Do they fit on little fingers I've been advised to buy one for my 5 year old as she's quite severely asthmatic and the doc thinks it would help us to know when she needs to go hospital as she gets ill very suddenly.
These are for adults, I would be wary to use it to make judgements in children

NHS pay over £150 for these and they're no more accurate, and they wonder why the govt doesn't want to give them yet more money.

My company works with CCGs across England. Thats just one relatively cheap example, you should see how much agencies charge for staff, how much IT equipment costs via contracts. Its a battle to get things changed as partly there is an approved list, but mainly the companies supplying 'know' people and keep them happy. Pharmaceutical companies used to be the worst, we'll give your staff holidays etc if you buy our drugs, luckily that was put paid to but they're still tugging the strings behind a series of front companies.
And I sit on the other side. So I negotiate the discounts. I don't get paid anything at all from these companies. Don't even get a free pen nowadays as it is against regulations. The only thing I can get for free is staff equipment training, which is great!

Whilst everything is expensive in the UK and medical equipment particularly so. I still havent seen any evidence that a super cheap chinese oximeter is better or equivalent to the better established manufacturers. But there are some newcomers that are breaking the mould.

A good example being Mindray. Cheaper than major players and some very good products, but not everything is up to the standard of established manufacturers. Critical monitoring equipment is very good and reasonably priced compared to Philips for example. But their ultrasound systems are significantly worse than GE or Sonosite.

It's because cheapo versions like this are prone to error and in the NHS that can be catastrophic. The kit the NHS buys has to be validated which means it has an error rate which is very low, but this makes it more expensive. Buying stuff like this if you're not a doctor is not a great idea as often people will use it incorrectly or get a false reading and panic ending up at the doctor's or worse A&E for no better reason that it's cheap rubbish. Stupid comments like this and the inevitable consequences are the reason the NHS is on it's knees financially not the NHS's fault. Trust me as a doctor, and one who has worked a lot in intensive care, unless you know what you're doing with this you're better off stearing clear.

If this is true you should report it to both the police and news outlets

How do you know it's accurate? Few of them are, at this price, even for pulse, let alone blood oxygen.

I think it would be too small for the fingers but should be ok on the big toe
