Intended Use

The Pulse Oximeter is intended for noninvasive spot-check measurement of functional oxygen saturation of arterial hemoglobin (SpO2). This product is suitable for the hospital (including surgery, anesthesiology, pediatrics, and clinical use), oxygen bar, sports health (using before or after sports, not during motion), and community health care. It is intended for use only by medical professionals or under their guidance. It must only be used by people who have received adequate training in its use.


It is not intended for neonates or infants. Finger size should be between 8 and 25 mm.

It is not for intensive care and a person whose finger is injured.

Oximeter readings may be affected by fingernail polish, low hemoglobin (anemia), and cold hands.

Do not use the oximeter in MR or CT environment.

The oximeter is not suitable for people with arrhythmias, heart failure, low peripheral perfusion, or tremor.

Instructions for the Safe Operation and Use of the Pulse Oximeter

Do not use the oximeter on the same arm as a blood pressure cuff.

Do not use on the thumb or fifth finger.

Do not use the oximeter for more than five minutes on the same finger.

Do not stare at the light (infrared) which can injure the eyes.

Do not attempt to service the pulse oximeter. Only qualified service personnel should attempt any needed internal servicing. 

Do not use the oximeter in situations where alarms are required. 

SpO2 measurements may be adversely affected in the presence of high ambient light. Shield the sensor area (with a towel, for example) if necessary. 

The following reasons will cause interference. 

  • High-frequency electrosurgical
  • Placement of a sensor on an extremity with a blood pressure cuff, arterial catheter, or intravascular line
  • The patient has hypotension, severe vasoconstriction, severe anemia, or hypothermia.
  • The patient is in cardiac arrest or is in shock.
  • Fingernail polish or false fingernails may cause inaccurate SpO2 readings.


Open the clamp, insert one finger into the rubber hole of the oximeter with the nail surface upward until the fingertip touches the built-in stop guide, and then release the clamp (see figure in user’s manual). Press the button to active the oximeter.

CAUTION: Do not operate the unit if it is damp or wet because of condensation or spills. Avoid using the equipment immediately after moving it from a cold environment to a warm, humid location.
