How it works
rainbow SET® technology

Discover the benefits of noninvasive rainbow SET® technology


Philips patient monitors with integrated Masimo measurements work together to provide you with continuous visibility to core vital signs and advanced parameters like noninvasive hemoglobin (SpHb®), Pleth Variability Index (PVi®), and acoustic respiration rate (RRa®) at the point of care. So you can confidently provide the best patient experience possible – no matter where care takes place.

Common measurement parameters


SpO2 - measure of oxygen saturation even through motion and low perfusion


SpHb1 - provides continuous visibility to changes – or lack of changes – in hemoglobin levels between invasive blood samples


PVi - measure of the dynamic changes in the Perfusion Index (PERF) that occur during one or more respiratory cycles

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.
