Sedline (a Masimo company) ranked #20 Holder of Pervasive Neurotech Intellectual Property*



Sed­Line is a pro­duc­er of EEG mon­i­tor­ing devices that are used to deter­mine the state of a patient dur­ing anes­the­sia or seda­tion. Their prod­uct is based on research show­ing that EEG activ­i­ty fol­lows pre­dictable pat­terns as the brain falls asleep, and that these pat­terns are the same if an anes­thet­ic agent is used. By fil­ter­ing out arti­facts and apply­ing a PSI (Patient State Index) algo­rithm to the sig­nal, SED­Line’s device assigns a val­ue from 0 to 100, with 100 mean­ing the most awake. SED­Line was acquired by med­ical device com­pa­ny Masi­mo in 2010.
