Pulse Oximeters are designed to monitor and measure an individual's SpO2, Pulse Rate, and Perfusion IndexMeasuring and tracking this health data allows users to assess and make informed decisions related to their health when it matters most. This is especially important for those with chronic respiratory conditions or sleep disorders.

Our Pulse Oximeters are portable and versatile, allowing them to be used on the go, at home, or in a professional medical setting. These devices also feature an adjustable alarm that immediately alerts users to any critical change in health conditions allowing swift action to be taken. 

Additionally, our Pulse Oximeters can store up to 384 Hours (16 days) of user health data. We also offer a wide variety of device-compatible sensors (sold separately) that enable the oximeter to be used for continuous monitoring, or spot-checking across three different age groups: Infant, Pediatric, and Adult.

Here you can determine which sensor is best suitable for your specific needs.

Our Pulse Oximeters are built with portability and usability in mind so that monitoring and recording blood oxygen saturation and pulse rate is never a chore.

How Should I Properly Store My Device?

When not in use, always unplug the device and detach the sensor, keeping your finger sensor in a bag or covered box. We recommend storing it in a dry, cool place to keep your product protected and long-lasting.


How Does The Alarm Feature Work?

Both of our PC-66 Series Handheld Pulse Oximeters are equipped with the ability to sound an alarm if your reading drops below the threshold value. After 90 seconds, the device will override the mute function and sound the alarm if the user falls below their threshold values. You can manually set your own values in the device to better suit your needs and lifestyle. For how to set up the alarm, please watch this video.

How Do I Share My Health Data With My Physician?

You can share medical reports with a physician through the Oximeter Data Manager desktop program. Once the data is uploaded to the application you can export the data as a report by going to the Data Review tab. Select Sp02 Continuous, then highlight the record you want to share, select the Chart tab, and select report.  You can print the report or save the report as a pdf, through the print options, to email the report to a physician. 


What Is Perfusion Index (PI)?

Perfusion Index, often abbreviated PI, is a measurement obtained from a pulse oximeter that is calculated as the ratio of pulsatile blood flow to the non-pulsatile blood in peripheral tissues. Simply put, it is the ratio of pulsing blood to non-pulsing blood. This measurement can be acquired non-invasively and is a good indicator of a user’s pulse strength.

Physician’s often used this measurement to gain a better understanding of the effects of a drug or treatment on a patient. It can also be used to gain insight into medicinal efficacy and track disease progressionRead more about Perfusion Index here.
