This easy to use Oximeter is a perfect device for home monitoring of blood oxygen levels. The device is simply placed on to the users finger with results displayed on the OLED screen.
The easy to read screen displays Sp02, PR, pulse bar and plethysmogram which allows you to monitor a number of conditions with ease. The device can be used by both adults and children and can help give early indications of respiratory infections before other symptoms occur.
After use the oximeter automatically turns off and also displays a low battery indicator when it is time to change batteries. The device comes with a lanyard making it ideal for taking out and about with ease.
This oximeter is ideal for those with a number of respiratory conditions such as COPD as well as being an essential piece of kit for almost any home. Fingertip Pulse Oximeters are non-invasive and can provide you with an early indication of infections, medical conditions as well as being a key tool to help pre-empt medical attention.
Oximeters work by simply firing infra-red light rays through the fingertip and in turn measure the amount of oxygen in the blood. This is achieved by comparing the difference in light absorption between oxygenated and deoxygenated blood. The reading you see on the display is simply the percentage of oxygenated blood. The ideal number to see displayed is as close to 100% as possible.
Any reading below 92-93% for sustained periods of time suggest an issue which should be highlighted to a medical professional.
This fingertip oximeter also measures the wearers pulse which can also provide a good guide for medical conditions or other issues. The pulse is displayed as a visual bar as well as a number (bpm). The oximeter should be worn on the forefinger or middle finger for best results and the hand should be resting on a surface in a relaxed position to allow the best possible blood flow.
This oximeter is powered by 2x AAA batteries (not included).
