Synopsis: Oxxiom wireless, continuous, fully disposable, single-use pulse oximeter measures arterial oxygen saturation, pulse rate, and perfusion index. Pulse oximetry is a technology that enables the non-invasive monitoring of a patient's arterial oxygen saturation (SpO2), pulse rate (PR), and perfusion index (PI). It gives doctors an indication of the patient's cardiorespiratory status. Oxxiom's proprietary technology offers total mobility in a 33 feet range. It allows users to sleep in any position, exercise, use the restroom, wash their hands, or shower while connected to the device.

Definition

Perfusion Index (PI)

Perfusion Index or PI is the ratio of the pulsatile blood flow to the non-pulsatile static blood flow in a patient's peripheral tissue, such as fingertip, toe, or ear lobe. The perfusion index indicates the pulse strength at the sensor site. The perfusion index is usually monitored with pulse oximeters. The PI's values range from 0.02% for the feeble pulse to 20% for the powerful pulse. The perfusion index varies depending on patients, physiological conditions, and monitoring sites. Because of this variability, each patient should establish their own "normal" perfusion index for a given location and use this for monitoring purposes.

True Wearables' innovative design has combined the electronics and biosensing technology of a clinical-grade pulse oximeter into a tiny, easy-to-use, and completely wireless device that offers over 24 hours of continuous monitoring. Oxxiom measures arterial oxygen saturation (SpO2), pulse rate (PR), and perfusion index (PI).

Oxxiom weighs only 0.12 ounces (3.5 grams) and is completely disposable, eliminating the need for sterilization and significantly reducing the risks of cross-contamination.

Oxxiom's proprietary technology offers total mobility in a 33 feet range and allows users to sleep in any position, exercise, use the restroom, wash their hands, or take a shower while connected to the device.

Oxxiom is monitor agnostic and works with mobile devices, tablets, laptops, and desktops.

Oxxiom does not require external batteries or battery chargers, and its operation is not affected by nail polish or ambient light.

Pulse oximetry is a technology that enables the non-invasive monitoring of a patient's arterial oxygen saturation (SpO2), pulse rate (PR), and perfusion index (PI) and gives doctors an indication of the patient's cardiorespiratory status.

Pulse oximeters are widely utilized during procedures requiring anesthesia or sedation and sleep monitoring studies. They also monitor conditions that affect oxygen blood levels, such as heart attack, heart failure, anemia, COPD, and apnea.
