This reusable rubber pulse oximetry sensor is designed for short-term, continuous monitoring. Integrating easily into your workflow, it’s:
And because it’s compliant with the latest standards,† you can use the Nellcor™ flexible SpO2 sensor with Oximax™ technology in the hospital, for transport, or at home.
The Nellcor™ flexible SpO2 sensor is compatible with RCAL and Oximax™ technology. So you can easily use it with your existing Nellcor™-compatible monitors.
Our sensor is designed for short-term (<6 hours) continuous monitoring for the majority of your patients. It features:
The Nellcor™ flexible SpO2 sensor is highly versatile and can be used† in:
The Nellcor™ flexible SpO2 sensor is engineered for dippable cleaning to enhance workflow efficiency. Proper cleaning of pulse oximeter probes may reduce infection transmission in the ICU.([FOOTNOTE=Goodall JR, Allan WBD. Pulse-oximetry in intensive care: Hazard warning or potential hazard?
