For parents, nothing comes before their child, and when the kid falls ill, they want to make sure that he or she gets all the care needed to make him or her recuperate. A child is that precious. A children oximeter is a must-have medical device for people who have kids who are caught in the unfortunate grip of asthma or any other respiratory syndrome.

The primary function of a Children pulse oximeter is to monitor the percentage of oxygen saturation in blood. The device helps parents monitor the health of their child and take the kid to the doctor before the problem aggravates. The device also helps monitor the heart rate of the person using it, in this case your child.

It could help kids with asthma problem. Parents can use this to monitor the pulse rate and oxygen level in the blood, as said above, but the best thing about children oximeter is that it is very small in size – around half the size of a normal cell phone – and it operates on a battery, which can be replaced easily when discharged. It can be carried anywhere in the pocket. It can provide an on-site oxygen-level monitoring solution to kids.This makes the device very powerful, as the energy and storage requirement is not very high.

Children oximeter typically runs on 2 AAA alkaline batteries. You can also use 2 AAA rechargeable batteries, instead. And the device is used on the finger of the subject, preferably on the index or the middle finger on the left hand. Children oximeter is like a clip which fits snuggly on the finger it is attached to. The inside of the both the blades of the device are nicely padded so that the subject remains comfortable when his or her finger is placed in between them. A children oximeter also comes with a string which you can use to hang the device in a safe place.

How to get the best reading on a children oximeter

For the device to be useful in monitoring the oxygen level in the blood as well as the pulse rate, it is very much essential that it is used properly.

When taking a reading of your child you should make sure that he is comfortably seated or laid on his or her back. If the child was engaged in some physical activity then give him or her some time (10-15 minutes) to settle down, so that he or she is not breathing heavily when the reading is taken.

Another thing you need to be sure of when using the oximeter is that the child should not make any movement during the reading. This may give a wrong reading, and a wrong reading is as good as no reading. Explain this to your child. He will cooperate with you.

For a household which has a kid with breathing problem, children oximeter is a must-have medical device. Without this device, it will be difficult for the parents to keep a close watch on the health of their child.Keeping a close eye on the oxygen level in the blood is required to manage the health condition of an asthmatic patient.
