PR® FINGERTIP PULSE OXIMETER – Oxygen Monitor
We’ve discussed what pulse oximeters measure and how they work. Now we need to talk about the normal ranges for heart rate and oxygen saturation.
Keep in mind, these are the normal values for an average adult. The ranges differ depending on your age. And while the normal range for oxygen saturation is 95-100%, the level isn’t considered to be dangerously low until it drops below 90%.
In such a case, that is referred to as hypoxemia, which means that there is an abnormally low level of oxygen in the blood. Hypoxemia is treated with supplemental oxygen.
When oximeter is turned off,insert finger into to oximeter, Press the operating button
The measurement result will be read directly from the screen within 8s
It recommended that the finger thickness should between 8-25.4mm
Ring finger, middle finger and index finger are recommended as suitable monitor posoition
Oximeter use the most advanced photoelectric principle, through the high-quality transparent acrylic panel screen to let people directly judge whether the measuring environment is suitable for measurement, to avoid the influence of strong light on the measurement results, so as to ensure high accuracy.
The normal range of oxygen saturation was SpO2 95%-99%.
Insufficient oxygen supply: SpO2 90% – 95%;
Mild hypoxemia: SpO 2 < 90%.
Severe hypoxemia: SpO 2 < 85%.
