A pulse oximeter allows easy and continuous monitoring of the pulse and oxygen saturation.
The blood oxygen saturation (SpO2%) shows what percentage of the total haemoglobin in the blood contains oxygen.
These devices are particularly suitable for people with heart failure, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and bronchial asthma.
They are very light and handy and also suitable for sports at high altitudes (e.g. mountaineering, skiing and sports flying).
The measurement is very quick, easy and completely painless.
