TempIR Portable Pulse Oximeter – Frequently Asked Questions
The TempIR Portable Pulse Oximeter is designed to give fast, accurate readings of both pulse rates and the blood oxygen saturation levels of arterial haemoglobin – otherwise known as SPO2 levels. It’s useful to monitor the heart rate before, during and after exercise, and it is particularly helpful for tracking the SPO2 levels of people with chronic respiratory system conditions such as asthma, emphysema and cystic fibrosis. These are some of the most Frequently Asked Questions about the TempIR Portable Pulse Oximeter.
Q. Why do I need an oximeter – I’m perfectly healthy, and I’m not into working out?
A. Oximeters are useful in many situations. For example, if you meditate, an oximeter will record your pulse rate and show if your meditation is effective. And if a member of the family develops breathing problems, the oximeter reading will help your doctor to make an informed diagnosis. It’s a ‘peace of mind’ piece of home health care equipment.
Q. Can I use it on my children?
A. Yes! Unlike some products on the market, the TempIR Oximeter is designed to fit snugly on the fingertips of babies, children and adults.
Q. How accurate is it?
A. Very accurate, but don’t take our word for it. Read the reviews and see what health care professionals have to say about it.
Q. I’m a health care professional myself – is TempIR suitable to use on multiple patients?
A. Absolutely! Our oximeter is made to a high specification, and it’s robust enough and accurate enough for professional use in health care facilities. Many doctors and nurses use and recommend the TempIR Oximeter.
Q. Does it need special, expensive batteries?
A. Not at all. The oximeter runs on regular AAA batteries which last for thousands of readings. And there’s an automatic power shut off to conserve battery life.
Q. Is it easy to use?
A. Yes, but it’s also supplied with an instruction leaflet, if you are unsure about anything. And our dedicated Customer Service Team are always happy to help with any queries you may have.
Q. How do I find out what my SPO2 level should be?
A. Healthy SPO2 levels are between 95 and 98. Most doctors say a reading below 92 should be investigated, so it’s a good idea to check with your own doctor when your individual SPO2 level means you need to give him a call. For extra peace of mind, there’s a built in alarm which can be set to warn of high and low readings for both the pulse and SPO2 levels.
Q. What if I decide I don’t need an oximeter after all, or if it’s not accurate?
A. We’re sure that when you have your oximeter, you’ll find it very useful, and it should be accurate, as it’s made to a very high specification and tested rigorously and regularly for quality control. However, if you’re not happy with your purchase, contact our Customer Service Team as our oximeter is the only one backed by a lifetime replacement or refund guarantee, so you can purchase with confidence.
The TempIR Portable Pulse Oximeter is a great home health care product which is helpful for managing chronic respiratory conditions, checking on the health of family members and monitoring fitness levels. Every home should have one!
