PulseOximetersDIRECT.com, an online retailer of portable Pulse Oximeter devices, has introduced new FDA approved Landon Medical PC-60C2 Finger Pulse Oximeter for home use.

The FDA approved Landon Medical PC-60C2 Pulse Oximeter provides digital on spot readings of SpO2 and pulse rate with accuracy and ease. The PC-60C2 Pulse Oximeter combines light weight and portability with multiple features including the OLED color display, Perfusion Index, Plethysmograph and multi-view screen capability all bundled in a device that fits in your pocket.

The online retailer said that the PC-60C2 is of critical importance to those with respiratory and cardiac problems including asthma, COPD, hypoxia, heart arrhythmia, as well as sleep apnea and hypopnea. It is widely used in all health care facilities, including hospitals, physician offices, dental clinics, in sports, as well as for home use.

Robert Darwin, vice president of sales and marketing, said: “A Pulse Oximeter has been an essential medical tool in hospital and health-care settings since the 1940’s to measure SpO2 (blood oxygen saturation) and pulse rate. However, that bulky, antedated pulse oximeter technology of the past has been surpassed by cutting-edge technology from Landon Medical that transforms the typical large oximeter machine into a small, portable device smaller than the size of a pager that can be used in home.”

Shiv Khanna of the Lavale Clinic, based in Cumberland, said: “It is truly a revolutionary technology. It’s so small, lightweight, and accurate giving me on spot readings of SpO2 and pulse rate within seconds. I recommend to my patients to get a pulse oximeter for home use whereby they take measurements wherever they are and share their readings with me for professional diagnosis.”
