How Does a Pulse Oximeter Work?
A Finger Tip Pulse Oximeter functions by shining light through your finger. The sensors detect how much oxygen is in your blood based on the way the light passes through your finger. Pulse oximetry is the technology calculating the results to display a number on the oximeter’s screen that tells you the per cent of oxygen in your blood. A Finger Tip Pulse Oximeter also measures your pulse rate.
Only Nonin pulse oximeters have PureSAT® pulse oximetry technology, which is precise enough to measure the oxygen level from each pulse. The many other finger pulse oximeters for sale are less precise and need to calculate an average oxygen level across numerous pulses, which often results in delayed or inaccurate readings.
Nonin Medical invented finger pulse oximetry and has 25 years of experience. At Nonin, we are dedicated to providing the highest quality products available at a great value.
