Masimo Rad-8 Pulse Oximeter
A pulse oximeter is a device that indirectly monitors the oxygen saturation of a patient’s blood and changes in blood volume in the skin. As opposed to drawing a blood sample, pulse oximeters use wavelengths of light to take measurements by placing a sensor on the patient’s fingertip, or even across the foot.
The Masimo Rad-8 Pulse Oximeter is most commonly ordered to monitor oxygen levels for treatment of patients with respiratory issues, prematurity, or even to monitor heartrate in patients with heart conditions.
