Human beings need to maintain adequate oxygen supply in the body to maintain life, and the oximeter can monitor the SpO2 in our body to determine whether the body is free from potential risks.

It is characterized by its exquisiteness, compactness, and portability. It does not require an external sensor and only needs to be clamped on the finger to complete the measurement. This type of pulse oximeter is affordable and easy to use, and is the most effective method for monitoring blood oxygen levels.

The handheld type oximeter is usually used in hospitals and outpatient medical institutions or EMS. It contains a sensor that is connected to a cable and then connected to a monitor to monitor the patients Spo2, pulse rate, and blood flow. Perfusion index. But its disadvantage is that the cable is too long and it is inconvenient to carry and wear.

Compared with finger clip pulse type oximeter, desktop type oximeter are usually larger in size, can perform on-site readings and provide continuous SpO2 monitoring, and are ideal for hospitals and subacute environments. But the disadvantage is that the model is large and inconvenient to carry, so it can only be measured at a designated place.

Wristband type oximeter. This type oximeter is worn on the wrist like a watch, with it sensor placed on the index finger and connected to a small display on the wrist. The design is small and exquisite, it needs an external SpO2 sensor, the finger endurance is small, and it is comfortable. This is an ideal choice for patients who need to continuously monitor SpO2 every day or during sleep.
