MedChoice's Reflective Pulse Oximeters:

  • MedChoice patented Reflectance Pulse Oximetry (RPO) technology is what allows SPO Medical's Pulse Oximeter to effectively monitor an athlete during such activities as: Mountain Climbing, High-Altitude Street Cycling, Light Jogging, Speed Walking and Running.

    These Pulse Oximeters are based on MedChoice's uniquely patented algorithms that use the Reflective Pulse Oximetry Technology for accurate oximetry measurement.

    What is Pulse Oximetry?
    Pulse oximetry is a very important non-invasive process used to measure blood oxygen saturation levels (SpO2) by monitoring the percentageof hemoglobin (Hb), which is saturated with oxygen as well as measuring heart rate.
    This procedure has been used regularly in hospitals during the past twenty years and is established as an essential measurement in medical practice, to ensure maintenance of adequate oxygen and prevention of respiratory difficulty.
    In many disease states, oxygen saturation is one of the most important vital signs to monitor.

    Answers

    General
  • What is Pulse Oximetry?
    Pulse Oximetry is a physical checkup which determines how well oxygen is carried in the blood, from the lungs into the body tissues. Some medical conditions can cause the blood to inefficiently carry oxygen. In other cases, strenuous physical activities (such as sprinting or jumping) can lead to a sudden and sharp decrease in oxygen levels. These conditions can cause the patient or athlete to faint.

  • What is SpO2?
    SpO2 is a general name for a medical examination, which performs a periodical and repetitive Pulse Oximetry checks. The SpO2 examination can be taken in a medical facility, or at home, and in some devices, it can be pre-programmed to take "snap-shots" of the patient's oxygen level in designated intervals.



  • Are MedChoice devices suitable for SpO2 checkups?
    Yes! SPO Medical products met the highest standards, as laboratory tests showed. These devices, despite their minute dimensions, match the yardstick of bigger and much more expensive devices, which are at a wide use in medical facilities.

  • What should be my normal SpO2 reading?
    Individual normal range should be defined by your physician.

  • Should I turn the pulse oximeter ON, before or after I put it on my finger?
    The reading process will be shorter, if you first put the device on your finger and then turn it on


  • After I start the Pulse Oximeter, I only get dashes.
    This is normal for the first 20 seconds, if it takes longer to get a reading, it may be indicating that the unit is too tight on your finger, causing impairment or restriction of the circulation. Pull your finger out a little and restart the unit. If the second try is unsuccessful, repeat the insert/ start process on a smaller finger. On people (or children) with very small fingers, try using the thumb.



  • I get a "weak signal" icon, what does that mean?
    After starting the Pulse Oximeter and getting a good reading, if the sensor does not receive a signal for more than about 5 seconds, this icon will appear, even though the display continues to show its last update. It may be indicating that the unit is too tight on the finger and restricting or stopping circulation- refer above

  • I get a "sensor off" icon, what does this mean?
    The sensor will shut down if no signal is detected over 20 seconds. It may also indicate that the pulse oximeter is too tight on the finger and restricting or stopping circulation.



  • The light keeps going out.
    The light is designed to operate for 10 seconds at a time to save battery life. Press the button for about one second again to turn the light on for another ten seconds. Note: Holding the button down for too long will turn off the unit

  • Can I put it on a wet (or bloody) finger?
    No. These models are not water resistant, and exposure to excessive moisture will damage the devices and void the warranty. Wipe all moisture from your finger before inserting it into the flexible thimble. If the finger is injured or bleeding- use a different finger.

  • The device was laid on the table for 5 minutes and it never turned off automatically.
    If the pulse oximeter sensor gets ordinary room light, it will still periodically try to get a new reading. In order to use the "auto off" feature, It is recommended you store the device in a dark environment.
