I do love a good bundle and this one sure has it all. Wow. It’s always nice to get an item you need that comes with all of the accessories you need and then some. Those that require you to purchase accessories extra can really get annoying… and expensive. I like receiving a packaged set and finding that I don’t have to go online and make an additional order or make a trip to the store to pick up the cord or batteries that were necessary, but not indicated
The Concord Emerald Fingertip Pulse Oximeter comes with:
- The Oximeter
- 2 AAA batteries
- Carrying case
- Reusable foam padded box
- Shock-resistant rubber cover
- 2 year warranty
This is the first oximeter unit that has had only two negative reviews out of 151. Just wait until you read what people have to say!
The Physician’s Choice
I don’t really know if this is the physician’s choice, but the web site says so, so I’m passing it on. They also say it is for use by health care workers, athletes, pilots, you, and me. (Though they don’t refer to us by name) Those with COPD, asthma, mesothelioma and other lung or heart problems will find that this unit is perfect for their needs. Even athletes who engage in mountain climbing sports use this unit.
The advanced technology in the Concord Emerald Fingertip Pulse Oximeter monitors SpO2, or blood oxygen and heart rate. It does this via bright red LED display light. The unit has one button operation and an auto shutoff after 8 seconds.
Who Should Use It?
- Patients with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease
- Those with asthma
- Anyone with lung disease
- People who use supplementary oxygen
- Anyone with heart disease
- People discharged from the hospital with a need to monitor blood oxygen levels
- Athletes who work out in extreme conditions such as mountain climbing
So, What Are They Saying?
People had a tough time coming up with negatives for this unit. Its 4.7 out of 5 star rating was accompanied by comments such as:
One Internal Medicine/Cardiologist recommends the Concord Emerald Fingertip Pulse Oximeter and uses it multiple times per day on his patients. An Intensive Care Unit nurse loves the compact unit and says it is prompt, accurate, and reliable. A wife discovered that her husband does not need to carry around his portable oxygen tank as much as they thought – his ability to see his oxygen levels has made a huge change in his lifestyle! And the few customers who had issues with the unit received efficient customer service and had a replacement unit within a day or two.
See what I mean? Doctors, nurses, and concerned relatives are all very happy with everything from the device itself to the customer service. The two negative reviews are not nearly as articulate. One repeats the word junk because he didn’t get through to customer service on the first try. The other one complains that the lanyard cord is too rough. Silly, isn’t it?
