    Does anyone actually use rainbow sensors. On the investor calls, it sounds like they are mixing board and monitor sales with sensor revenue. Doesn't seem like anyone actually uses the sensors other than the reps at shows and presentations. Is the revenue overstated? Perhaps that golden thread deserved a pull.

    Why else would they force Phillips to integrate the boards, so they can show what looks like customer demand for rainbow...

    Masimo sues Philips over medical monitors

    Masimo Corp. (NDSQ:MASI) filed a lawsuit accusing Philips Healthcare of infringing on patents for measuring blood oxygen levels with the IntelliVue line of noninvasive pulse oxymetry devices.

    This latest suit is part of a longer history between the two companies, including another Masimo lawsuit against Philips two years ago, Law360.com reported.

    The companies are also occasional partners. They announced last month that they had reached a long-term non-exclusive agreement to integrate Masimo’s rainbow SET technology into Philips Healthcare’s products.

    It’s one of those magic Masi pretzel-puzzles. Don’t be a hero and think you can solve the thing or question whether it should be allowed or not. The only advice I can offer you is the same I’d have to offer anyone facing a problematic situation that’s been influenced by, or financially supported by Masimo or its founder & CEO Joe Kiani: Maintain a steady flow of outbound resumes at all times and watch your back like a paranoid schizo. With regard to the preservation of patient care,
    do as joe says, not what he does.
