MINNEAPOLIS, May 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Nonin Medical, Inc., a leading innovator of noninvasive physiological monitoring solutions, and the inventor of the Onyx(R) fingertip pulse oximeter, announced today the release of its personal patient monitoring device, the GO2(TM) fingertip pulse oximeter. The all-new GO2 provides patients a proven, cost-effective, at-home device to confidently and safely monitor their oxygen saturation to complement their clinician-advised oxygen therapy program.
The GO2(TM) personal fingertip pulse oximeter enables oxygen users to adjust their oxygen to meet their varying daily activity levels, get instant feedback on the effectiveness of their breathing techniques, and improve communication with their clinician. And with growing emphasis on the importance of staying active and fit, the highly durable GO2 is the perfect monitoring complement to any clinician-advised exercise program -- promoting compliance through simple operation and instant, precise feedback.
Accurate and dependable measurements of oxygen saturation and pulse rate values are important factors for successful communication between patient and clinician during the management of long-term oxygen therapy (LTOT) care. The GO2(TM) will benefit clinicians by enabling them to partner with their patients and trust that the patient-reported oxygen and pulse rate readings are reliable -- every time.
The GO2(TM) fingertip pulse oximeter incorporates Nonin Medical's clinically proven PureSAT(R) pulse oximetry technology - the same accurate technology used in its full line of oximeters. Patients can feel confident that the readings they take at home are the same as they would be if taken at their clinician's office. "It's very important for me to have an accurate reading like I get at my doctor's office," said Pat Reichart, COPD patient and realtor from Minneapolis, MN. "I just feel safe with the GO2(TM)."
Consumers will be able to purchase the GO2(TM) fingertip pulse oximeter from Nonin (www.go2nonin.com) or through its authorized global distribution channels.
