Before I go into how this oximeter performed, let me tell you a little bit about what an oximeter is and what the numbers mean. I feel like it's important for me to write about that because I didn't know what they were or that you could purchase them for in home use. I know that every time I go to the doctor, I place my finger in it and it tells them the reading. So here we go. An Oximeter is a device that is used to indirectly measure the amount of oxygen in the blood. The Sp02 is written as a percentage that should be between 90%-100%. Normal levels are usually 96-100 where levels under 90 are indicative of respiratory failure.
This oximeter is totally worth it. It's well made, durable (I know because I dropped it) and has been very accurate. I got the SM-150 for my mother in law and I got this SM-165 for my family to see the differences were in the products. In my opinion, they are both very good. The only thing different to me was the display. This oximeter measures quickly and accurately the pulse rate and the Sp02. It has a very bright LED display that shows real time pulse rate, pulse rate bar graph and Sp02 level and battery level. The thing I love the most is that you can view the display in any angle because of it's rotatable multi directional display. It's very comfortable and light. My fingers seem to fit in the SM-165 better than the 150. It also has an automatic 8 second shut off,
By purchasing this Oximeter on Amazon, you are getting an outstanding deal. What is normally $220.00, you only have to pay $29.95. It's important to note that this particular Oximeter is FDA approved. If for any reason you don't like this oximeter, you can return it for a full refund.
