Pulse Oximetry for Home

Providing you with accurate and reliable oxygen level readings for COVID-19 screening

"When you combine heart rate measurement, oxygen saturation and temperature, which are all three things you can do at home - that's incredibly informative." 

- Dr. Richard Levitan, Emergency Room Physician

Reliable Readings at Your Fingertips

The CM Oximeter is a hospital-grade fingertip oximeter and is designed for personal use, giving you access to oxygen saturation (SpO2), pulse rate (PR), and low perfusion pulse index (PI) readings simultaneously, and can be used to:

  • Monitor for COVID-19: Pulse oximeters can help identify blood oxygen desaturation due to "silent" hypoxia, one of the main symptoms of COVID-191
  • Track Your Personal Health: Monitor increases and decreases in saturation to track and share information with a specialist
  • Push Your Physical Activity: Use a pulse oximeter to asses your ability to tolerate increased physical activity during training
  • Spot-Check Your Oxygen Saturation Percentage: Check your SpO2 to make sure you are within a health range (between 95 to 100 percent)

A Valuable Tool for the Family First Aid Kit

Now more than ever, it is important to keep an eye on your family's health. This could include symptom and/or temperature screening, as well as blood oxygenation spot checks using a pulse oximeter. Consider the addition of a pulse oximeter to your family's first aid kit. 

Monitoring oxygen saturation (SpO2) can be an effective method for keeping your family 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.

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.


CM Fingertip Oximeter

The CM personal use fingertip oximeter is an FDA-cleared, hospital-grade device that measures oxygen saturation (SpO2), pulse rate (PR) and low perfusion oxygen saturation (PI). Suitable for home use measurement of oxygen levels.
