The MediGenix fingertip pulse oximeter is an attractive design and provides accurate and reliable results. It is small and lightweight so it is easy to carry around and with a one-button operation, it is very simple to use.
Covid patients commonly suffer from 'Silent Hypoxia'. This phenomenon is when a patient's blood oxygen level drops to a dangerously low level without the patient being aware of it. Low oxygen levels can damage organs as a result and can lead to the patient having to be put on a ventilator in hospital. The only way of knowing for sure that the patient is not in danger, is to regularly check the SpO2 levels using an oximeter.
This pulse oximeter displays your %SpO2 and pulse rate clearly on the OLED dual colour screen. Along with a precise SpO2 result, you will also see the waveform and pulse bar for a visual demonstration of the readings.
After 8 seconds the meter will automatically shut-off to save battery life and also has a low battery indicator displayed on the screen.
Each pulse oximeter comes complete with:
- x 1 lanyard
- x 1 user manual
- x 2 AAA batteries
