The SM-165 comes with 2 AAA batteries, a protective carrying case and lanyard. After inserting the batteries the unit is ready to use. It can be used on adults and children. Some of my favorite features are the large lit, easy-to-read display and that when not in use the unit will shut off. Results are nearly immediate.
Note: patients cannot have long fingernails or fingernail polish for the oximeter to work correctly.
I can personally vouch for the accuracy of this device. This weekend our 5 year old daughter woke up in hysterics and in a panic. She was coughing like a seal and struggling to breathe all while crying and screaming. My poor baby! I felt so bad. Dad got up to help calm her down. Mike was more nervous than I was. It was in that moment after having calming our daughter down that I grabbed the oximeter I received for review and asked Renee for a finger. To my relief her oxygen levels were good at 98.
We bundled up and drove to the hospital. I knew that although there was something wrong I was slightly less panicked knowing she was getting the oxygen she needed. The ER doctor determined right off she has the classic case of Pediatric Croup. Something we've never dealt with. After a chest x-ray and some medicine we were on our way home and back to bed.
