US-based Nonin Medical has collaborated with Canada-based Ideal Life for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) remote patient monitoring.


Under the deal, Ideal Life will incorporate the Nonin Model 3230 Bluetooth Smart wireless finger pulse oximeter into its latest telehealth platform.

The Ideal Life system will remotely monitor the oxygen saturation and other vital signs of chronic illness patients at home and transmits the data to the hospital or clinic.

Ideal Life president Jason Goldberg said: "We focus on keeping healthcare professionals connected to their patients by delivering solutions that leverage high quality products and services.

"The latest is the Model 3230 Bluetooth Smart Pulse Oximeter from Nonin Medical, a high quality partner in medical sensing, with high quality products."

Model 3230 features low energy wireless technology and PureSAT pulse oximetry technology that utilizes intelligent pulse-by-pulse filtering to provide precise oximetry measurements.

It also features CorrectCheck technology that offers digital feedback when the patient’s finger is placed incorrectly in the device and SmartPoint capture algorithm, which automatically determines when the quality measurement is ready to be wirelessly transmitted to help improve accuracy.
