What does a finger pulse oximeter do?
The finger pulse oximeter’s primary function is to measure oxygen saturation in an individual's blood. In addition to SpO2 (oxygen saturation) and the device also reads pulse rate. Oxygen saturation indicates how much oxygen is being carried in the bloodstream and being transferred throughout the body.
How do I use a pulse oximeter?
Be sure that testing finger is clean as well as the finger sensor pad on your pulse oximeter. Rest your arm on a flat surface, and open clamp to insert test finger into device. Press the power button and hold still while measurements are being taken. Levels will be displayed on the screen.
Can this oximeter be used to continually collect readings over a long period of time?
Yes, our finger pulse oximeter is designed to take readings as long as the product is attached to your finger. Our battery-saving automatic shutdown feature will shut-down the oximeter after 8 seconds of inactivity. Excessive user movement may also cause inaccurate readings..
How can I clean the rubber padding inside of the oximeter?
We recommend using rubbing alcohol swab or wipe to clean the rubber sensor pad where you insert you finger. We also suggest cleaning the test finger with rubbing alcohol before collecting your readings.
What is the best way to maintain my pulse oximeter?
To maintain the life of your oximeter store in a dry area as extreme humidity or moisture may compromise the device. Also avoid exposure to direct sunlight. If you will not be using your oximeter often, remove batteries when not in use to avoid corrosion.
What does my blood oxygen level mean?
Normal blood oxygen levels measure between 95-100%. Blood oxygen levels that measure between 90-95% are considered low, but do not always indicate a health issue. Below 90% is considerably low and results in hypoxemia, an abnormally low concentration of oxygen in blood and organs can be damaged.
What is a normal heart rate?
A normal heart rate at rest for adults ranges from 60 to 100 beats per minute.
