Monitoring Equipment Examples
One of the most popular devices is the pulse oximeter which is usually paired with blood pressure monitoring
devices, assuring the comfort and safety wanted by sedation patients.
The pulse oximeter typically has a fingertip sensor device that enables effortless and convenient monitoring on the patient's pulse rate (basic vital sign).
Two different types of oximeters are pictured here.
Some devices have roll around stands, some are desk top units while others have a compact design that can be conveniently placed anywhere that is most comfortable for the patient and the dental team.
