shown are calculated by combining sensitivity and specificity outcomes of machine-generated and volunteer-generated motion.
