The iHealth AIR is a Wireless Fingertip Pulse Oximeter that is accurate and easy to use

iHealth AIR Wireless - All The Features Of a Good Pulse Oximeter

Combining ease of use and reliable results with the luxury of app integration, the iHealth PO3M accurately measures your pulse and blood oxygen levels (SPo2) in seconds - and stores your readings in the iHealth MyVitals app for future reference.

Reliable And Accurate Pulse Oximeter Readings

The PO3M is a TGA approved pulse oximeter. Devices that pass the requirements of the Therapeutic Goods Administration are deemed safe and effective to use. It is also a clinically tested pulse oximeter - ensuring accuracy, reliability and confidence with each reading! Medical clinics, doctors and hospitals throughout Australia trust the iHealth AIR. (For the PO3M’s ARTG number, see the blog “Can Cheap Pulse Oximeters Be Trusted?”)

Easy to Use

With the press of one button, the iHealth AIR takes your pulse and SPo2 in seconds. It can be used as a standalone device (without a smartphone) or can sync readings directly to the iHealth MyVitals app. The device comes with a lanyard, so can be worn during activities and quickly clipped to your finger for a reading at any time. After 8 seconds of inactivity, the device will automatically turn off, saving battery.

A Lightweight and Wireless Pulse Oximeter

This device is lightweight and can be worn on the included lanyard for quick access. It is wireless, requiring no cables to take a reading - just clip it on and go! If you have a smartphone, the iHealth AIR allows you to easily connect, synchronise and save data on the iHealth MyVitals app via Bluetooth. The internal memory of the PO3M can store 100 readings before being overwritten, so synchronisation with the app doesn’t have to take place each time a measurement is taken. It can also be used as a stand alone device, without connection to a smartphone and app!

Clear Display

Check your pulse and SPo2 levels easily with the vivid LED display. When used in conjunction with the iHealth MyVitals app, see these readings, plus your perfusion index on the screen of your phone in real time!

A Rechargeable Pulse Oximeter

The iHealth AIR PO3M is a fully rechargeable pulse oximeter with a built-in Li-ion 3.7V 390 mAh battery. Simply charge the device with the micro USB cable included. Full charge is reached when the LED battery indicator stops flashing.

Easy to Clean

With a simple and sleek design, cleaning the device is easy. The iHealth AIR’s body is backlit with an LED display - there are no screen ridges to hold dirt! Simply wipe the entire probe with a damp cloth (cleaning alcohol can be used.)

Smartphone Compatible With App Integration

Connect the iHealth AIR pulse oximeter to your Apple or Android smartphone and sync it with the free iHealth MyVitals app to store and view your data in one place. See graphs, check trends over time and share your results to keep your doctor or caregiver up to date. When measurements are taken offline, they can be easily synchronised once connected with the app (the PO3M can store up to 100 readings before overwriting.) Available now on the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store.

Get a Pulse Oximeter Reading - How To Use The iHealth AIR PO3M

Measuring your pulse and SPo2 is easier than ever with the iHealth AIR. To take a reading:

  2. Press the “Start” button once to turn the device on.
  3. Keep still for the reading.
  4. After a few seconds your reading will appear on the oximeter (and the iHealth MyVitals app, if using.)

Tips And Tricks For An Accurate Pulse Oximeter Reading With The iHealth AIR

For an accurate oximeter reading, follow these simple tips:

  • Sit down and/or limit movement while taking a reading. This includes finger movement! The device may mistake excessive movement for good pulse strength and give an inaccurate pulse measurement.
  • Remove nail polish before using your pulse oximeter. Nail polish and artificial nails  can affect how the oximeter works. To further assist in ensuring accuracy, the iHealth AIR PO3M manual advises users to have their fingernail facing down, or in the opposite direction of the display when using the oximeter.
  • Minimise any external bright light from shining on the device and test area while the reading is being taken. As the oximeter uses its own light to take measurements, any extreme external light interference can prevent an accurate pulse oximeter reading.
  • Warm up your hand before using the device. Poor circulation can affect the reading.
  • Fit the pulse oximeter correctly. Avoid having the probe overstretched.
  • Know your own levels. Each person can have different “normal” pulse and SpO2 levels. Skin colour can affect pulse oximeter readings, but knowing your personal levels allows you to easily identify changes.

What Is a Normal Blood Oxygen Level?

A person’s SpO2 reading is an indicator of how well their body distributes oxygen.

  • A normal SpO2 reading is typically between 95% and 100%
  • A low SpO2 reading is less than 95%

Low SpO2 levels can be a sign of hypoxia - indicating insufficient amounts of oxygen are reaching the cells, tissues and organs. Covid-19 can be one cause for hypoxia (or silent hypoxia - without symptoms.) However, in other respiratory diseases such as COPD, these ranges may not apply. For example, it isn’t uncommon for people with severe COPD to maintain their SpO2 levels between 88 to 92 percent. Always consult your doctor as to what levels are normal for you. For more information on SPo2 levels and what to look out for, read the Pulse Oximetry FAQ here!

Easily see if you have a normal pulse rate or SpO2 level by using the iHealth AIR clinically tested pulse oximeter

What is a Normal Pulse Rate?

Your pulse rate is the number of times your heart beats per minute (BPM). Your pulse rate is not the same as your blood pressure. It is always best to check your pulse when you are resting, or have been resting for at least 5 minutes.

  • A normal resting pulse rate is typically between 60 and 100 BPM
  • A low resting pulse rate (Bradycardia) is typically less than 60 BPM
  • A high resting pulse rate (Tachycardia) is typically more than 100 BPM

In most cases, a pulse rate on the lower end of the scale indicates a fit and healthy heart. Some athletes may have a low pulse rate due to their fitness. However, pulse rates outside the normal levels can indicate other problems. Always consult your doctor as to what levels are normal for you.

Glucose Test Strips

FitTrack initially sent me iHealth Blood Glucose Test Strips that were past their used by date. After notifying them, to their credit, they replaced them with ones that were well within the used by date (apparently they had received an entire shipment that was past the used by date). Greatly appreciated FitTrack for the follow up.
