Measuring blood oxygenation
Masimo says that its latest non-invasive patient monitoring parameter, dubbed "Oxygen Reserve Index" (ORI), could help clinicians in the early detection of an impending desaturation in patients receiving supplemental oxygen. Many of the company's products are based on the general principle of detecting blood oxygenation by measuring light absorption at two different wavelengths, the technology at the heart of the Philips dispute.
