Check your pulse with an iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch

Masimo launches a commercial pulse oximeter compatible with Apple’s latest smart devices

Irvine’s leading medical technology firm, Masimo, is breaking through technology once again with its latest innovation and the debut of the iSpO2 pulse oximeter cable and sensor with Measure-Through Motion and Low Perfusion Masimo SET for use with an iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch.

The iSpO2 will provide athletes along with airplane pilots and even passengers with the latest technology of pulse oximeters used in leading hospitals around the world. The device will give active users the opportunity to check their own blood oxygen level, pulse rate and perfusion index measurements. The iSpO2 is not intended for medical use.

With the purchase of the Masimo iSpO2, the connection of an iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch and a free downloadable application, users simply connect the device to one of the smart objects, slip the iSp02 sensor on their finger and the results will automatically appear on the screen. The application will then allow one to track their oxygen saturation and pulse rate measurements over time, even during movement and low blood flow to the finger. Data history can be viewed through a color display with graphs to monitor trending over time along with the ability to share the date through email and file exports to use with text edit and spreadsheet programs such as Microsoft Excel.

"Masimo was founded on a mission to take noninvasive monitoring to new sites and applications," said Masimo founder and CEO Joe Kiani. "The iSpO2 for iPhone, iPad or iPod touch with 30-pin connector represents our first consumer product and should create myriad new possibilities with the goal of further empowering people."
