Non-Invasive SPO2 Finger Probe
The MD300-D offers lead-free pulse oximetry measurement and is ideal for healthcare professionals in hospitals, or in the community, GP or practice nurse settings.
It can be an important aid when monitoring breathing problems such as Asthma or infections with children and the elderly.
It is also effective for personal use to measure the amount of oxygen in your blood and your heart rate before or after sports, athletic practice or mountaineering.
It's really small and light (about 50g with batteries), has a strap so that it can be worn round the neck and illumination so that you can read measurements any time of the day or night. It automatically turns off if not in use for longer than 8 seconds. In fact it is really ingenious - we think it is an essential tool for all health professionals
How it works
The MD300-D Fingertip Pulse Oximeter shines red and infrared light through a finger. This detects fluctuating signals caused by blood flow. Pulse rate is monitored from signals received by a light detector. Changes in the light signals are then used to calculate blood oxygen saturation (%SpO2) of haemoglobin. Haemoglobin saturation is a percentage of the amount of oxygen that is attached to red blood cells in your blood stream at any one time (called haemoglobin saturation). For example, many respiratory or breathing difficulties such as asthma or chest infections can cause haemoglobin saturation in the blood to be lowered.
The MD300-D offers:
SPO2 display range 0-99%
PR display range 30-254 BPM
Resolution: +/- 1% for SPO2 +/- 1BPM for pulse rate
Measurement accuracy: SPO2: 80%-99%, +/-2%; 70%-80%, +/-3%; less than 70% no definition
Battery consumption: two AAA 1.5V, batteries can be used continuously for 30 hours. Light weight: about 50 g including batteries!
