United Arab Emirates Ministry of Health & Prevention Adopts National CCHD Newborn Screening Program Using Masimo Rad-97™ Pulse CO-Oximeters® with Eve™

Jaa

Masimo (NASDAQ: MASI) announced today that the United Arab Emirates (UAE) Ministry of Health & Prevention (MOHAP) is adopting a national screening protocol for critical congenital heart disease (CCHD) for all newborns. As part of the program launch, the MOHAP is equipping 9 hospitals across 5 emirates, serving 50% of the UAE population, with Masimo Rad-97™ Pulse CO-Oximeters® with Eve™ CCHD Newborn Screening Application. Newborns delivered at these hospitals will now be screened for CCHD using Eve – the first large-scale installation of Eve on Rad-97, which received CE marking earlier this year.

CCHD affects approximately 2.5 to 3 newborns per 1000 live births1 and requires intervention soon after birth to prevent significant morbidity or mortality; later detection in infants also increases the risk of brain damage.2 In a study of 39,821 infants, CCHD screening sensitivity increased from 63% with physical exam alone to 83% with physical exam and Masimo SET® pulse oximetry.3 In a study of 122,738 infants – the largest CCHD screening study to date – CCHD screening sensitivity increased from 77% to 93% with the combined use of Masimo SET® and clinical assessment.4

Eve, also available on the Radical-7® Pulse CO-Oximeter, combines the power of Masimo SET® Measure-through Motion and Low Perfusion™ pulse oximetry with an automated pre- to post-ductal synchronization algorithm designed to reduce calculation errors. In addition, Eve simplifies the CCHD screening process by providing visual instructions, animations, and a detailed, easy-to-interpret display of screening results. The ability to label results with unique patient identifiers for both mother and newborn facilitates intuitive session management and seamless electronic charting. Eve also allows clinicians to incorporate perfusion index into screening, which has been shown to increase sensitivity to the detection of CCHD in infants with pathologically low perfusion.5

Masimo worked closely with the UAE to implement the MOHAP program, including onsite training for doctors, nurses, and midwives at each hospital. H.E. Dr. Yousif Al Serkal, Assistant Undersecretary for the Hospitals Sector, emphasized the Ministry’s strategy of “providing comprehensive and innovative health services in accordance with the highest standards of excellence, professionalism, and leadership in the health sector. The goal of the ‘Newborn Critical Congenital Heart Screening Program’ is to ensure that all UAE newborns are screened, and all affected infants receive appropriate confirmatory testing, counseling, and treatment to prevent complications and reduce mortality.” He noted that the program has a comprehensive database and e-system for the registration of all screening test results, as well as helping to control quality and track performance through periodic reporting. Dr. Kalthoom Al Balooshi, Director of the Hospitals Department, explained that “the screening initiative will be implemented in nine main hospitals, which includes screening with pulse oximetry, a CCHD screening database, integrated EMR solutions, and awareness programs for physicians, nurses, and parents.”

Jon Coleman, President of Worldwide Sales, Professional Services, and Medical Affairs for Masimo, said, “We are honored that the UAE chose Masimo to help implement this vital newborn screening process for their citizens. Masimo SET® performance and accuracy have helped to usher in reliable and cost-effective CCHD screening, as shown in the multiple studies concluding that SET® pulse oximetry, combined with clinical assessment, significantly improved CCHD screening sensitivity. We believe that Masimo SET® pulse oximetry and the Eve CCHD Screening App make for a compelling combination, and hope that more institutions and governments around the world will recognize the importance of helping their youngest patients get a great start in life.”

Rad-97 offers Masimo noninvasive and continuous monitoring, through Measure-through Motion and Low Perfusion SET® pulse oximetry and upgradeable rainbow® technology, in a compact, standalone monitor that incorporates advanced customizability, connectivity, and device integration capabilities. In addition to Eve, Rad-97 is also available in configurations with integrated noninvasive blood pressure measurement and integrated NomoLine™ capnography.
