A pulse oximeter may be ordered as part of your at-home monitoring regimen for many reasons. Pulse oximeters can quickly measure the level of oxygen in the blood, as well as the patient’s heart rate. They may be ordered to be used continuously, with sleep, or periodically (spot checking).
RSVP Home Care supplies the Medtronic PM100N and Masimo RAD 8 pulse oximeters. Each of these machines can run on a battery, setting alarm parameters, and storing data.
