EarClip - Comfortable and Reliable
Using a SpO2 probe for non-invasive monitoring of arterial oxygen saturation is a standard of care in most hospital set- tings and other medical environments. The most commonly-used probes are placed on the fingertip of the patient. But there are other ways of probe positioning that provide good clinical practice and offer alternatives, especially when the conditions are bad.
The ear lobe is a proven and clinically utilized measuring point. Especially with regard to clinical accuracy the Ear Clip is not only equivalent to the Finger Clip, but in some cases has even been reported to be superior. For children and adults, the ear lobe may be the preferred measuring point due to reduced interference from motion artifacts.
