With the increased need for remote disease management, the Onyx II, Model 9560 with Bluetooth® wireless technology provides a pulse oximetry monitoring solution that simplifies the exchange of secure information.
The integration of interoperable Bluetooth® wireless technology in health monitoring devices will allow patients, along with their clinicians, to more easily monitor vital signs in environments never before possible. As a result, patients will be able to go about their daily activities and send their vital data wirelessly through communication devices such as cell phones, PDAs and PCs, etc.
The benefits of this revolutionary product also include dramatic cost savings and reducing the strain put on over-crowded healthcare facilities. By working to streamline the monitoring/data sharing process, this breakthrough device enables clinicians to remotely monitor patients with chronic diseases such as Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), Congestive Heart Failure (CHF) or Asthma.
The Onyx II, Model 9560 with Bluetooth wireless technology is designed with proven PureSAT® oximetry technology and delivers the trusted, precision accuracy of the entire Onyx line. And now with the advantage of wireless monitoring capabilities, the built to last and easy-to-use Onyx II 9560 provides unparalleled versatility for you and your clinician. Color coded readings (good reading, fair reading, and poor reading) let you quickly determine the accuracy of a reading so you know how well the device is formulating measurements from your fingertip. Plus, with the addition of innovative new features such as Extended Range and Power Saver make it ideal for home patient use.
What's in the box: oximeter, lanyard, carrying case, 2 AAA batteries, both CD-ROM and paper instructions.
Question will be displayed after moderation.
I planned to use the 9560 to measure my pulse and oxygen saturation while performing activities such as reading, driving, and exercise. While I am able to use it that way, there are some problems I hadn't anticipated.
What's good: It seems quite accurate, when compared to other sensors and to personal experience. It takes ordinary AAA batteries. It reports to readily accessible Android apps such as myFitnessCompanion. Contrary to some assertions on the web, it is able to report in "continuous mode," giving a measurement every few seconds that your finger is in the unit. And it seems quite durable.
But it has some issues. First, it turns out that resting your hand or arm in certain positions can reduce your pulse enough that the 9560 can't detect it. It can also detect your pulse incorrectly without telling you. The manual discusses this can happen -- that's one reason it reports your pulse rate: so you can check it against the pulse rate you otherwise measure.
Second, it squeezes the heck out of your finger. Leaving it on for more than 15 minutes can hurt, so I end up shifting it from hand to hand. Despite that, it's easy to bump it off or otherwise make it lose track of your pulse.
And finally, it's really quite heavy and the largest thing I've ever attached to my finger. My fingers are strong, yet trying to drive (or even pedal a stationary bicycle) while wearing it is tiring. While there may be something nearby to rest it on, that generally doesn't allow your arm or hand to move much, which is itself tiring.
In short, it's most useful for taking a single measurement several times a day (which is what it's clearly intended for). However, in that case you might be better off with the more easily available (and cheaper) 9550, and just record the numbers yourself a few times a day. Bluetooth may be more convenient, but it's no panacea.
