Your pulse oximeter will be “out of the box” ready for use. All you need to do is install the two AAA batteries into the battery compartment.
Taking a reading
Open the pulse oximeter
Insert your index finger into the device
Press the power button to begin taking the measurement
Wait momentarily for results to show.
You can communicate your reading to your coach by logging it in your Pulse Ox tracker in the app home screen.
You will work with your coach on a plan that continuously monitors and manages your SpO2 and pulse rate.
If your reading is low…
After you log your Pulse Ox reading, the Vida app will alert you if your oxygen level is critically low. Please follow the instructions detailed in the alert.
If you are in need of immediate medical attention, please go to your nearest emergency room or call 911.
My reading does not seem to be normal or is unstable:
- It’s possible your finger is not inserted into the device correctly. Retry by inserting your finger and refrain from excessive movement while taking the reading.
My oximeter is not turning on:
- Likely the oximeter is out of battery or has low battery. You may see a low battery symbol when this occurs. Replace the batteries and try again. If the batteries are fairly new, confirm they are installed correctly.
Error 7 is displayed on the screen:
- This is indicating damage to the LED or electronic components. Please contact the customer support team for further assistance.
