“Kite showcases the versatility and flexibility of Root,”Joe Kiani, founder and CEO of Masimo, said in a news release. “Our goal is to minimize clinician distraction and maximize focus on the patient and relevant data.”
Kite allows health providers to view Root data on larger screens and customized configurations, in settings including operating rooms, cardiac theaters, emergency rooms and other venues. Data can come from a variety of devices connected to Root, including the Radical-7 pulse CO-oximeter, the wearable, tetherless Radius-7 pulse CO-oximeter, and optional monitoring modules such as SedLine brain function monitoring, O3 regional oximetry and ISA capnography solutions. the monitoring parameters, waveforms, and other data they require for that patient and type of care or operation.
Health providers can customize Kite to show particular monitoring parameters, waveforms and other data, according to Masimo.
During an endoscopy, for example, clinicians through Kite may wish to display multiple metrics from the anesthetized patient on a large, centrally-located screen – and have the screen displayed in a preferred configuration. They could display brian function through SedLine, respiration through Acoustic Monitoring, and end-tidal carbon dioxide through ISA capnography. The screen could also display pulse oximetry and blood pressure.
The whole goal is to make it easier for health providers to do their jobs.
“Masimo software made it extremely easy to adjust the placement and size of the information on the screen to the satisfaction of both the surgeon and anesthesiologist,” said Dr. Don Marketto, DO, an anesthesiologist at Mountain View Regional Hospital in Las Cruces, N.M.
