A pulse oximeter is a compact device that is used in modern medicine. The intelligent device displays two leading indicators – pulse (the rhythm of the arteries, which is felt due to the work of the heart) and SpO2 – the amount of oxygen in the patient’s blood. You can use it both in hospitals and abroad. With the gadget will understand anyone. “cdhr.org.in” studied the market of medical pulse oximeters in 2021, tells about the main models and their features.

AmbiTech High Accuracy Fingertip Pulse Oximeter
The professional device from a Chinese manufacturer. It has extensive functionality for a medical pulse oximeter. First, about the batteries – the built-in battery is charged when you connect the device through a USB cable. On the one hand – convenient; on the other, integrated batteries sooner or later begin to hold a worse charge. But the pulse oximeter is far from the most energy-consuming device, so we can conclude that such a decision generally has the right to life. Now to the professional differences. The device has a built-in memory of 72 hours of continuous measurements. That is, you can track the dynamics. And not one patient, but 99 at once. After that, the data can be transferred to the computer. However, you will have to install the program – it is included on the CD-ROM. The controversial decision for 2021. The display here is in color – OLED. Shines brightly, you can choose the power of seven modes. Indicators can also be rotated. The time is displayed in the corner of the screen. Instead, it is necessary to synchronize data when transferred to a computer. By the way, the manufacturer says that the device is suitable for children from 7 years, but it depends on the volume of the finger.

Control D Bluetooth Digital SpO2 & Pulse Measurement Pulse Oximeter
Pulse oximeter from a Russian company from Novosibirsk, which specializes in the production of medical equipment. The older model of the line of devices for measuring the pulse and oxygen volume in the blood. An increased range of pulse measurement characterizes it. However, it is unlikely that this has any significance in domestic use. Since the device is quite unpretentious to energy consumption, tiny finger batteries will last for 30 hours of continuous operation.
The measurement process itself lasts less than a minute – the batteries will last a long time. A braid is attached to the device to, for example, wear a device around the neck. The device is controlled by one button. Inserted a finger to the end of the nail and released the clip. I started the device – and after a couple of seconds, the indicators pop up on the screen—convenient function – rotation of the displayed information. When you press the button again, the numbers rotate 90 degrees. On the screen, in addition to SpO2 and the indicator of contraction of the heart muscle, the so-called pulse wave is displayed – a graph of the frequency of strokes.

SCURE Fingertip Pulse Oximeter
One of the best medical pulse oximeters, but not cheap. All because of the inscription Made in the USA. Included with it are two covers—one hard – ceremonial. And the second is soft, to carry with you. There is also a long cord. The pulse oximeter is distinguished by an increased range of pulse measurement: from 18 to 300 beats per minute. Of course, such a wide range is needed only when analyzing the condition of severe patients in the clinic. The results are displayed 10-15 seconds after use on two luminous led display indicators. The LEDs here are red. In addition to the usual sensors, there is another exciting indicator. There is a light under the dial. If the color is green – then the scan is adequate, without interference. We can assume that the accuracy of the measurement will be maximum. If the diode lights up yellow or red, then something is wrong. Either the patient’s pulse is not strong enough, that is, the condition is critical, or the device is worn incorrectly.

Put on your finger, press looked at the indicators – and after 8 seconds, the device automatically turns off. Batteries will last for a long time. By the way, there is an indicator of the charge of the batteries. The manufacturer describes that his device is widely used in hospital hospitals when doctors work.

How to choose a medical pulse oximeter
Literally, at the beginning of 2021, the very word “pulse oximeter” was familiar only to doctors and sellers of this technique. But the outbreak of coronavirus has made these devices almost more famous than smartphones – it is the best medical pulse oximeters that can instantly show whether a person needs emergency medical care. Advice about this device was given to us by the head of the emergency and emergency department, general practitioner Alexander Dolenko.
There are not many devices on the market of medical pulse oximeters. For serious medical purposes, they are not suitable. However, it is quite possible to order devices “no-name” from China on the Internet. That is, without stamps and documents. On a high-quality machine, the manufacturer lips a Russified certificate—the maximum for the sake of home use and then, if your life does not depend on it.
Chinese devices without certification can be ordered even with AliExpress. They will cost about 1500 rubles. Of course, in medical equipment stores, machines are more expensive, but with all the documents. The average price of the device is 5-7 thousand rubles. Please note that many need to order in stores in advance or contact the manufacturer directly.
Do I need a pulse oximeter in everyday life?
Medical organization and their employees should purchase medical pulse oximeter duties. During a general examination of the patient, a pulse oximeter is used for additional research of the function of the respiratory system – gas exchange. I do not recommend actively buying pulse oximeters for non-medical professionals and trying to independently investigate the part of the respiratory system and interpret the indicators since pulse oximetry data should always be evaluated only in combination with the data of general examination and auscultation of the lungs, as well as body temperature and individual characteristics of a person – cold hands, the presence of nail polish and the like.
What are the forms?
Most modern pulse oximeters are attached to the finger. Cheaper are devices such as pressure meters – when worn on the wrist. The price of this in 2021 is about 2000 rubles. Another thing is that today they are practically not produced, and rarely where you can find such a device. There are also devices with a small clutch. They are in our ranking. However, they are more expensive and positioned as more accurate.
