The [email protected] #AretaFingertipPulseOximeter measures SpO2 (blood oxygen saturation levels) and pulse rate quickly and easily in both adults and children. I love how easy this is to use. All I had to do was take it out of the box, turn it on, put it on my finger and I had an almost instant reading.
The measurements are numerical with a plethysmograph however there is also a bar graph so you can see a visual representation of your heart.
The unit is very compact and I love that there that case comes with a long cord so I could easily hang it around my neck. I do not know what my regular readings are or should be, so I intend to take this unit to my doctor during my next visit and discuss that with her. What I do know is I can now easily tell the different between an anxiety attack and what I thought was a fast heartbeat.
