The Best Pulse Oximeter from HealthCare4All

reliable Oxygen readings with the Heal Force Prince from Healthcare4all
What is the Best Pulse Oximeter?

If you or your child suffer from asthma, you will know how important it is to take reliable and accurate oxygen level readings.

This week i want to introduce you to the Heal Force Prince 100I Fingertip Pulse Oximeter. One of the reasons we love it so much is that it will give you peace of mind without the need to visit your doctor.

We know there are cheaper models available, however for us, the most important thing to note when searching for Oximeters is Accuracy and Reliability! This is why if someone asks me at my pharmacy or at HealthCare4All for my opinion, these are the BEST finger pulse oximeter to buy.

 

What are Pulse Oximeters?

 Pulse oximeters help you monitor the amount of oxygen carried  around your body. Its completely painless and all you have to do is attach it to a fingertip for a few moments to get a reading.

An oxygen level of greater than 95% is generally considered to be a normal oxygen level and a level of 92% or less suggests low blood oxygen.

what is the best Pulse Oximeter
Heal Force 100i pulse oximeter from HealthCare4All

In addition to oxygen level it also tells you your pulse rate. For adults a normal pulse rate is 60-80 beats per minute, however your heart rate would be expected to increase with exercise and and oxygen saturation may slightly decrease (it should still remain at 90% or greater though).

I wanted to find one that is easy to use at home for at-home patient monitoring. For people with COPD, pulse oximetry is useful as a tool for patients to use at home to assist with their management under physician guidance. Monitoring your oxygen saturation level will help you to adjust your oxygen flow at home, during exercise, and during social activities. It can also assist your doctor in deciding if your COPD is getting worse.

For People with COPD, asthma and other lung diseases who want to be active, the quality of the oximeter they use is important. Accurate readings are very important – particularly when patients are active and their oxygen level may be dropping to provide accurate readings especially when you are active.

 

There are 2 Pulse oximeters I recommend. The first one is Heal Force Prince 100F High-Resolution Handheld Pulse Oximeter.  This is an amazing Pulse Oximeter but is on the pricey side at £189.00 (inc VAT), however if you want accuracy and dependability this is the one i would recommend.

The Prince 100F handheld pulse oximeter is a portable device for monitoring SpO2, pulse rate and pulse strength. It is robust, fast and reliable, so the device is suitable for use both at home and in a hospital environment.

  • The Heal Force Prince 100I Fingertip Pulse Oximeter + Probe Port is in a class of its own. I was initially taken aback by the above average cost of this device. I have used several other much cheaper brands over the last several years with mostly disappointing results (inconsistent results, early breakdowns etc.). However having used this device most days for a few months I can testify to its reliability, excellent build quality and consistently accurate results. On every occasion it has held up..

 

  • Excellent product, we bought this to monitor our two year olds oxygen levels as he suffers with asthma and we were having to continually rush him to the doctors to be checked. At first we tried a cheaper monitor which was not accurate and hard to obtain a reading. We ordered this one and it has given an accurate reading every time (without either of the children’s probes being needed). Well worth the money. Would highly recommend. Fantastic product which will give us peace of mind.

Here are HealthCare4All’s Top 4 Peak Flow Meters

 

what is the best peak flow meter
HealthCare4All’s Top 4 Peak Flow Meters

 

As I lay in bed aching from head to toe with ‘The Flu‘ a few weeks ago, I thought with so many respiratory problems around at this time of year why not tell you about my favourite Peak Flow meters. HealthCare4all.co.uk has a great selection to choose from.

So what is Peak Flow?

Very simply it is a lung function test to measure how fast you can exhale. You take a full breath in, then blow out as fast as you can into a small, hand-held plastic tube called a peak flow meter. The measurement taken is called your peak flow.

When is it used?

A GP or asthma nurse might use a peak flow test to help see how open your airways are – they often use this test when you first tell them you’re experiencing symptoms that might be asthma. Your GP or asthma nurse should do a peak flow test at every annual asthma review as part of their routine checks.

This test is also useful for monitoring your asthma using a peak flow diary alongside a symptom diary and your asthma action plan. Take a look at www.asthma.org.uk for some more information.

Peak flow readings will vary depending on your age, your height and whether you’re a man or a woman. This test shows how your individual lung function changes.

Although your peak flow reading may be different in the morning or at night, it’s the pattern your scores make that’s important, rather than one score on its own. Most people have a best peak flow reading so you’ll be able to see when your reading goes up and down.

Keeping track of your peak flow whilst monitoring your symptoms can help you spot when your asthma is getting worse and when you need to use your reliever inhaler (usually blue) or get medical help.

HealthCare4All recommends the BEST portable nebuliser

Image may contain: 1 person, standing and outdoor

This week I want to talk to you about Nebulisers. What they are, how they are used and which one HealthCare4All recommends!

First of all, What is a Nebuliser?

A nebuliser is a medical device that transforms medication from liquid to a mist so it can be inhaled into the lungs more easily. Being inhaled through a mouthpiece, the dissolved drugs are able to reach affected areas directly and quickly. Nebuliser machines are an effective way of delivering certain types of medication to infants and children suffering from asthma, or anybody else who finds it difficult to use an inhaler.

As Web MD informs using nebulisers to deliver certain medication is often referred to as “breathing treatment.” Nebuliser machines are available in both table top models, typically designed for home use, and portable versions. Whilst table top models have to be plugged into the electricity mains, portable nebulisers machines are usually smaller and are run on batteries.

What are nebulisers used for?

Nebulisers are used for the treatment, both domiciliary and emergency, of many respiratory conditions.

Cystic Fibrosis (CF)

People who suffer from Cystic Fibrosis are one of the primary users of nebuliser machines. Those with CF often rely on saline nebulisers, as the machine can allow the patient to inhale saline solutions more easily. The saline helps to thin mucus, preventing bacteria to grow in a warm environment. This helps antibiotics be delivered more effectively

Chronic Pulmonary Disease (COPD)

As the BBC informs, nebuliser machines are also used by patients suffering from Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, a type of obstructive lung condition, which is characterised by an individual having poor air flow in the long term.

Emphysema

Emphysema affects millions of people around the world. Smoking is one of the leading causes of this lung condition. A nebuliser machines is often used to give emphysema patients medication through steam formation to help them cope with the disease and feel better. As My Emphysema Symptoms writes, nebuliser machines can be a faster and less time-consuming way for emphysema patients to get treated without having any side effects.

Asthma

If an asthma patient has used a nebuliser during a hospital visit, they may be recommended one at home, if their GP or consultant believes they may benefit from one. These machines can be an effective way to provide respiratory assistance to people who find it difficult to use an inhaler, such as young children.

There are many different types of nebulisers to buy. Healthcare4all has a range of nebuliser machines available to buy, including asthma nebulisers, emphysema nebulisers, turboneb nebulisers, allergy nebulisers, COPD nebulisers, portable nebulisers, world traveller nebulisers, microair nebulisers, microneb nebulisers, amongst others.

There is only ONE nebuliser which i normally recommend. The MicroBase Pocket AirNeb Mini Portable Nebuliser, it is £74.99 from HealthCare4All and the reviews I have been getting are outstanding!

“Very happy with the product, I use it for my one month old baby, not noisy at all which helps a lot. Very easy to clean which makes my life easier, we tried the omron but it was difficult to use with baby as it had to be plugged in. Strongly recommend”

“I must admit I was a little bit unsure when I ordered it but I’m over the moon with every thing this little machine
Does its far better than the larger machine I use at home its small compact so easy to use and clean the bonus of it all it’s easy to carry as it’s not much bigger than your hand it comes with its own carry case which keeps every thing together a lady could put it in a hand bag its that small I would recommend this nebuliser to any one without any worry”

“Value for money I’m over the moon with it it’s small and light but as good it not better than the big machine I would have no problem recommending it to any one it easy to load easy to use and so easy to clean comes in a tidy well made zip up bag”

“Excellent service and a great value for money product. Silent, compact, and for the size very effective. Don’t leave home without one ! What a great item. Does exactly what it says on the tin ! Used it on the day of arrival it was so quiet I wasn’t sure it was working !”

Invaluable advice from HealthCare4All for Asthma treatment

Invaluable advice from HealthCare4All for Asthma treatment
Invaluable advice from HealthCare4All for Asthma treatment

Getting diagnosed with asthma can be daunting. Though with the right medication and care, asthma patients can stay fit, healthy and lead a normal life. As well as taking your regular asthma medication, there are certain lifestyle habits you can adopt and things to avoid that can help reduce asthma symptoms and the chances of an attack occurring.

1. Don’t smoke

As Asthma.org warns, smoking and breathing in other people’s smoke aggravates asthma and makes it worse in the long-term as it causes damage to the lungs that is permanent. In fact such is the negative impact smoking has on asthma sufferers that 82 percent of people with the respiratory condition inform Asthma.org that tobacco smoke affects their asthma.

Breathing in smoke, either first or second-hand, can also trigger an asthma attack. As Dr Mike Thomas from Asthma UK told NHS.uk:

“Smoke acts as an irritant and can trigger asthma attacks. It makes inhaled medicine less effective. As a result, you’re likely to need to take bigger doses of inhaled steroid medication.”

2. Avoid being exposed to asthma triggers

Numerous things can trigger asthma and one person’s triggers might be considerably different to another’s. Some of the most common asthma triggers include animal hair, pollen, airborne irritants, such as cigarette smoke, dust mites, pollution in the atmosphere and chemical fumes.

An asthma sufferer usually knows what environments can trigger their asthma and can therefore do their best to avoid being exposed to such “asthma triggers.”

HealthCare4All have a whole range of products to aid allergy issues such as Humidifiers,  Qu-Chi Acupressure Bands, or Bionette Electronic Allergy Hayfever Relief Device.

Take a look at Healthcare4All.co.uk for many more options!

3. Wrap up in cold weather

Cold weather can have a serious impact on asthma, so much so that according to Asthma UK, three quarters of people who have the condition say that cold air can trigger their symptoms. Cher Piddock, an Asthma UK nurse, warns of the dangers cold weather can have on people with asthma:

“Hospital admissions for asthma traditionally peak during periods of particularly cold weather. This can be due to breathing cold air into the lungs, which can in turn trigger asthma, as well as picking up colds and flu.”

It is therefore important that if you do have to go out in very cold weather, to wrap up warm and cover up your nose and mouth with a scarf. You should also have an asthma inhaler close by.

4. Keep pets out of bedrooms

As animal fur is a key asthma trigger it is wise to keep pets out of bedrooms. As well as keeping pets out of bedrooms, try and keep them off the furniture so if you are prone to asthma attacks you are not in direct contact with the pet hair.

5. Reduce stress

As Health Communities inform, worry and intense emotions can intensify asthma symptoms. Consequently it is important for people with asthma to try and relieve feelings of stress and worry and make time for doing things that they enjoy and helps them relax.

6. Use precautionary respiratory aids

Respiratory aids can be an effective way to help asthma sufferers breathe more easily. For example, the Salitair Inhaler Therapy Asthma and Allergy, a clinically tested pipe that is filled with salt crystals that provide a salty microclimate, can effectively calm and cleanse the cells of the respiratory system to aid easier breathing.

If you do suffer from this condition in which 5.4 million people in Britain alone are currently receiving treatment for, it is important that you keep asthma inhalers and other medication for the respiratory condition close by.

Monitoring your oxygen saturation level will help you to adjust your oxygen flow at home, during exercise, and during social activities. It can also assist your doctor in deciding if your COPD is getting worse.

For People with COPD, asthma and other lung diseases who want to be active, the quality of the oximeter they use is important. Accurate readings are very important – particularly when patients are active and their oxygen level may be dropping to provide accurate readings especially when you are active.

 

Why we love the Heal Force Prince

The reason we love the Heal force prince is because not only does it work straight out of the box, it can be used for both adults and children! There are cheaper models on the market, however, with Oximeters it is imperative the readings are accurate otherwise the product is pointless.  The Heal Force Princes readings are Very accurate and reliable and will give you peace of mind!

In order to use it for children or infants you simply attach a probe and then it will work for all ages!

It comes with preset alarm limits (these cannot be adjusted by user), and also When the external paediatric or infant sensors are connected, the finger clip sensor will be deactivated and the alarm limits change automatically! Please see below for the limits*

HealthCare4All are not the only ones that love it. Its fans include GP Surgeries and health clinics too as its so versitile, and its readings are accurate and reliable. All you need to do to use it is put your finger in it! It automatically switches on.

Our verified customer reviews have been amazing, here are just a couple of examples…

 

  • The Heal Force Prince 100I Fingertip Pulse Oximeter + Probe Port is in a class of its own. I was initially taken aback by the above average cost of this device. I have used several other much cheaper brands over the last several years with mostly disappointing results (inconsistent results, early breakdowns etc.). However having used this device most days for a few months I can testify to its reliability, excellent build quality and consistently accurate results. On every occasion it has held up..

 

  • Excellent product, we bought this to monitor our two year olds oxygen levels as he suffers with asthma and we were having to continually rush him to the doctors to be checked. At first we tried a cheaper monitor which was not accurate and hard to obtain a reading. We ordered this one and it has given an accurate reading every time (without either of the children’s probes being needed). Well worth the money. Would highly recommend. Fantastic product which will give us peace of mind.

 

 

 

To sum up…

What are Pulse Oximeters?

 Pulse oximeters help you monitor the amount of oxygen carried  around your body. Its completely painless and all you have to do is attach it to a fingertip for a few moments to get a reading.

An oxygen level of greater than 95% is generally considered to be a normal oxygen level and a level of 92% or less suggests low blood oxygen.

In addition to oxygen level it also tells you your pulse rate. For adults a normal pulse rate is 60-80 beats per minute, however your heart rate would be expected to increase with exercise and and oxygen saturation may slightly decrease (it should still remain at 90% or greater though).

I wanted to find one that is easy to use at home for at-home patient monitoring. For people with COPD, pulse oximetry is useful as a tool for patients to use at home to assist with their management under physician guidance. Monitoring your oxygen saturation level will help you to adjust your oxygen flow at home, during exercise, and during social activities.

Accurate readings are very important – particularly when patients are active and their oxygen level may be dropping to provide accurate readings especially when you are active.

PocketNeb Portable Travel Nebuliser (Battery operated) – UK exclusive to Healthcare4all

We are delighted to announce the launch of the PocketNeb Handheld portable nebuliser, which is a UK exclusive to Healthcare4all.

Battery-operated, great for days out and travelling
New handheld, silent, robust and sturdy nebuliser - great value too

The PocketNeb has now arrived in stock and is ready to ship – it’s a lightweight ultrasonic model that is silent in use, robust, reliable and cheap to maintain. Costing only £59.95 without VAT (VAT exemption available to UK residents with chronic conditions such as asthma), there is also an optional AC mains adaptor for only £9.95 exc VAT.

An adult mouthpiece is included along with a child mask, and we also stock the adult mask for those customers who prefer a mask when nebulising. We generally recommend use of the mouthpiece where possible as it is a more efficient method of absorbing medication but we know some customers prefer masks so that option is available.

It’s powered by 2 x AA batteries (included) which should enable around 1.5 – 2.5 hours of use from one set. What’s more, unlike some competitor nebulisers, the replacement components don’t cost as much as new nebuliser!
For other handheld nebulisers, such as the Omron MicroAir U22, the mesh cap replacments can cost around £40 and that doesn’t include a new medicine container. The PocketNeb part is only £19.99 for both items.

The mesh cap and medicine container are in one easy-to-change piece. Simply press the release button and the unit pulls away. Pop-in a new one and after spending only £19.99 your nebuliser is as good as new again. There’s no filters to change so that’s it!

If you are travelling over the Christmas holidays, or simply need a nebuliser to keep in your pocket when out and about, it’s hard to beat the PocketNeb.

If you need any help or advice regarding nebulisers, please call us and speak to the experts: 0113 350 5432

Nebulizer Types

As home and/or hospital medical equipment, nebulizers are often used in treating asthma, cystic fibrosis, COPD and other respiratory disorders and diseases.

They work via the process of converting liquid into fine mist, somewhat like how an aerosol can would. As modes of medicine introduction to asthmatics, nebulizers can effectively inject bronchodilator medicines into the body, achieved though the use of a face-mask-type breathing apparatus.

Their use, doesn’t require any breathing-in or breathing out coordination, only requiring patients to breath in and out normally, since drugs or medicines introduced via the nebulizer would “naturally” be breathed in.
