is equipped with a fast and developed memory system to record readings.
The purpose of this study was to determine the level of agreement between a portable pulse oximeter
Under the guarantee, if Masimo SET is proven not to be superior to all Nellcor pulse oximeters
, including the three that Covidien announced have received FDA 510(k) clearance with motion claims, Masimo will pay up to USD 1m to help a hospital acquire that pulse oximetry.
And for those who want to use their pulse oximeter
to evaluate another physiologic dimension, MightySat is the only fingertip pulse oximeter
available with the optional Pleth Variability Index (PVI(R)), a measure of the dynamic changes in the PI that occur during one or more complete respiratory cycles.
In the early 1990's I did some research for one of the pulse oximeter
Qualitative review of anaesthesia incidents has suggested that the pulse oximeter
is a life-saving device, with Runciman concluding that oximetry could have prevented up to one-third of the anaesthesia-related deaths that occurred in Australia prior to its widespread introduction (8).
Members donated pounds 1,500 to the charity for research into the disease and purchased three oximeters
The non-invasive nature of the oximeter
was a revolution for the times, as we were all dealing with Universal Precautions, and seeking ways to avoid contact with human blood or other potentially infectious materials.
In developing the TruSat pulse oximeter
, GE Healthcare engineers explored a new prototyping process for creating the oximeter
's outside bumpers--plastic parts that protect the oximeter
, hold it in place during use, and help provide easy plug-in access.
2]Hb obtained by "CO-oximetry" in patients with high fractions of COHb or MetHb led to numerous reports erroneously stating that the oxygen saturation was greatly overestimated by the pulse oximeter
in these patients.

We chose the Nellcor N-595 Pulse Oximeter
because of its decreased sensitivity to motion artifact and better alarm parameters," said Lisa Hines, Clinical Coordinator of Respiratory Care for Carson-Tahoe Hospital.
