Oximeter is a precise way to check a person’s oxygen saturation level and pulse rate.
This pulse oximeter is one of the best models on the market. Unlike other equivalent oximeters, the
- It has a self-adjusting finger clamp with a single push button that allows you to operate it with ease.
- The finger chamber is latex free and is made of hypo-allergic medical grade silicon which allows an easy access to pulse and oxygen readings.
- It has a low battery indicator that notifies the consultant to recharge their device.
- This oximeter runs on 2 AAA batteries which can be purchased easily.
- It has a bright OLED display which allows you to use it low light. This display not only gives an easy view in dark environments but in bright sunlight as well.
The newly upgraded
- It permits quick reading with precision and accuracy.
- It has a peripheral capillary oxygen saturation (SpO2) resolution of +/- 2%.
- It has a pulse rate resolution of +/- 2 bpm. Furthermore, it also has a pulse rate range of 30 to 250 bpm.
- An auto turn-off feature saves battery charge when the device is not in use. This allows an individual to use it for a longer period.
- The display allows you to view the readings in 4 directions and 6 modes.
- The results can be obtained in the form of numbers as well as waveform and bar graph called plethysmograph (Signals detected by the pulse oximeter to recognize the blood volume).

How to use
SantaMedical Generation 2 OLED Fingertip Pulse Oximeter?
Pulse oximetry is a fast, noninvasive, and painless test. In some cases, doctors recommend having a pulse oximeter at home.
Using a pulse oximeter at home, taking readings will let you know if the oxygen concentration is above or below certain levels. The pulse oximetry process is as follows:
- A clip-like device or probe is placed on your finger. A small pressure is felt by the individual without any pain or pinching.
- The probe should be put on the patient correctly to ensure the oximeter works correctly
- In some cases, a small probe is placed on your finger with a sticky adhesive. A person may be asked to remove your fingernail polish as it can cause complications in the accuracy of the reading.
- You’ll keep the probe on for as long as needed to monitor your pulse and oxygen saturation.
- As soon as the test is completed, the clip or probe will be removed.
- Once the test is over, the readings determine if other testing or treatment is necessary.
Frequently Asked Questions
Why does the device not turn on even after installing new batteries?
Oximeters require a different method of placement of batteries. Although the battery springs are on the same sides, the batteries are needed to be installed in the opposite direction. If this does not turn your device on, contact your device manufacturer.
Does this oximeter work for
children (under 5 years old)?
For little hands, this oximeter can be used fittingly while it is placed on their thumb or middle finger. However, the health provider needs to make sure that the fingertip of the child is placed properly and is touching the end of the device.
It also offers a 1-year warranty. So, using
