Are you wasting SpO2 sensors?

If you think remanufactured and reprocessed sensors are the same, take a closer look. Medtronic put 160 sensors—originally manufactured by Medtronic and later reprocessed by Stryker—through the same tests we use for Medtronic-produced new and remanufactured Nellcor™ pulse oximetry sensors. Check out the results.

Remanufactured versus reprocessed: there is a difference.

20% of Stryker N sensors failed visual inspection and would be considered out-of-the-box failures.

Program Requirements

  • Sensor return requirement -to participate in the Nellcor™ pulse oximetry sensor sustainability program, a participating facility must return no less than 85% of its collected, used sensors to Medtronic (through the Cardinal Health recycling buckets).
  • For a committed Nellcor™ pulse oximetry account, participating the facility must maintain at least 85% of its pulse oximetry purchases with Medtronic.

  • Nellcor™ pulse oximetry sensor sustainability programs are only available in the United States.

  • The Nellcor™ pulse oximetry monitoring system should not be used as the sole basis for diagnosis or therapy and is intended only as an adjunct in patient assessment.
