PARIS - Friday, November 13th 2015 [ME NewsWire]

(BUSINESS WIRE)-- For its 19th edition, the exhibition Milipol Paris 2015 reveals the latest worldwide market figures for security, published by the Atlas En Toute Sécurité (1)

The global security market in its broadest definition has, for the first time, surpassed the 500 billion euro mark in 2014 (507 billion): 5.8% against 5.2% the previous year.

Largely dependent on the economic climate and the increase of terrorist threats, the pace of growth in the industry has evolved erratically over the past fifteen years: it was about 7% per year during its best period (2000 to 2008), but suddenly fell to 1% in 2009, to stabilise around 5% at the beginning of this decade.

2015 is expected to follow the same line, with an increase in growth around 6%. However disparities seem to show up by region: growth should continue at a steady pace in North America. In Asia, a new key market for safety, it will be less pro ... Read more »

IRVINE, Calif. - Friday, November 13th 2015 [ME NewsWire]

(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Masimo (NASDAQ: MASI) announced today that in a new study that compared the end tidal carbon dioxide values (EtCO2) from both the Masimo EMMA capnograph and a conventional sidestream capnography device to the gold-standard carbon dioxide measurement, arterial blood gas (PaCO2), EMMA produced “reliable” values and had similar accuracy as sidestream capnography.1

Carbon dioxide levels in the blood reflect the degree of gas exchange occurring in the lungs and provide a critical indicator of cardio-respiratory function that aids in the assessment of the adequacy of ventilation. PaCO2 is considered the gold standard to measure carbon dioxide levels but requires invasive blood sampling and laboratory analysis that can provide intermittent and delayed measurements. EtCO2 monitoring with capnography provides a noninvasive and continuous estimate of PaCO2 and has become a standard of care ... Read more »
