First Use

The Beurer® Pulse Oximeter (PO 60) comes with everything needed to record pulse oximetry data. 

When using the device for the first time, insert the included batteries first.

  1. Slide the battery compartment cover (on the backside of the device) open
  2. Insert the two included batteries into the pulse oximeter (following the correct polarity as shown)
  3. Close the battery compartment cover again

Optionally, we also recommend attaching the lanyard included in your device for eatery transport and safe use.e

  1. Insert the narrow end of the lanyard through the holder as shown
  2. Draw the other end of the lanyard through the loop at the narrow end and tighten

Measuring Pulse Oximetry Data

  1. Open the device by pinching together the end of the device where the lanyard holder is placed
  2. Place your left index finger into the Finger Opening
  3. Press the function button to start the device
  4. Wait for measurement to appear on the device’s built-in display

Note: once the finger is removed, the device will switch to Sync Mode (sync displayed on the display) in which the device tries to sync with the official Beurer app to transfer the acquired data. Bluetooth functionality is currently not support in OpenSignals.

Logging the results in OpenSignals Desktop

Results recorded by this device can be manually logged into your OpenSignals recordings during real-time acquisition and in post-processing using the Manual Measurements tool.
