Ensure the Safety of Employees and Customers

Screening employees before they enter the workplace is a quick and simple way to monitor employee health before they return to work. This could include symptom and/or temperature screening, as well as blood oxygenation spot checks using a pulse oximeter. 

Monitoring oxygen saturation (SpO2) can be an effective method for keeping your employees healthy, as many patients with COVID-19 have low oxygen levels even when they are feeling well. Low oxygen levels can be an early warning sign that medical intervention is needed.1

What You Need to Know About Pulse Oximeters

How a Pulse Oximeter Works

A finger pulse oximeter functions by shining red and infrared light through your finger. As these beams pass through your digit, the oximeter’s photodetector measures how much red and infrared light is transmitted through it. This process allows the device to assess how heavily saturated your blood is with oxygen, as well as your current pulse rate. Within a few seconds of measurement, these readings are displayed on the oximeter’s screen as a SpO2 percentage and bpm (beats per minute) number.

Using a Finger Pulse Oximeter

Finger pulse oximeters are built with speed and convenience in mind. All you have to do is slide your index finger into the device’s opening until it touches the built-in stop guide. Your oximeter will automatically turn on, complete a brief self-test and begin to measure your oxygen level and pulse rate. Soon after, the oximeter will display your current SpO2 percentage and pulse rate on its screen. Once you’ve finished measuring, you can simply remove your finger and put your oximeter away; the device will automatically shut off within a few seconds.
