ABOUT PULSE OXIMETERS
This pulse oximeter uses Optimetrix™ technology, which utilizes
revolutionary optical sensor technology to measure both blood
oxygen saturation ( SpO
2
%) levels and pulse rate. By placing the
finger into the sleeve and one-touch of a button, this device will
send both red and infrared lights into the skin to collect data and
display your blood oxygen and pulse rate.
