Nellcor™ sensor products with OxiMax™ technology are remanufactured to meet the same quality specifications as new Nellcor™ sensors.

When a hospital purchases remanufactured Nellcor™ sensors from Medtronic, it's getting high-quality products at significant cost savings. The sensors are remanufactured to original quality specifications.

The Nellcor™ Sensor Remanufacturing Program Makes Good Business Sense

Remanufacturing Nellcor™ sensors cuts the cost of medical supplies, reduces medical waste and helps the environment.

†When used with Nellcor pulse oximeters. For use with other manufacturers’ monitors, obtain relevant information from those manufacturers. All accuracies are expressed as ± “X” digits. Pulse oximeter equipment measurements are statically distributed; about two-thirds of pulse oximeter measurements can be expected to fall in this accuracy range.

*Remanufactured sensors have only been validated in the 70% - 100% SpO2 range. Neonate specifications are shown for OXIMAX MAX-N sensors with the N-600x.

Clinical functionality of the MAX-N sensor has been demonstrated on a population of hospitalized neonate patients. The observed SpO2 accuracy was 2.5% in a study of 42 patients with ages of 1 to 23 days, weight from 750 to 4,100 grams, and 63 observations made spanning a range of 85% to 99% SaO2.



Pulse oximetry innovation

OxiMax™ technology opens up a whole new world of pulse oximetry innovation that can help clinicians provide better patient care by more effectively monitoring a broader range of patients, including those who may have been difficult to monitor in the past based on certain clinical considerations.
