Saadat has CE marked its Aria portable patient monitor for sale in Europe. The device is the first of its kind to include Masimo's Rainbow SET pulse co-oximetry technology, the firms claim. This technology can detect anaemia, internal bleeding, fluid responsiveness and other potentially life-threatening conditions noninvasively and in real time. It avoids the drawbacks associated with conventional invasive blood testing, such as the delay when sending samples to the lab for analysis. Aria is "cost-effective and lightweight" at less than 0.9kg, and is designed to monitor vital signs in all care areas and during transport, according to Tehran, Iran-based Saadat.
