Tuesday, April 18, 2023
Masimo announced that the Rad-G® with Temperature has received FDA 510(k) clearance. Rad-G with Temperature is a rugged, versatile, handheld monitor that provides clinically proven SET® pulse oximetry, respiration rate from the pleth (RRp®), and other important parameters alongside non-contact infrared clinical thermometry.
Rad-G with Temperature is designed for use in a variety of settings, including physicians’ offices, outpatient services, urgent care facilities, wellness clinics, and in first-responder scenarios, both indoors and in the field.
The infrared thermometry offered by Rad-G with Temperature provides a host of benefits. Rad-G’s thermometer is non-contact and does not require probe covers or other disposable accessories. Its integration into the Rad-G platform eliminates the need for clinicians to locate a separate clinical thermometer to take body temperature measurements and ensures that many people can be seamlessly and efficiently screened for temperature, with one-touch operation, alongside oxygen saturation, respiration rate, and more, in the same session, using a single device.
Designed from the start to maximize portability and battery life, Rad-G’s rechargeable battery provides an impressive 24 hours of operational use between charges – allowing clinicians to work in transport, emergency, and other challenging scenarios with confidence that the device will continue to function hour after hour.
With its long-lasting rechargeable battery, robust rubber casing, light weight, and the added convenience of integrated noninvasive forehead thermometry, Rad-G with Temperature makes it easier for care teams to quickly measure vital signs using a single, compact, portable device and make informed decisions anywhere patient assessment is needed.
