MORIOKA, Japan--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Masimo (NASDAQ: MASI) announced today the findings of a study in which researchers evaluated the ability of Masimo ORi™ (Oxygen Reserve Index) to detect declining blood oxygenation prior to standard oxygen saturation (SpO2) monitoring in patients undergoing elective thoracic surgery requiring one-lung ventilation (OLV).1
ORi is a noninvasive, relative indicator of a patient’s oxygen reserve in the moderate hyperoxic region (partial pressure of oxygen in arterial blood [PaO2] in the range of 100 to 200 mmHg). As an “index” parameter with a unit-less scale between 0 and 1, ORi can be trended and has optional alarms to notify clinicians of changes in a patient’s oxygen reserve.
In the study, Dr. Koishi and colleagues at Iwate Medical University in Morioka, Japan sought to evaluate whether ORi could serve as an early warning of desaturation in patients undergoing OLV, as such patients are often prone to hypoxemia. To this end, they assessed whether ORi decreased earlier than SpO2 during OLV, and evaluated how well ORi correlated with an invasive PaO2 measurement. ORi and SpO2 were measured every 2 seconds using a Masimo Root® with Radical-7® Pulse CO-Oximeter® and rainbow® sensors (revision L). The anesthesiologist was blinded to the ORi values. For data analysis, the researchers defined the start of the decrease in ORi as when its value fell below 0.05 less than its highest value after OLV began, and the start of the decrease in SpO2 as when it was 1% less than the maximum SpO2 value. PaO2 was calculated as part of blood gas analysis and performed every 3 minutes during OLV, resulting in 101 pairs of measurements.
The researchers found that from the start of OLV, ORi started decreasing significantly sooner than SpO2, a mean of 171 seconds vs. a mean of 372 seconds, p<0.01 (standard deviation of 102 and 231 seconds, respectively). They also found “a significant, strong correlation” between ORi and PaO2: r2=0.671, p<0.01.
The researchers concluded, “ORi decreased significantly earlier than SpO2 during OLV, suggesting that monitoring ORi might allow earlier detection of a deterioration of blood oxygenation than monitoring SpO2 alone, contributing to a reduction in the patient’s risk of exposure to complications from OLV. However, further studies in different clinical and experimental settings are needed to evaluate the superiority of the ORi over SpO2.”
ORi has not received FDA 510(k) clearance and is not yet available for sale in the United States.

Masimo (NASDAQ: MASI) is a global leader in innovative noninvasive monitoring technologies. Our mission is to improve patient outcomes and reduce the cost of care. In 1995, the company debuted Masimo SET® Measure-through Motion and Low Perfusion™ pulse oximetry, which has been shown in multiple studies to significantly reduce false alarms and accurately monitor for true alarms. Masimo SET® has also been shown to help clinicians reduce severe retinopathy of prematurity in neonates,1 improve CCHD screening in newborns,2 and, when used for continuous monitoring with Masimo Patient SafetyNet™* in post-surgical wards, reduce rapid response activations and costs.3,4,5 Masimo SET® is estimated to be used on more than 100 million patients in leading hospitals and other healthcare settings around the world,6 and is the primary pulse oximetry at 17 of the top 20 hospitals listed in the 2017-18 U.S. News and World Report Best Hospitals Honor Roll.7 In 2005, Masimo introduced rainbow® Pulse CO-Oximetry technology, allowing noninvasive and continuous monitoring of blood constituents that previously could only be measured invasively, including total hemoglobin (SpHb®), oxygen content (SpOC™), carboxyhemoglobin (SpCO®), methemoglobin (SpMet®), Pleth Variability Index (PVi®), and more recently, Oxygen Reserve Index (ORi™), in addition to SpO2, pulse rate, and perfusion index (Pi). In 2014, Masimo introduced Root®, an intuitive patient monitoring and connectivity platform with the Masimo Open Connect® (MOC-9®) interface, enabling other companies to augment Root with new features and measurement capabilities. Masimo is also taking an active leadership role in mHealth with products such as the Radius-7® wearable patient monitor, iSpO2® pulse oximeter for smartphones, and the MightySat™ fingertip pulse oximeter.
