About a year ago, Masimo introduced its pulse oximetry technology to the mobile market by releasing the iSpO2 device. It works with the iPhone to display live oxygen saturation (SpO2), pulse rate (PR), and perfusion index data using the same fingertip light sensor found on hospital systems. Now the company is releasing an Android compatible iSpO2 pulse oximeter that plugs into the micro USB port.
Companion software can be downloaded from the Google Play Store that in addition to displaying live readings, offers sharing options, and stores data for later review.
iSpO2 – extremely lightweight at just 232 grams or about 0.5 pounds – also displays the pleth waveform and Signal IQ™ so users can visually assess where the pulse is occurring and the quality of the measurement even during motion artifact. iSpO2 can also trend, store, and email up to 12 hours of measurement history in the global standard, .CSV file format, allowing consumers to easily share data through their mobile device email application.
