ri-fox N is a pulse oximeter which measures pulse rate (PR) and oxygen saturation (SpO2) in less than 3 seconds. The pulse oximeter easily clips onto the patient’s finger, preferably the index finger. The measurements are easy to read on the LED display screen in both dark and lit settings. This small, mobile device is suitable for use in hospitals, clinics as well as long-term care settings or home.
TPulse oximetry is defined as: A test used to measure the oxygen level (oxygen saturation) of the blood. It is an easy, painless measure of how well oxygen is being sent to parts of your body furthest from your heart, such as the arms and legs. A clip-like device called a probe is placed on a body part, such as a finger. The probe uses light to measure how much oxygen is in the blood. This information helps the healthcare provider decide if a person needs extra oxygen.During the COVID-19 pandemic the NHS (National Health Service, UK) noted that low levels of oxygen in your blood can be a sign you're getting worse. A pulse oximeter can help you spot this before you feel breathless or have any other symptoms, so you can get help quickly.
