A pulse oximeter is a medical device used to monitor the oxygen saturation of your blood. High oxygen saturation is critical to good health and many heart and pulmonary diseases first manifest with reduced oxygen saturation. Pulse oximeters are very useful for anyone with respiratory or cardiac problems such as Congestive Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) and they can aid in the diagnosis and monitoring of sleep disorders such as sleep apnea.
In hospitals pulse oximeters are typically attached to a medical monitor so that a patient's oxygenation can be monitored at all times. Most monitors also display the heart rate. Until recently, pulse oximeters were prohibitively expensive for home use but microelectronics has made portable, battery-operated pulse oximeters available for personal home monitoring. We've got one of the best available from Prestige Medical®, one of the world's leading suppliers of quality clinical equipment and supplies.
Our Pulse Oximeter is a light and compact way to measure both oxygen saturation (SpO2% percentage) and pulse rate with the finger. Extremely easy to operate, you just clip the Pulse Oximeter onto your index finger. Readings are instantaneous. It features a multi-color LED display and can run for more than 30 hours on one set of batteries. Batteries and lanyard included.
Features for this personal pulse oximeter monitor include:
The pulse oximeter can be a useful home monitoring tool for a variety of health conditions and now you can have one of your own at a reasonable cost.
