Ear Pulse Oximeter
EAR PULSE OXIMETER INFORMATION
Pulse oximeters can be used on the ear with the use of an ear clip sensor. Ear clip sensors require a pulse oximeter.
Hand held or table top oximeters have the ability to accept ear clip sensors. Ear clip sensors are most commonly used when a patient has poor circulation in the fingers and/or toes. The ear clip sensor is placed on the ear lobe region of the ear. Turner Medical offers ear sensors sold individually or packaged with an oximeter. If multiple sensors are listed with the product, make sure you select the correct ear sensor.
Reynaud's Syndrome is a common condition where a standard pulse oximeter that takes readings off the finger won't work. An ear clip oximeter has been very effective in obtaining accurate readings from the ear for people with Reynaud's Syndrome.
