Frequently Asked Questions

Troubleshooting

What should I do if my iHealth Wireless Pulse Oximeter does not turn on?

The battery may be low. Charge the device using the included USB cable.

What should I do if the Bluetooth connection failed?

Restart the iHealth Wireless Pulse Oximeter and relaunch the app. Be sure you are using iOS version 5.0 or above.

What should I do if my iHealth Wireless Pulse Oximeter does not show any results after performing the test?

Make sure your finger is inserted correctly. Open the clamp of the pulse oximeter, and then place your middle, ring or index finger of your left hand into the rubber opening with your nail side down. With your finger in the correct position, keep perfectly still and test it again.

The “iHealth SpO2” app is unable to find the iHealth Pulse Oximeter.

Re-establish the Bluetooth connection by turning Bluetooth “On” under the “Settings” menu of your iOS device. The pulse oximeter will connect automatically when the app is launched. If it is still not successful, restart your iOS device and the meter and try again. 

Setup and Usage

How many measurements can be stored on the iHealth Wireless Pulse Oximeter?

The iHealth Wireless Pulse Oximeter can store up to 100 measurements. 

Which mobile app is used with the iHealth Wireless Pulse Oximeter?

The “iHealth SpO2” app from the App Store works with the iHealth Pulse Oximeter and requires iOS version 5.0 or higher.

Can the iHealth Wireless Pulse Oximeter be used with more than one iPhone, iPad or iPod touch?

Yes. You can use the Pulse Oximeter with more than one iPhone, iPad or iPod touche. Install the “iHealth SpO2” app on each device you intend to use with your iHealth Pulse Oximeter and log in using the same account

How many measurements can be stored in the App?

Is the iHealth Wireless Pulse Oximeter waterproof?

The iHealth Wireless Pulse Oximeter is not waterproof. Do not immerse the device in water. If it gets wet, wipe it with a dry towel. 

Product Information

How does the iHealth Wireless Pulse Oximeter work?

The iHealth Pulse Oximeter (PO3) measures the amount of oxygen in your blood and your pulse rate. The oximeter works by shining two light beams into the small blood vessels or capillaries of your finger, reflecting the amount of oxygen in the blood and displaying the measurement on the oximeter’s screen. The oxygen saturation (SpO2) is measured as a percentage of full capacity.

What is oxygen saturation (SpO2)? What is the normal range for SpO2??

Oxygen saturation (SpO2) is a measurement of how much oxygen your blood is carrying as a percentage of the maximum it could carry. For a healthy individual, the normal SpO2 should be between 96% to 99%. High altitudes and other factors may affect what is considered normal for a given individual. 

What is considered the normal range for pulse rate? What are some factors that can influence pulse rate?

The normal resting pulse rate is between 60 and 100 beats per minute.

Many factors can influence pulse rate, including but not limited to physical activities, fitness level, emotional state, body weight, medications and body position. 

What type of conditions may affect my SpO2 reading?

Cold hands, weak pulse, hand movements, fingernail polish and acrylic nails are some of the most common factors that may affect a reading and cause inaccurate results. 

Can SpO2 be used overnight?

The iHealth Pulse Oximeter is designed for spot checks. Currently it does not support continuous measurements.     

What does PI mean?

Perfusion Index, or PI, is a relative assessment of the pulse strength at the monitoring site. PI ranges from .01%(very weak pulse strength) to 20%(very strong pulse strength). PI is a relative number and varies between monitoring sites and from patient to patient, as physiologic conditions vary.

What is Perfusion Index?

Perfusion Index, or PI, is a relative assessment of the pulse strength at the monitoring site.  PI ranges from .01%(very weak pulse strength) to 20%(very strong pulse strength). PI   is a relative number and varies between monitoring sites and from patient to patient, as   physiologic conditions vary.

What kind of conditions may affect my reading?

Cold hands, weak pulse, hand movements, fingernail polish and acrylic nails are some of   the most common factors that may affect a reading and cause inaccurate results.

How many measurements can be stored in the iHealth Wireless Pulse Oximeter?

Up to 100 measurements are automatically saved in the iHealth Wireless Pulse Oximeter  when you measure offline.

What is the measuring range and accuracy for iHealth Wireless Pulse Oximeter?

SpO2 measuring range: 70-99%.

Average Root Mean Square (ARMS) of SpO2 accuracy: 80%∼99%: ±2%,  70%∼79%:±3%, <70%: no definition.   Pulse rate measuring range: 30-250bpm.   Pulse rate accuracy: 30∼99bpm: ±2bpm, 100∼250bpm: ±2%.  * When does the battery light indicator appear in the display?  The battery light indicator appears when the battery is low.
