What is the iHealth Wireless Pulse Oximeter used for?
The amount of oxygen in your blood and your pulse rate are two important health indicators. Typically, an SpO2 reading of 96% to 99% and a resting pulse rate around 80 beats per minute is considered normal. With the iHealth Wireless Pulse Oximeter you can check the amount of oxygen in your blood and your pulse rate at any time, for example during or after running or other activities. The oximeter tells you directly how your heart and the oxygen level in your blood are responding to exercise.
How does the iHealth Wireless Pulse Oximeter work?
The iHealth Wireless Pulse Oximeter measures the amount of oxygen by shining two light beams into the small blood vessels or capillaries of your finger. It also measures your pulse rate. The readings are sent to your mobile phone or tablet via Bluetooth, allowing you to view, manage and share your results instantly.
