Respiration Rate Pulse Oximeters
RESPIRATION RATE PULSE OXIMETER INFORMATION
A pulse oximeter with the ability to measure respiration in
breaths per minute provides important information pertaining to many aspects of
a patient’s respiratory status. A change in RR is one of the earliest
indicators that precedes serious complications such as respiratory tract
infections, pneumonia, respiratory depression associated with opioid
consumption, anesthesia and/or sedation, as well as respiratory failure.
Turner Medical offers the following FDA approved oximeters
that can accurately measure oxygen saturation, heart rate and respiration rate.
