Drive Fingertip Oximeter Pulse
The Drive Fingertip Oximeter Pulse MQ3000, also known as a pulse oximeter, is a non-invasive device that measures the oxygen saturation (SpO2) and pulse rate of a person’s blood. It is commonly used to monitor the oxygen levels of patients with respiratory or heart conditions, as well as in nonmedical settings for personal health monitoring.
The device is placed over the finger, and it uses a technique called pulse oximetry to measure the oxygen saturation of the blood. The device contains a small infrared light and a photodetector, which emit light through the finger and measure the absorption of the light by the hemoglobin in the blood. The amount of light absorbed is used to calculate the oxygen saturation level, which is displayed on the device’s screen in the form of a percentage.
The pulse rate measurement is done by detecting the change in the volume of blood flowing through the finger as the heart beats. The device has a built-in LED light that illuminates the finger, and a photodiode sensor that detects the change in light transmitted through the finger. The device then uses this information to calculate the pulse rate, which is displayed on the screen in beats per minute (BPM).
The device is portable, easy to use and relatively inexpensive. The Drive Fingertip Pulse oximeter is a convenient tool to monitor your oxygen saturation and pulse rate if you have any underlying conditions that affect your respiratory or cardiovascular system, or if you are engaging in high-altitude activities. However, it is important to note that these readings are not considered as accurate as the readings taken by professional healthcare workers using a medical-grade pulse oximeter. If you have any concerns about your health, it’s always best to speak with your doctor or other medical professional.
