Pulse Oximeter

In comparison to the 512, the 513 is a lightweight, easy to use, handheld pulse oximeter great for the Veterinary market. The 513 provides reliable continuous measurement and display of the oxygen saturation of arterial blood (SpO2) and pulse rate. In addition, it utilizes Novametrix' patented "digital" technology providing the same improved performance in conditions of motion artifact or low perfusion as found in their full featured pulse oximeters. Features an easy to read LED display with a pulse activity bar to verify signal quality and aid in sensor placement. Includes a Y-site probe. Operates from 2 AA batteries and weighs less than 6 ounces. The difference between the two models is that the 513 carries alarms for different thresholds, along with the ability to show trends and send reports to a printer.. The 513 provides an infrared output allowing trend information to be sent to a printer or downloaded into the NovaCard for Windows Computer Archive Recall and Display software for review and analysis (software and related data accessories sold separately).
