Nellcor™ pulse oximetry with OxiMax™ technology specifies a highly accurate measurement of SpO2.([FOOTNOTE=Mannheimer PD, Nooshin AA et al. NellcorTM OximaxTMPulse Oximeter Accuracy, White Paper, 2006.],[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 paediatric (weighing more than 10 kg) to adult
  • Single-patient use, featuring long-lasting, four-layer adhesive
