Nonin Medical GO2™ Finger Pulse Oximeter to be Featured on "The Balancing Act" TV Show on Lifetime Television

MINNEAPOLIS, Dec. 12, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Nonin Medical, Inc., the inventor of finger pulse oximetry and a leader in noninvasive medical monitoring, today announced that the GO2™ Personal Finger Pulse Oximeter will be featured on "The Balancing Act" TV Show on Lifetime Television, Tues., Dec. 13, at 7 a.m. EST and PST; 6 a.m. CST.


Yvonne Leonard, Nonin Medical Consumer Products Marketing Manager, is the featured guest. During the segment, Leonard will share with viewers how knowing their oxygen saturation and pulse rate can help them manage chronic respiratory conditions such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).

"A finger pulse oximeter can help those with COPD take control, continue to remain active and live life to the fullest," Leonard said. "The GO2 personal finger pulse oximeter was designed so that individuals can monitor their pulse rate and oxygen saturation rate wherever they go.  It is ideally suited to help individuals work with their health care providers to manage their own chronic respiratory disease or that of their loved one.  Nonin has worked with physicians and respiratory therapists, along with patients, to ensure GO2 products are accurate and easy to use."  A pulse oximeter is a noninvasive medical device used for measuring a patient's oxygen level (SpO2) in the blood and pulse rate.

"Not all finger pulse oximeters are alike," Leonard said. "The GO2 Brand is manufactured in the USA, is certified lead and latex free and provides unsurpassed accuracy for home monitoring in a finger oximeter."  The GO2 fingertip pulse oximeter incorporates Nonin Medical's clinically proven PureSAT® pulse oximetry technology – the same accurate technology used in its full line of oximeters. Patients can feel confident in the readings they get from the GO2 finger pulse oximeter.

Nonin Medical is committed to developing educational information to help patients and care givers manage their conditions and live life to the fullest.  For more information, and to view Lifetime's "The Balancing Act" COPD segment, visit   

The GO2 personal fingertip oximeter is not intended to diagnose or treat a disease.  The GO2 requires a prescription.  The GO2 Achieve is not a medical device and therefore does not require a prescription.
