How it works
rainbow SET™ technology

Philips patient monitoring with Masimo technology provides noninvasive, continuous hemoglobin monitoring you can rely on – at the point of care. Maintain consistent visibility on your patient's condition between invasive hemoglobin samples. Streamline workflows and drive down costs while providing clinically proven patient monitoring across care settings.

“The rollout went well. The first step, and the one that seemed most important, was for caregivers to gain the conviction that these elements and their integration would provide a clinical advantage for patient safety, and this is a particularly important point, as well as for the ergonomics of care.”

Dr. Julien Pottecher,
Head of the Department of Anesthesia-Intensive Care & Perioperative Medicine, Strasbourg University Hospital, France

Horizon trends


Horizon trends clearly indicate timely changes in patient condition – to aid you to quickly identify meaningful clinical deviations and take appropriate actions.

Noninvasive rainbow SET technology

Advanced rainbow SET sensors utilize multiple wavelengths of light to measure total hemoglobin (SpHb), Pleth Variability Index (PVi), oxygen content (SpOC). carboxyhemoglobin (SpCO) and methemoglobin (SpMet) noninvasively and continuously.

Masimo clinical claims are referenced on this web page. All studies available at

(1) SpHb** monitoring is not intended to replace lab testing. Blood samples should be analyzed by lab instruments prior to clinical decision making.

(2) Transt . 2014. 5:237.DOl:10.4172/2155-9864.1000237

(3) Awada WN et al J Clin Mon it Comput. DOI 10.1007/s10877-015-9660-4.

*Study Protocol: In each group, if researchers noted SpHb trended downward below 10 g/dl, a red blood cell transfusion was started and continued until SpHb trended upward above 10 g/dl. The transfusion threshold of 10 g/dl was predetermined by the study protocol and may not be appropriate for all patients. Blood sampling was the same for the control and test group. Artertal blood was drawn from a 20 gauge radial.
