So you just got yourself a fancy Facelake pulse oximeter, huh? Congrats! But before you start measuring your blood oxygen levels and impressing all your friends with your new toy, there’s one little problem: you have no idea how to use it.
Don’t worry, I’ve been there.
I remember the first time I got my hands on one of these bad boys.
I was so excited to use it, but as soon as I took it out of the box, I was hit with a wave of confusion.
I had no idea what all the buttons and numbers meant.
But let me tell you, it’s not as hard as it looks.
In fact, it’s pretty easy once you know the basics.
So, let me share with you a personal story.
Once upon a time, I was at a friend’s house and we were all hanging out in the living room.
My friend, who is a nurse, had just gotten a new pulse oximeter and she was showing it off to everyone.
I was intrigued and asked if I could use it.
She handed it to me and said, “Sure, just put it on your finger and wait for the reading.
” I put it on my finger and waited.
I looked at my friend confused and she burst out laughing.
“You have to turn it on first, silly!” she said.
The moral of the story? Always make sure your pulse oximeter is turned on before taking a reading!
