- Determines the percentage of oxygen in the blood
- Analyzes the amount of light that passes through the blood
- Provides indications about how well the heart is pumping oxygen throughout the body.
- Display two numbers – blood oxygen level and heart rate
- Auto shut down feature if a finger is not inserted properly
Directions for Use:
To use a pulse oximeter:
- Clip the device to a part of your body, such as your finger, toe, or earlobe. If it is hard to clip on a certain body part, such as your big toe, don’t force it. Most at-home pulse oximeters work best when used on your index finger.
- Ensure that the device is evenly positioned and fits securely. You don’t want it too tight, as it might cut off circulation, but if it’s too loose, it might fall off or affect the reading.
- Within a few seconds, the pulse oximeter should display your current oxygen saturation level and heart rate.
- Sanitize the product before and after use
- Do not move your body during measurement
- Avoid using in strong sunlight and dusty environment
- Keep equipment away from children
A pulse oximeter, sometimes referred to as a pulse ox, is a small, portable device that measures the oxygen saturation level of your blood. Often, the pulse oximeter will also display your heart rate.
Pulse oximeters use beams of light that painlessly pass through the blood in that area to measure your blood oxygen levels. The amount of light absorbed by the blood varies depending on how oxygenated the blood is.
- Provides indication regarding how well the heart is pumping oxygen throughout the body.
- Can also be used at home to monitor for anyone with a condition like asthma, anemia, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), pneumonia, lung cancer,heart failure, congenital heart defects that may cause them to experience periods of low oxygen levels.
- Also used for people with these conditions to monitor oxygen levels while exercising, traveling at high altitudes, taking a new medication, or starting out on prescribed supplemental oxygen.
If you have a condition that can cause low blood oxygen levels, it’s important to have your levels checked regularly. It may also be important to check your levels if you experience symptoms of low oxygen, such as wheezing or chest pain, when sleeping, exercising, or traveling at high altitudes. With this knowledge, you can receive supplemental oxygen or other medical care when needed to prevent cell and tissue damage.
Dr.Odin’s pulse oximeters will display two numbers: your blood oxygen level and your heart rate. Typically, the blood oxygen level will be indicated by SpO2 and the heart rate will be indicated by PR BPM or HR.
Inaccurate readings can either cause panic or a misleading, false sense of security. To limit the factors that could influence your blood oxygen level reading, try the following:
- Ensure that the pulse oximeter is securely attached to your finger or other body parts, not too tight or too loose.
- Hold hand below the level of your heart.
- Warm your hands up by placing them under a warm towel or running them under warm water.
- Relax your hand or hold it steady when taking the reading.
- Try another finger, the opposite hand, or another body part if you are having trouble getting a good reading.
