It reads oxygen saturation data from a sensor on the finger or earlobe, and transmits the data via Bluetooth wireless technology to a mobile phone, PDA, laptop PC, or other Bluetooth-enabled device.
The device can transmit the data in real-time or store the data for later download, as required.
The data received from the Alive Pulse Oximeter can be displayed locally, and for telemedicine applications it can also be transmitted in real-time to a central monitoring centre over the Internet.
The device is well-suited to remote respiratory monitoring, e.g., for remotely monitoring patients receiving home oxygen therapy.
The device is also suitable for home sleep apnea screening, as the wireless technology provides a more comfortable environment for patients’ sleep.
