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.
