Lausanne University Hospital (CHUV) Anesthesiology Department Adopts Masimo W1 for Use in Preoperative P
Masimo MASI today announced that the Department of Anesthesiology at the Lausanne University Hospital (CHUV), one of Switzerland's premier academic institutions, has chosen to make the Masimo W1 advanced health tracking watch a key part of its pre-surgical patient assessment research program. This initiative, led by Professor Patrick Schoettker, Head of Anesthesiology at CHUV and a renowned expert in airway management, wireless monitoring, and the digital transformation of healthcare, is designed to help better inform anesthesiologists and surgical teams about their patients' physiological status prior to surgery, with the ultimate goal of improving patient outcomes. Masimo W1, which offers accurate, continuous measurements of key physiological parameters, is available in Europe as a medical device that integrates with the Masimo SafetyNet remote patient management platform.

Joe Kiani, Founder and CEO of Masimo, said, "We are excited to deepen our relationship with anesthesiologists at the CHUV and to help them leverage Masimo W1's health tracking capabilities to help perioperative teams establish more insightful baseline physiological data about their patients. The baseline data can then allow clinicians to know what is normal and abnormal for each patient they care for in the hospital. Also, with Masimo W1, they can remotely monitor the patient post surgery at home when appropriate and reduce how long the patient remains in the hospital. We appreciate Dr. Schoettker and his team for recognizing the role that our technology can play in helping his department and the CHUV provide even better care for patients undergoing surgery, and we look forward to seeing Masimo W1 make a true difference in the lives of their patients."
