The BT-700 is a Patient monitor. It measures the SpO2, pulse rate and temperature. It provides continuous and noninvasive information on two important physiological parameters: arterial blood oxygen saturation and pulse rate. This information is obtained through measurement of light intensity transmitted across the finger at two distinct wavelengths, in the red and near-infrared regions of spectrum. This monitor measures functional saturation – oxygenated hemoglobin expressed as a percentage of the hemoglobin that can transport oxygen. It does not detect significant amounts of dysfunctional hemoglobin, such as carboxyhemoglobin or methemoglobin. In contrast, hemoximeters such as the IL482 report fractional saturation – oxygenated hemoglobin expressed as a percentage of all measured hemoglobin, including measured dysfunctional hemoglobins. To compare functional saturation measurements to those from an instrument that measures fractional saturation, fractional measurements must be converted as follows the temperature is measured in the patient’s rectal. The resistance value of the temperature sensor is changed for the patient’s rectal temperature. BT-700 measures it’s resistance, and calculates the temperature. BT-700 has the Auto-calibration functions for each other patient. Internal calibration function starts calibrating when the patient is monitored.
This device is for use only by trained medical personnel located in hospitals, clinics, doctor’s offices.
