FamilyDoc Pulse Oximeter is a particularly convenient noninvasive measurement instrument. It is portable, battery-operated and available for home blood-oxygen monitoring. It displays the percentage of arterial hemoglobin in the oxyhemoglobin configuration. Acceptable normal ranges are from 95 to 100 percent, although values down to 90% are common. For a patient breathing room air, at not far above sea level, an estimate of arterial SpO2 can be made from the blood-oxygen monitor SpO2 reading.

Frequently Asked Questions
- What is a Pulse Oximeter?
A pulse oximeter is a newer type of medical device that measures the oxygen saturation of a patient's blood using optical technology. The traditional way of measuring oxygen saturation is through a blood sample. The pulse oximeter measures changes in blood volume in the skin, producing a photoplethysmography.
- What is a photoplethysmograph?
A photoplethysmograph is an optically obtained plethysmograph, which is a volumetric measurement of an organ. This is often obtained by using a pulse oximeter which illuminates the skin and measures changes in light absorption and monitors the perfusion of blood to the dermis and subcutaneous tissue of the skin.
- Are Pulse Oximeters covered by my flexible spending account?
In many cases your flexible spending account will help pay for your oximeter. If you are planning on purchasing an oximeter on your flexible spending account, we recommend to contact your representative before purchasing the oximeter to verify that they will help cover it.
