MINNEAPOLIS, June 16, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Nonin Medical, Inc., the inventor of finger pulse oximetry and a leader in noninvasive medical monitoring, today announced it has globally launched the NoninConnect™ Elite Model 3240 Bluetooth® Smart wireless finger pulse oximeter for clinicians and their patients.
The NoninConnect Elite measures arterial blood oxygen saturation and pulse rate and features Nonin's clinically proven PureSAT® pulse oximetry technology. The device is designed to help clinicians and their patients with challenging respiratory conditions like COPD to proactively identify issues for early intervention and avoid re-hospitalization. (An oximeter prescription is required for patients in the U.S.)
"Making the right decision for patients who have COPD and complicating co-morbidities such as CHF often depends on getting an accurate oxygen saturation reading," said Rick Eagle, vice president of sales for Nonin Medical.
"We've known for some time that not all FDA-cleared pulse oximeters perform alike on all patients," he added.
"However, a new independent hypoxia lab study on humans, which simulated COPD patient conditions, demonstrates that Nonin's PureSAT pulse oximetry technology captures and reports worsening patient conditions better than other FDA-cleared oximeter brands," Eagle said.
"These findings are significant for clinicians who want a pulse oximeter that is going to be accurate, reliable and cost effective for all patients, including very sick patients like those with COPD," Eagle said.
Easy to Use, Easy to Share
The NoninConnect Elite uses state-of-the-art Bluetooth Smart (low energy) wireless technology to allow clinicians to remotely (up to 10m/32 ft) view their patients' SpO2 readings in real time. Clinicians and patients can easily save or share their SpO2 history via e-mail, using the NoninConnect iOS mobile app on their compatible Apple device. Patients are able to share spot-check readings via Apple's Health app. Compatible devices with the NoninConnect Elite and NoninConnect app include: iPhone® 4S and newer, iPad® 3 and newer, all iPad Air and iPad Minis, and the iPod® Touch 5th edition and newer (with Apple iOS 8.1 or newer installed).
