Advantages of Pulse Oximeters

Like the finger oximeter, the pulse oximeter is a small-volume measurement instrument that is easy to carry. The better thing about the pulse oximeter than the finger oximeter is that it integrates the blood oxygen probe and the processing display. , has very high accuracy when measuring and calculating blood oxygen saturation, and can display parameters such as pulse rate value synchronously.






Before using a pulse oximeter to measure blood oxygen, there are a few things to keep in mind. People with respiratory diseases will have lower blood oxygen, heavy bleeding will cause lower blood oxygen, and insufficient oxygen supply will also cause lower blood oxygen. It is normal for these groups of people to find that their blood oxygen is lowered during measurement. Pulse oximeters determine the concentration of oxygen in the blood by the ratio of oxyhemoglobin to the volume of all bindable hemoglobin. Pulse oximeters, like finger oximeters, cannot obtain accurate measurements if they are not operated properly. Before the measurement, special attention should be paid to whether there is water or transparent solidified dynamic air on the hands. It cannot be tested in particularly humid conditions. Do not apply chemicals such as nail polish to the fingernails.

Pulse oximeters, although not as well-known as finger oximeters, are very popular in the high-end market, and their high precision and convenience provide great convenience to all patients who need it.
