The findertip pulse Oximeter is a small one button device that fits in your pocket, allowing you to easily measure the oxygen concentration and heart rate before, during or after exercise.
It can also be used to help monitor a range of conditions in hospital or at home, including COVID-19 infection. COVID-19 is a viral infection. For most people, the symptoms are relatively mild, and they usually get better over two to three weeks. However, for some, the symptoms can be very serious and can get worse quickly.
It is widely used by hospital nurses, sports doctors and nursing staff.
The oximeter measures two things:
- Pulse – this is a measure of how fast your heart is beating. Your pulse is measured in beats per minute (bpm). On this device this number will show as PRbpm (pulse rate/beats per minute).
- Oxygen saturation level – this is a measure of how much oxygen is in your blood. Your oxygen saturation is measured as a percentage (scored out of 100). On this device the number will show as SpO2% (saturation percentage of oxygen).
What do pulse Oximeter numbers mean?
Your healthcare team will give you details on appropriate oxygen saturation levels for your specific medical condition. The following is a guide for adults with no previous lung conditions.
| Oxygen saturation
|Pulse rate (bpm or PRbpm)
||Seek advice from your COVID-19 healthcare team
||120 or more
||Call 111 for urgent medical care
Using the Oximeter
- Wash your hands and remove any nail polish or false nails. This allows the light beams in the sensor to measure through your fingernail.
- Make sure you have been resting for at least five minutes before taking the reading.
- If your hands are cold, warm them by rubbing them together.
- Rest your arm and hand and keep them still while taking your reading.
- Your hand should be at waist level, such as resting your hand on a table or the arm of your chair.
Taking your reading
- Press the pulse oximeter button on, and the display will light up.
- Squeeze to open and insert your finger until your fingertip touches the end.
- It works best on the middle or index finger of either hand.
- Keep your hand still and wait for one to two minutes until your pulse ( PRbpm) is steady and your oxygen saturation (SpO2%) number has not changed for five seconds or more.
- If your numbers are not steady, try a different finger.
