Pulse Oximeter with Alarm
OXIMETER WITH ALARM INFORMATION
Pulse oximeters with alarms have either audible
and visual notifications or vibration when oxygen saturation (SpO2 %) and/or
heart rate readings exceed a pre-set value. Alarming oximeters allow the
settings for both oxygen and pulse rate to be changed based on the users needs.
Oximeters with alarms can be used for continuous, sleep, or home use. The audible alarms are
loud enough on hand-helds and tabletops to wake a sleeping person or notify a
nearby caregiver. Vibration alarms (no sound) are designed to only notify the
person using the oximeter.
Hand held, table top and wrist oximeters with optional alarms and
the proper sized sensor can be used on infants, pediatrics and adults.
Pulse oximeter alarm setting:
SpO2 - Alarms can be set for only when
the reading goes below a certain value. Most oximeters default alarm setting is
90% or below.
Heart Rate - Alarms can be set for both
low and high levels. Default alarm levels are different for each manufacturer.
