My elderly neighbors needed to check their oxgyen so I picked this one for them and they are thriled with it. It is easy to read and understand. Their nurse told them it is very good and was surprised at to the low cost. I am planning on buying one for myself.
We had one of these but a different brand before this one and in comparison, I love this one for one main reason. The configurable, easy to see and read display. Being able to rotate the numbers so it is easier for my elderly mother to see them is wonderful. Now she does not have to turn her hand in an uncomfortable position just to see the numbers. Another big point that I almost forgot to mention is the brightness adjustment... wow, it goes up bright enough to read it in the bright daylight. My mother showed this unit to her nurse and was told that they use the same ones...so they must be accurate. Get this one if you need one.
I bought this for my elderly father and my husband who has Atrial Fib has "stolen" it from him on more than one occasion. He likes that he can put it on the setting where it shows the pulse chart and it lets him know if his heart is beating irregularly!
Use this on my ten year old with asthma. Any time he would get fussy or have difficulty reading we bring out this and he loves to us it. Based on the number we exercise and or use the inhaler, take deep breathes and retest. Great product for use with kids.
I have another 5-star rated Pulse Oximeter, but bought this Deluxe brand for my folks since it cost less but was still rated highly. Not only does it work quite well, but it also displays more info than my other. Great little gadget for helping to monitor our heart meds, and much faster and easier to use than a BP cuff. I'm sure a practiced nurse can easily feel a person's pulse in their wrist, but I never could. More importantly, this gadget will also indicate how much oxygen is in your blood, which is an indication of how well your lungs are functioning. Last year my husband's pulse ox level dropped to the 70's because he was about to die of a saddle pulmonary embolism, which (large blood clot of both lungs) does NOT show on a normal chest x-ray! This gadget will indicate if there is a problem. A dropping Pulse Ox %, or anything less than 90% should probably be seen by a doctor! If accompanied by other symptoms such as chest pain or weakness/dizziness or mental foggyness or a cough or shortness of breath, go straight to your ER and insist on an MRI or imaging that will reveal blood clots. They are often deadly, so beware! While heart rates can vary greatly (less than 50 bpm is probably too low and more than 90 bpm when resting is probably too high), the pulse ox of most people usually runs about 94-99%.
excellent..compared to local hospital oximeter and was within 2 points of its reading..like the fact that can be displayed several different ways and the 2 year warranty..bought a 2nd one for relative.and this unit was a lifesaver in a recent 911 situation..as my sister was unresponsive to us waking her up,when i attached the veridan oximter to my sisters finger and it showed a 46,then 911 was called and 5 EMT were reviving her..turns out she had pneumonia n both lungs and didn't realize it.so glad we bought it,shes doing better now/may 22nd.2013
Out of 10 times on a still, warm finger, the unit only displayed the reading immediately twice. 3 times it took over 45 sec. and 3 times it was over a 75 sec, and once still no display after 3 min. This was par for the usage of the oximeter for the 1st 4 days so I returned it. The unit came on and auto off as it should. The display easily changed viewing directions as advertised, it just wouldn't pick up the SpO2 and heart rate as I thought it should.
I wish I would have purchased this sooner! I'm about to graduate and I haven't been in a hospital yet where you have enough Pulse Oximeters! It is SO frustrating and wastes so much time! I LOVE having this, but I actually should have bought 2 because my classmates are always asking to borrow mine.
Love this pulse oximeter. I am a nurse and do spot checks and VS all the time. This gives a speedy and accurate reading. Love it so far, only a week into its use.
My wife needs to keep a check on her oxygen level and this product does just that and also hert heart beat. I also use it once in awhile. Great product.
Once placed on properly, provides averaged O2 sat & pulse rate, real time monitor of blood flow. This can be extrapolated as pulse and blood flow. This makes it easy to see pulse irregularities but be careful of movements. A little surg tape can help secure the pulseOx on the finger.
I use it as i'm now in final stage of COPD and cannot allow my oxygen level to get too low and also for to make sure my pulse rate is within a normal rate.
But, it is also good for for sports and aviation enthusiasts.
The one that doctors use cost $200 or more and this one does the same thing.
Love it works very well good price checked agenst one at doctor office wright on the money.
Since I'm on oxygen 24/7 this helps me know when to
boost up the amount I need.
I checked it at the hospital against the bigger hospital grade p/o and it was four to five lower. It gives you an idea but I would like something more accurate.
The price has come down on these fingertip p/o's but so has the quality.
It's okay but not great.
I thought this little thing would not work,boy was I wrong it works great ,
The price was very good to.
Meets and exceeds expectations.
Only complaint was shipping - was by pony express, very slow
works great easy to ready and operate.
This oximeter is very well made, has a great display and uses AAA batteries which aren't expensive. Seems accurate and is quick. Has a carry pouch and lanyard strap. A very good deal for such a low price.
