RESTON, VA, March 16, 2010 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Experts agree that a Pulse Oximeter is a great medical device to monitor child asthma. A Finger Pulse Oximeter is a medical device that measures the blood oxygen saturation SpO2 and pulse rate. It is especially useful for individuals with asthma because it shows the percentage of hemoglobin that is carrying oxygen in the blood and thus allows for determining the severity of the asthma attack as well as the response to treatment.
The FDA approved Pediatric Pulse Oximeter C-52 is the world's smallest pulse oximeter. It offers a special design and chipset technology specifically manufactured for a child's finger. It uses a customized pediatric oximetry sensor adjusted for children's skin to ensure accurate readings even for infant and neonatal. Also, accurate readings are provided even if there is rapid movement as children tend to not sit in place. The C-52 model features a multi-color OLED display along with Perfusion Index. The C-52 is widely used in hospitals, pediatrician offices, emergency and ambulatory situations, as well as inside the home.
"Asthma is the leading cause of chronic illness in children in the United States. Statistics say that it affects as many as 10%-12% of children and this amount is ever increasing," said Dr. Shiv Khanna of Lavale Clinic based in Cumberland, MD. "What makes it particularly frustrating for parents of children with asthma is that many times the child can not express the fact that he is short of breath or is having trouble breathing."
Being small and portable, the C-52 Child Fingertip Oximeter allows parents to have the power to monitor their child asthma wherever they go. For example, when a child with asthma is playing on the playground, the parents can simply ask the child to put their finger in the Pulse Oximeter and within seconds the parents can determine whether their child is getting enough oxygen or if they need to take a rest.
