The Heart Failure Association of America is currently hosting Heart Failure Awareness Week. High blood pressure is a risk factor in heart failure, and as a dentist it is important to ensure that all your pulse oximeter accessories are up to date for your patientsâ€™ safety. Please replace the following expired equipment to ensure it will be ready
whenever you need it.
These have an average lifespan of 18-24 months. Worn-out finger sensors can lead to inaccurate Sp02 readings.
Blood pressure cuffs have an average lifespan of 12-18 months. The Velcro on the cuff can begin to buckle, causing inaccurate blood pressure readings.
DOCS Education recommends that doctors keep double sets of finger sensors and blood pressure cuffs as a safety precaution.
