Overnight Oximetry

People who suffer from what they suspect to be a sleep disorder often have a hard time pinpointing the exact condition that’s keeping them up at night.

One of the most popular diagnostic tests is to have patients undergo an overnight pulse oximetry test screening, which can provide the crucial data needed to determine whether a patent suffers from sleep apnea or other common sleep disorders.

This simple test evaluates blood oxygen levels and can be done at home. Unlike other diagnostic methods used to detect sleep apnea, oximetry is so simple that there’s little chance the patient will make a mistake in using the device.

WristOx_2_SpO2This can be seen in the technologically sophisticated but surprisingly simple Nonin WristOx 2, Model 3150, the most advanced wrist-worn pulse oximeter available, and can be used for cardio-ambulatory monitoring, remote wireless monitoring and overnight studies. Patients simply wear the device like a wristwatch, then connect the easy-fit sensor to the end of their index finger.

Capable of storing 1,080 hours of memory, the WristOx 2 measures the pulse rate and SPO2 values at various sampling rates. For more efficient diagnosis, the unit can securely transfer data via Bluetooth to nVISION Data Management Software to generate a full report from the data collected by the oximeter.

Versatile, simple and comfortable, the WristOx 2 is an essential piece of equipment for any office or practice that regularly deals with patients suffering from sleep disorders.

Medical Device Depot, Inc. Donates EKG Machines to Promise for Haiti

Medical Device Depot recently donated two GE Mac 1200 EKG Machines to Promise for Haiti. These EKG machines will be used to assist daily services at the Hopital Bienfaisance de Pignon in Haiti.

Dr. Omer L. Shedd has these words to say regarding the donation:

 


I wanted to write a note of my sincerest appreciation for your kind donation of ekg machines for Promise for Haiti.  This hospital mission is truly unique in that it requires Haitians to have an active role in their health care and is not just another donation driven facility giving solely handouts.  Their mission is to teach the Haitians skills to eventually become self sustaining.

I will be going back down later this year and will try to get some pictures to you.  We look to start implanting pacemakers in early 2015 and could not have done this without your help!!!

Thank you again,
Omer L. Shedd, MD, FACC, FHRS
