 New member of OxiMax Family Meets with Success
Weighing one-half pound, the N-45 pulse oximeter features an artifact-reducing algorithm that combats the effects of patient motion and delivers highly accurate SpO2 and pulse-rate values, even during challenging monitoring conditions. The long battery life and small size make the oximeter ideal for quick assessments or short-term monitoring in intensive care units and general floor care environments, during in-hospital and ambulance transport, and during exercise studies. The N-45 oximeter is compatible with the entire family of OxiMax pulse oximetry sensor, which allows clinicians the power of condition-specific sensor technology in a portable pulse oximeter.
