Like other anesthesia pulse sensors, the Nasal Alar Pulse Oximetry Sensor from Bell Medical is designed for low profusion patients and multi-day stay ICU patients. The Nasal Alar Pulse Oximeter Probe is FDA approved for up to 28 days on a patient.
The Nasal Alar Pulse Oximeter Probe is lightweight and comfortable to wear. Patients LOVE IT!
Nasal Alar Pulse Oximetry Sensor works on the most challenging patients!
Reliable accuracy – unaffected by poor peripheral perfusion or low saturations with Nasal Alar Pulse Oximetry Sensor
This oxygen and pulse sensor fits comfortably on the fleshy part of the side of the nose. The site is fed by both the external and internal carotid arteries; the latter also provides blood to the brain. The rich vascular supply to this region provides a strong, reliable signal, even when it is difficult or impossible to get a signal at the fingertips.
Monitoring Site results in faster detection of oxygen saturation changes with Nasal Alar Pulse Oximetry Sensor
Because the Nasal Alar Pulse Oximeter Probe measures the oxygen saturation from a vessel also supplying blood to the brain, changes have been proven to be detected up to 30 seconds faster than with a finger sensor.
Improved patient comfort with Nasal Alar Pulse Oximetry Sensor
The hands-free Alar oxygen and pulse sensor does not impede normal patient functions such as eating, drinking, or talking. It is less bothersome to the patient and is not likely to become disconnected.
Cost effective and convenient with Nasal Alar Pulse Oximetry Sensor
The single-patient-use Alar Sensor does not use adhesives at the sensor site. The sensor can be removed and reapplied for up to 7 days saving hospitals up to $232 for the ICU patient. Proven accuracy reduces false alarms improving patient safety, patient satisfaction and nurse productivity.
