Collection: Pulse Oximeters
Need a pulse oximeter in Canada to measure your oxygen saturation at home? As a pulse oximeter manufacturer, BIOS Medical offers three fingertip devices to use in the home setting. All the devices are Health Canada approved.
How does a pulse oximeter work?
Pulse oximetry is non-invasive and painless. The small digital device is clipped onto the fingertip and covers the front and back of the fingertip. When activated, it emits a light that passes through the fingernail, skin, blood, and tissue.
On the other side of the finger, a sensor detects and measures the amount of light passing through the finger without getting absorbed by the blood and tissue. With this measurement, the device calculates the blood oxygen saturation.
Why is it important to know what the oxygen saturation of my lungs is?
Our organs need a constant supply of oxygen to work properly. When we breathe, our lungs transmit oxygen into our capillaries. These capillaries send oxygen-rich blood to the heart. The heart then pumps it through the rest of the body via arteries, including to the organs.
When the lungs struggle to transport oxygen into the blood, blood oxygen saturation declines. It negatively impacts our organs. If the pulse oximeter detects a drop in oxygen saturation, medical intervention might be needed.
What types of pulse oximeters are on offer?
For a fingertip oximeter in Canada, BIOS Medical has the best options for home use. All pulse oximeter devices are suitable for adult and pediatric use. The BIOS Diagnostics Fingertip Pulse Oximeter checks your pulse rate and the oxygen saturation of arterial hemoglobin (SP02).
Two ChoiceMMed devices are available. They are the Fingertip Pulse Oximeter and Fingertip Pulse Oximeter – Blue. These two devices also check pulse rate and oxygen saturation.
