Are you looking for a great gift for your parents? Many people just buy something which they think are good but not those their parents really need. So if you want to buy a gift which can satisfy your parents’ requirement, a wrist finger pulse oximeter is the best choice, especially parents who have Chronic Bronchitis, Emphysema, Obstructive Pulmonary Disease or CHF.

The
finger pulse oximeter is a pain-free, fast and easy way to measure the amount of oxygen in the blood and the heart rate. It uses a probe with a red light and a sensor to measure oxygen levels. The probe wraps around a small part of the finger. As the light travels through the skin to the sensor, it measures the amount of hemoglobin that is carrying oxygen in the blood. So it is perfect for measuring your target heart rate while exercising or can be used to check on old parents with respiratory problems.

There are many types of finger pulse oximeter in the market, such as PC based pulse oximeters, handheld digital pulse oximeters, etc. And a new type- wrist finger pulse oximeter gain most popularity. This wrist finger pulse oximeter can be worn comfortably on the wrist for ease. Also, it can monitor the vital signs of sleep disorder symptoms, such as sleep apnea which afflicts millions of aged parents. The wrist-mounted monitor collects data while the wearer sleeps and the data can be downloaded for analysis via the sleep apnea reporting software supplied with each unit. The wrist finger pulse oximeter is just like a watch, the wearer can check the result in any time at any place. 

Wrist finger pulse oximeters can bring 2 key benefits. First, it allows the doctor to begin diagnosis almost immediately since it can be prescribed directly for an overnight study in the patient's home. Second, it reduces the cost of sleep apnea pre-screening: it is priced at far less than the existing market prices for traditional sleep monitoring equipment and uses long-life batteries for extended periods of constant use, thereby reducing operational costs.

So with those functions of wrist finger pulse oximeter and benefits it brings, there is no doubt that it is the best gift for your parents, especially those daughters and sons who work far away from their parents.
