From blood oxygen levels to pulse rate and strength, here's everything you need to know about fingertip pulse oximeters

Your SpO2 reading is a measure of the amount of oxygen in your blood. According to Mayo Clinic, an SpO2 reading of 95% or more is generally considered to be a normal blood oxygen level*. A reading of 94% or less (at sea level) suggests that your blood oxygen saturation level is low. People who live at high altitudes may display lower SpO2 readings.

What is a fingertip pulse oximeter?

A fingertip pulse oximeter is a small, portable and non-invasive device that indirectly monitors your blood oxygen saturation (SpO2) and pulse rate (heart rate).

How does a pulse oximeter work?

When the device is clipped onto your fingertip, it transmits two wavelengths of light through the finger to measure pulse rate and how much oxygen is in the blood.
