I am very happy with the oximeter. Sadly I received it the morning before my husband went home to be with Jesus.
Hi Charlotte, Thank you for the 5 star rating. My sincere condolences for the lost of your husband. I'm sure he's happy now in heaven and of course he's free from pain. Thank you so much for being a Vive Health customer! - Warm regards, Gre_ Vive Health
I am well satisfied with the performance of the Pulse Oximeter from Vive Health. It does the job I wanted it to do.
Fine piece of equipment
Response is rapid, measurements prove accurate compared to clinical heart rate monitor equipment, and readings are easily read and understood. Only glimmer of a complaint is that the otherwise excellent case does not have a belt loop. (I use the device in a cardio maintenance gym and am already hanging ID cards on a neck loop and don't want to add a swinging pulse oximeter to the neckware!)
Love the ease of using your product and the notification of the irregular heart beat is an added bonus. Would recommend to anyone
Back of Pulse Oximeter would not stay on. Call to Vive resulted in immediate offer to replace. New oximeter arrived in mail four days later. No charge. Impressive!
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 is transferred throughout the body.
