The Pulse Oximeter is used to measure the saturation of oxygen in the blood while also giving an accurate count of your pulse rate. This medical device is designed to be portable, lightweight and simple to use. The pulse Oximeter is also used by athletes to measure how their training is progressing and if their ability to absorb more oxygen has increased.
The Niscomed FPO 60 is a novel Pulse Oximeter that is perfect for use at home due to its simple functions and accuracy. The Niscomed FPO 60 is a fingertip pulse Oximeter that snugly fits around your finger to provide you with vital information that was collected through non-invasive methods. The Niscomed FPO 60 also comes with advanced software that can be used for monitoring and studying the sleep and breathing cycle of the patient.
The Niscomed FPO 60 is ergonomically designed to fit around the finger while it reads the vital sign without causing any pain or discomfort to the patient. The compact size of the Niscomed FPO 60 allows the user to wear it comfortably without much strain. The LED display has a resolution of 160 x 128 and comes with true 256k colour. The OLED screen can also be read from any direction as the Niscomed FPO 60 is able to display information based on how you hold it.
The main information shown by the Niscomed FPO 60 is the oxygen saturation in blood and pulse rates. This device can be attached to a computer by way of a USB cable for synchronous display between the Oximeter and computer. The Niscomed FPO 60 comes with a software CD that allows you to connect the computer and Oximeter software.
The Niscomed FPO 60 can be transported easily by using the carry in case or by just hanging it around your neck by using the neck thread. The user-friendly operations menu helps you easily select the different settings available in this device.

The Niscomed FPO 60 has been calibrated at +/- 2 per cent for oxygen saturation and + 1 beats per minute (bpm) for pulse rate. The audio and visual alarm will alert you if there are any abnormal changes in the readings.
