MINNEAPOLIS, March 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Nonin Medical, Inc., the inventor of fingertip pulse oximetry and a leader in noninvasive medical monitoring, announced today that a Memory Volume Indicator (MVI) mode has been added to the company's WristOx2® Model 3150 wrist-worn pulse oximeter. The MVI mode provides a graphic display of the amount of recorded data in the Model 3150 in hours and minutes and helps insure that sufficient data has been recorded during oxygen verification testing.
The WristOx2 Model 3150 is a widely used pulse oximeter which is worn on a patient's wrist. It allows clinicians to monitor a patient's pulse rate and SpO2 levels over a prolonged period, such as during sleep studies. SpO2 is the measurement of oxygen saturation in the blood and can be a vital determinant whether a patient is breathing properly while sleeping.
"The addition of the MVI mode in the Model 3150 WristOx2 is in direct response to customers who have asked us to help them verify their testing data," said Brian Balleria, Product Marketing Manager for Nonin. "By providing the MVI mode, clinicians can now provide Independent Diagnostic Testing Facilities and Home Care companies' proof that sufficient data has been recorded during oxygen verification testing; preventing unnecessary trips for repeat recordings, reducing costs, and improving overall efficiencies."
Nonin is demonstrating the MVI mode in the Model 3150 WristOx2 at the Medtrade Spring Conference in Las Vegas, March 11-13, in booth number 1009.
