Tips for buying Pulse Oximeter
- Pulse Oximeter units can either be stand-alone or a module in a larger patient monitor.
- Most pulse oximeters can interface with printers, recorders, computers, or multiparameter monitoring systems. It is important to make sure that the purchased unit is compatible with existing equipment.
- The multiwavelength oximeter should display at least 70% to 100% SpO2 values with an accuracy of ±3%. Pulse-rate measurements should be accurate within ±5 beats per minute within the range of 30-240 bpm.
- The pulse oximeter probes should provide accurate measurements, while tolerating probe movement caused by the patients or clinicians.
- In addition to SpO2 and pulse rate, the pulse oximeter should also display pulse strength and low battery.
- Audible and visual alarms should alert for high and low SpO2/pulse rate, sensor off, and low battery.
- Finger oximeter units usually operate on AC power, and many have battery backup as well. The unit should switch automatically to battery power if line power fails.
- Multiwavelength oximeters intended for transport within the facility should operate at least four hours without charging.
- Multiwavelength oximeters intended for transport outside the facility should operate at least eight hours without charging.
- In case of a pulse oximeter that is unable to obtain accurate readings, there should be a clear indication, preferably with the reason.
