Masimo, Dominion bury the hatchet in blood monitoring IP infringement suit

Diagnostic tech developer Masimo (NSDQ:MASI) and rival Dominion have settled a suit over blood monitoring patents, according to recently released court documents. The two companies said they reached a settlement deal over a suit brought against Masimo by Dominion claiming it infringed on patents related to noninvasive blood monitoring technology. The agreement does not include payments from either company, and leaves both sides to pay for their own legal costs, according to court documents. The settlement deal was signed by US District Judge Beth Freeman on Tuesday. Earlier this week, Masimo released results from a study exploring home pulse oximetry monitoring’s ability to serve as an initial screening method to determine which children with Down syndrome should be recommended to undergo sleep studies to diagnose obstructive sleep apnea.

DiscussionThe primary outcomes would be the improvement and/or reestablishment of the function of masticatory muscles and the physiological sleep variables in this target public since individuals with DS commonly present generalized muscular hypotonia and dysfunction of the oropharyngeal musculature. As a secondary outcome indicator, the impact of the applied therapies (NMES, MA, and OAm) on the salivary microbiological and physicochemical properties in DS individuals will also be assessed. Furthermore, the compliance of OAm usage will be measured through a thermosensitive microchip.Trial registrationRegistro Brasileiro de...

Abstract Sleep-Disordered Breathing in Childhood Abstract. One out of ten healthy children is a habitual snorer, and one fourth of snoring children suffer from obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS). While OSAS is widely recognized as a relevant social and health problem due to its negative impact on behavior and neurocognitive development, the medical significance of habitual snoring remains debated. Sleep-disordered breathing remains underestimated and underdiagnosed in childhood, in part due to the variability of clinical manifestations. This is particularly true for children with an underlying syndromal morbi...

AbstractPurposeThe aim of this study was to report on the successful application of upper airway stimulation (UAS) therapy in an adult Down syndrome (DS) patient with severe obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) intolerance.MethodsBaseline polysomnography (PSG) in a 23-year-old male OSA patient (body mass index (BMI) 24.4  kg/m2) revealed an apnea/hypopnea index (AHI) of 61.5 events/h and oxygen desaturation index (ODI) of 39.7 events/h. Based on the clinical examination, PSG and drug-induced sleep endoscopy, the patient fulfilled the formal inclusion criteria for UAS therapy: AH...

Masimo (NSDQ:MASI) yesterday released results from a study exploring home pulse oximetry monitoring’s ability to serve as an initial screening method to determine which children with Down syndrome should be recommended to undergo sleep studies to diagnose obstructive sleep apnea. The Irvine, Calif.-based company said that children with Down syndrome are at high risk of obstructive sleep apnea, which can only be reliably diagnosed using multichannel sleep studies, which are expensive and time-consuming. A total of 161 children with DS between 0.5 and 6 years old were selected for the trial, 25 of which were separ...

Conclusions:This is the first study to characterize treatment outcome in children with DS and OSA using computed tomography upper airway imaging. At baseline, children with more severe OSA had a smaller upper airway. Children with a less favorable response to adenotonsillectomy had a smaller volume of regions below the tonsils, which could be due to enlargement of the lingual tonsils, glossoptosis, or macroglossia.Commentary:A commentary on this article appears in this issue on page 501.Citation:Slaats MA, Loterman D, van Holsbeke C, Vos W, Van Hoorenbeeck K, de Backer J, de Backer W, Wojciechowski M, Boudewyns A, Verhulst...

Residual obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) after adenotonsillectomy (T&A) is a common problem in children with Down Syndrome (DS). Our objective was to describe trends in surgical and medical management of OSA in pediatric patients with DS, and to present an algorithmic approach to managing these children.
