Pulse oximeter NZ top tips
1. What should my measurements be?
Pulse oximeters provide two data points: SpO2 (oxygen saturation reading) and pulse rate. Confirm with your healthcare provider what your levels should be.
2. Battery & display
If a device has a low battery, it can produce an inaccurate reading. Be sure to purchase a pulse oximeter with a battery life indicator, and one that automatically switches off. An easy to read display is also useful.
3. Use in adults
Most pulse oximeters are designed for adult use. If the pulse oximeter is too loose while placed on a finger, it may be unable to obtain an accurate reading. Pediatric pulse oximeters are available for children or those with smaller fingers.
4. Remove nail polish, warm your hands!
Nail polish can provide an inaccurate reading. so remove nail polish from the finger that will be used to take the reading. Your hands need to be warm as well.
