Around the neck lanyards are also available and have a breakaway feature for safety and convenience. Wrist bands and extensions are available particularly to use with wrist-worn pulse oximeters.

We have a variety of sensors available including articulated adult finger clip sensors with a choice of 3', 6' or 9' connectors. These are reusable and ideal when the need is for short-term monitoring, stress-testing or spot checks and cross-contamination is not likely. Also comes in a pediatric version with a 3' connector.

Cables

For oximeters in hospital setting, the long cables are needed to be able to easily move the oximeter around. You can choose from a variety of cables such as nurse call cables in either two or three meter lengths. Other cables include sensor extension cables, USB computer download cables (for WristOx2) and WristOx2 adapter cables used for connecting 3150 or PureLight 9-pin sensors. Also find a selection of serial cables for use with various PalmSAT models.

Batteries

It is important to use and replace the correct battery for oximeters. We have a variety of battery types used in pulse oximeters such as the 7.2-volt NiMH battery pack, N-cell batteries and AA 6-cell NiMH battery packs.

Power Supplies

Universal Nonin chargers are available with your choice of power cord to fit the outlet configuration of the country in which the unit will be used. We also have the complete universal charging setup for the Nonin PalmSAT 2500 that includes the power supply with cord, rechargeable battery pack, charging stand and owner’s manual.

Flex Wraps

These flexible sensors are a combination of a reusable sensor and a disposable adhesive wrap that keeps the sensor in place on the finger. Flex Wraps are available in three types: adult, infant and neonatal.

Stands

Tabletop oximeters can become portable units with the use of either of the 5-wheel rolling stands in either standard or deluxe models. Both feature adjustable pole heights and can easily bring a monitor in close proximity to a patient's bedside.

Software/Printers

The data-management software allows for the collection and retention of patient data, creation of reports and enables that data to be faxed from the computer. Special printers are available to print color graphs in large font for easy reading or condensed for inclusion on a patient's chart.

Tubing

The tubings are helpful to get a sample of EtCO2 while the patient is still breathing. It includes a NIBP (non-invasive blood pressure) tubing in a choice of straight or coiled. We also have Salter Labs® sample lines and cannulas and dual lines that deliver oxygen while simultaneously sampling CO2 levels.
