Step 1: Place the SpO2 sensor on the patient’s finger after ensuring that it is clean and free of polish (usually the index finger) with the cable over the back of the hand. The sensor will begin immediately, and after a few moments the SpO2 and heart rate measurements will be displayed. A line is added to the vital signs list with the details.
Step 2: Remove the sensor. The monitor will sound an alarm. Push the Silence button to stop it.
