Digital Pulse Oximeter & Heart Rate Monitor
Good blood oxygenation is necessary to supply the energy your muscles need in order to function, which increases during a sports activity. If your SpO2 (amount of oxygen in your blood) value is below 95%, that could be a sign of poor blood oxygenation, also called hypoxia.
Why might I need a Digital Pulse Oximeter?
Pulse oximetry may be used to see if there is enough oxygen in your blood. This information is needed in many kinds of situations. It may be used:
During or after surgery or procedures that use sedation
To see how well lung medicines are working
To check a person’s ability to handle increased activity levels
To see if a ventilator is needed to help with breathing, or to see how well it’s working
To check a person has moments when breathing stops during sleep (sleep apnea)
Very important if you've ever had...
Pulse oximetry is also used to check the health of a person with any condition that affects blood oxygen levels, such as:
Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)
Your healthcare provider may have other reasons to advise Pulse Oximeter.
Pulse oximetry is a test used to measure the oxygen level (oxygen saturation) of the blood. It is an easy, painless measure of how well oxygen is being sent to parts of your body furthest from your heart, such as the arms and legs.
If your Pulse Oximeter says 98%, this means that each red blood cell is made up of 98% oxygenated and 2% non-oxygenated hemoglobin. Normal SpO2 values vary between 95 and 100%.
You can easily measure your SpO2 with this Pulse Oximeter. We remind you that this Pulse Oximeter & Blood Pressure Monitor is not a medical device that should be used to diagnose or monitor a pathological condition.
