NEUCHATEL, Switzerland--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Masimo (NASDAQ: MASI) announced today the CE marking of Next Generation SedLine® brain function monitoring for pediatric patients (1-18 years of age). With this clearance, the benefits of Next Generation SedLine are available for all patients one year old and above in CE mark countries. SedLine helps clinicians monitor the state of the brain under anesthesia with bilateral data acquisition and processing of four leads of electroencephalogram (EEG) signals.
SedLine uses a pediatric-specific signal processing engine to improve performance of Masimo’s processed EEG parameter, the Patient State Index (PSi), when monitoring pediatric patients one year old and above. The use and monitoring of anesthesia on pediatric patients can differ from its use on adults.1-2 Maintaining an appropriate level of anesthesia is key to preventing anesthesia-related events and enabling faster recovery.3 The PSi in SedLine, driven by its pediatric-specific engine, is uniquely suited to helping clinicians interpret the EEGs of this challenging population.
In addition to the newly announced pediatric-specific signal processing when used on pediatric patients, Next Generation SedLine offers significant improvements over original SedLine, including:
- A PSi with less susceptibility to electromyography (EMG) interference.
- A Multitaper Density Spectral Array (DSA), which may enhance visibility of EEG features.
Joe Kiani, Founder and CEO of Masimo, said, “Next Generation SedLine is doing for brain function monitoring what Masimo SET® did for pulse oximetry. We believe Next Generation SedLine is the best and most advanced way to monitor depth of sedation, crucial to helping ensure patients with even the most challenging brains are appropriately anesthetized. We are gratified that its benefits are now available to those younger patients whose brains are particularly delicate and to whose wellbeing Masimo has always been so committed.”
Next Generation SedLine has received FDA clearance for adults but is not currently indicated for pediatric patients in the USA.

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 over 100 independent and objective studies to outperform other pulse oximetry technologies.4 Masimo SET® has also been shown to help clinicians reduce severe retinopathy of prematurity in neonates,5 improve CCHD screening in newborns,6 and, when used for continuous monitoring with Masimo Patient SafetyNet™ in post-surgical wards, reduce rapid response activations and costs.7-9 Masimo SET® is estimated to be used on more than 100 million patients in leading hospitals and other healthcare settings around the world,10 and is the primary pulse oximetry at 9 of the top 10 hospitals listed in the 2018-19 U.S. News and World Report Best Hospitals Honor Roll.11 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.
