The finger you are testing needs to be clean and the sensor pad on the pulse oximeter is also clean. Relax your arm on a surface that is flat, open clamp then inserts test finger into the device. Press the button for power and hold until measurements are showing on the monitor.
Oximeter used continually
The pulse oximeter is designed to take readings as the oximeter attached to the finger. The battery-saving automatic shutdown feature will stop after 8 seconds of inactivity. Any excessive user movement will give up inaccurate readings.
Maintain pulse oximeter
During the life of your oximeter, it needs to be stored in a dry area as any extreme moisture of humidity could cause problems with the device. Also, avoid any contact to direct sunlight. If you do not use it often, remove batteries when not using.
Will this be more accurate while walking or moving? For the most accurate results, it is best to remain still as this ensures that the finger is still or is not shaking.
