Breath Pulse Oximeter
Breath Pulse Oximeter

Breath is a portable pulse oximeter that works by reflectance pulse oximetry. It was designed to be a single system device with reduced size, wich means it is totally portable and it has no cables to connect the sensor to the console. Also, by making use of the reflectance method, it is able to use the forehead as it's main measure spot. The forehead is the most recommended measuring spot in oximetry. A simple clip solution makes it easy to fasten the device in a headband in order to keep it still. But, once more thanks to the method and the clip solution, Breath can also be placed in various points throughout the surface of a patient's body.
