Using an adult-sized pulse oximeter isn't going to work on the index finger of a younger patient. However the Pediatric Handheld Pulse Oximeter by McKesson helps process heart rate and blood oxygen saturation levels in youth patients.
The oximeter has a weight range of 22-110 pounds (10-50 kilograms) and has two working modes: continuous and spot-check. Similar to the adult version, the oximeter has a 2.8-inch TFT (thin-film transistor) display that offers clear and precise readings to the medical professional. It also has the ability to store up to 127 patient ID's and continuously records up to 72 hours of data.
