When a patient is in respiratory distress and SpO2 is lower than 80%, accurate real-time information is crucial for the right clinical decisions. The unique Expanded Accuracy LoSat™ Accuracy Range 60% to 100% empowers patient management in challenging situations.([FOOTNOTE=FDA 510(k).],[ANCHOR=],[LINK=])

Nellcor™ pulse oximetry with OxiMax™ technology specifies a highly accurate measurement of SpO2, even in some of the most challenging patients.([FOOTNOTE=NCT01720355 at Clinical Trials.gov.],[ANCHOR=],[LINK=])

The Nellcor™ SpO2 forehead sensor:

  • Provides an expanded LoSat accuracy range of 60% – 80% SpO2 +/-3 and delivers reliable readings in challenging conditions4
  • Designed for an accessible sensor site-the forehead is generally easier to reach and less prone to motion than hands
  • Can be used with mechanically ventilated patients
  • Enables monitoring of patients from pediatric (weighing more than 10 kg) to adult
  • Single-patient use, featuring long-lasting, four-layer adhesive
