some may not see this as a deal but when my child was ill the doctor said she was fine it was only when they put one of these on her fingers that they found out her oxygen was low and rushed her to hospital were she ended up in intensive care with pneumonia so this is a life saver to me

lol thanks

As a rough guide they're OK but be aware these can be notoriously inaccurate and not up to clinical standards.
If you really have to have one spend a bit more and get one with better reliability & accuracy

​I would agree, for an extra £10 you can get one with hundreds of reviews an 5 star.

Umm who was your doctor? Be a bit worried if someone who needed ITU looked OK to them

Still a good deal. But would agree with paying a few more quid for a better one. Don't want to scrimp on my health. Heat added. Thanks OP!

Bl__dy good deal.

CURB score and ​an xray showing consolidation diagnoses pneumonia, not oxygen levels. OPs a big fat liar bigging up this product

This is just a guess, but I bet the doctor wasn't using a TooGood plastic crap Oximeter made in some one's shed in China. He was almost certainly using a high quality medical grade pulse oximeter. I wouldn't trust this to measure the oxygen in anyone's blood accurately, in fact I've voted cold because this is a possibly dangerous product which could lead to false assurance or even scaremongering. This is a cheap party trick gadget which should ideally just be tossed in the bin.

Not cool.

Also, it's quite reasonable to expect low oxygen levels picked up by a device like this to prompt for x-ray/further investigation.

Well it's a toss up between something that doesn't work at all and gives false readings or a proper device which actually works, guess which category this falls in to. I consider it completely useless and without merit and an example of the utter crap that comes out of China. I don't dislike China they have a booming economy and some excellent emerging and existing products, this is just another example of Chinese crap though utterly useless and without merit.

I feel I have been a bit rude to the OP, she means well I'm sure I just feel this isn't a product you should use to make any health decisions and is just a bit of fun. Also the OP is misleading people not intentionally however I really don't believe a doctor used a cheap device like this and actually used an approved device. Anecdotal evidence counts for nothing.

It's Winnie's first deal on here!

Constructive advice and experienced opinions on a product are welcome but insulting the op and calling them a liar is uncalled for.

Don't be put off Winnie, please post anything else you find that may be of interest.

im not a liar the finger clip showed oxygen levels were right down so they called an ambulance at hospital they checked her, and a couple of hours later she was in intensive care on all different antibiotics as her lungs were full .

BIG CONGRATULATIONS

1ST deal posted although you joined in 2009 so next deal will be in 2023? Ha ha.

Yeah these are just cheap tat, made in sweatshops for pennies. Doubt they're tested to any medical quality standards.

it was the walkin centre she put 1 of them stethoscopes on her and said her chest was clear but she couldnt breath so they put the finger thing on and thats when they new she wasnt well .they said its cause her longs were full as they normally would ear a crackling noise

​My son was seen by 6 doctors over a week in maternity while I begged them to see something was wrong with my son, 2 days after discharge I took him the A&E and insisted I wouldn't move when the doctor told me he would call SS because I wouldn't accept my son was well so I told them to call. They did and when they sent in the consultant, who I found out later was checking incase I caused injury, he put on a pulse oximeter found my son's saturations were so low and then checked his legs and found he had oedema and rushed him for x-ray. He has heart defects, by the time they did that xray he was so far in heart failure they didn't know if he could survive the night (he did, he's 11 now though expecting another heart op imminently). We've faced similar through 2 bouts of pneumonia.
Doctors are not magic, medicine is an art not a science and it is only equipment that can give them a clue as often kids show little or know symptoms.

winnie there are better ones than this out there, we had this one and measured it again to hospital ones and it read 4% higher than his real saturations. The ones they use at hospitals and doctors are just the £20 ones you get on amazon but much more reliable read.

​You just stick them on thumb or toe to make them suitable for toddler and up

My phone does this, note 4
I think at the very least all the Samsung ones do.
Check your phone doesn't before buying one

Also happened to me. 3 days before Christmas 2010, a doctor called as I literally could not walk without passing out. Listened to my lungs and said "no infection" just flu. 2 days later and worsening, a different GP called and immediately called an emergency ambulance. Double pneumonia and 6 days in ITU. So it does happen much more than you would like to think.

My point was if your doctor needed a SATs reading to decide between being fine and ITU, something wrong with the medic. Seems the poster went to a walk in and was probably seen by a nurse.

thanks op

Technically, CURB65 is not a diagnostic tool, rather a grading of severity.:p

​That's why I added consolidation / visible on xray

I spent a month in hospital with endocarditis and was connected up to all-sorts of machines over the period. A lot of the doctors would carry very similar devices. I suspect they paid a bit more than this though. So my mrs bought one from Amazon and I used to use it whenever they used a portable floor standing pulse oximeter. The results were always close if not exact.
Mine cost £15. Sorry I don't remember the actual model. Just saying it is possible for these be accurate. Choose carefully.
