During a finger pulse oximetry reading, the device is placed onto the fingertip. The pulse oximeter measures oxygen saturation levels.
Small beams of light measure the oxygen levels in the blood. It is a completely painless, non-invasive and simple way to take an accurate blood oxygen reading. It can give an indication of how effectively the heart is pumping oxygen to the rest of the body.
The YX300 Finger Pulse Oximeter features some of the following benefits:
- Gravity sensing
- Low power sign
- Oxygen saturation and PR display
- Pulse strength display
- Strong anti-interference performance
- Easy to use, light and portable
- Automatic shutdown in 8 seconds
- For hospitals, homecare, sport etc.
Using a finger pulse oximeter in the home may be directed by a medical professional, or it may be for a general peace of mind. It can be used to quickly detect any changes in blood oxygen saturation and whether medical help is required.
