Masimo is known among health care professionals as a leader in health sensor technology. Now with the iSpO2, they bring their industry leading pulse oximeter technology to the Consumer Electronics Show at CES Unveiled.
Max Safai from Masimo joins Jamie Davis, the Podmedic to talk about their first venture into the consumer electronics marketplace, the iSpO2 home pulse oximeter for iOS devices. When you plug the device into your compatible iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch you see your heart rate, perfusion index and a number representing the percent of oxygen saturation in your blood, ranging from 0 to 100. Health care professionals use this tool all the time to help gain a glimpse into what’s going on inside a patient during an exam or hospitalization.
Track Health Data, Contact Caregivers
The mobile app can track your data and email that data to your caregivers, home care nurse, or primary care physician allowing them to have increased oversight without bringing you back to their office for a visit. The iSpO2 is currently available on Amazon.com and iSpO2.com for $249.00.
