- Measurement of blood oxygen saturation and heart rate of adults and children in an easy, reliable, and non-invasive manner. The pulse oximeter is suitable especially for patients at risk, such as people with heart disease or asthma, as well as for sportsmen and healthy people at high altitudes (e.g. mountaineers, skiers, sports pilots).
The pulse oximeter is used for non-invasive measurement of hemoglobin saturation with oxygen in the arterial part of the bloodstream and of the heart rate. Hemoglobin saturation with oxygen states how much the hemoglobin in the arterial blood are saturated with oxygen, expressed as a percentage. It is therefore an important indicator for assessing the breathing function.
To make measurements, the pulse oximeter uses two light beams of different wavelengths that fall on the finger placed inside the device. A low value of hemoglobin saturation with oxygen mostly indicates diseases such as airway diseases, cardiac insufficiency, etc. Persons with a low value of hemoglobin saturation with oxygen are more likely to experience symptoms such as shortness of breath, higher heart rate, decline in performance, nervousness, and sudden sweating.
Chronic and known lowered hemoglobin saturation with oxygen requires monitoring by means of a pulse oximeter and medical checkups. A sudden decrease in hemoglobin saturation with oxygen must be immediately discussed with a physician.
Use of the device:
- - Insert two AAA batteries in the correct direction and put on the cover
- - Place your finger fully into the rubber slot (make sure that the finger is in the correct position with your nail facing up) and then release the clip
- - Turn on the pulse oximeter using the button on the front panel
- - Do not move your finger during the measurement. You should also avoid any body movement during the procedure
- - After the measurement result is stabilised, read the measured valued on the display

If you have mild COVID-19 and are recovering at home, an oximeter may be a useful tool to check oxygen levels, enabling you to detect a low level in time. In general, people already suffering from a lung or heart disease, obese people, and active smokers theoretically face a higher risk of oxygen problems.
In general, a decreasing value nearing 90% means that you should seek medical attention.
