I was a first gen paramedic, left the biz after 21 yrs and Pulse Ox was just getting on board ambulances at the time 93-94. This will truly be an important improvement and save a lot of time especially in ICU's and CCU's. In some cases the time it takes for a blood test is the time it takes to lose a patient. The 15k version will easily pay for itself in the first year of use.
Hooray for Masimo..and thanks for the helpful tech!
I'm currently looking for a robotic teardown candidate for an EETimes robotics special edition. Any and all suggestions welcome, here or by email or twitter at email@example.com and @Patrick_Mannion, respectively. Thanks!
