The Animal Oximeter Pod is suitable for the measurement of oxygen saturation in the range 70 to 100 %, or to display a pulsatile waveform. The unit provides a non-invasive measurement of the oxygen saturation of arterial haemoglobin (SpO₂) using a suitable Animal-Clip or Tail-Wrap transducer. The Oximeter Pod produces an oxygen saturation reading between 70 and 100% without the need to perform any other scaling, or can display a photo plethysmograph pulse signal.




System Compatibility:



The Animal Oximeter Pod connects to any PowerLab hardware units with Pod ports (8-pin DIN inputs). PowerLab and MacLab (except 4s, 8s and 16s) units without Pod ports require the ML305 Pod Expander.



The Animal Oximeter Pod is Supported by the Following Versions of LabChart and Scope Software:



WINDOWS



• LabChart v3.4.8 or later



• Scope v3.6.3 or later



MACINTOSH



• LabChart v3.6.3 or later



• Scope v3.6.3 or later



Note: Earlier software versions do not support Pods.



Transducer Compatibility:



The Animal Oximeter Pod is designed to operate with the MLT323 Animal-Clip or MLT324 Tail-Wrap transducers, or other transducers manufactured by Nonin. It should not be used with non-Nonin SpO₂ transducers as damage or inaccurate readings may result.



Theory of Operation:



The Animal Oximeter Pod is designed to measure the arterial hemoglobin saturation (SpO₂) in pulsatile tissue by applying short pulses of light from light emitting diodes in the transducer. The light is emitted through the tissue at two different wavelengths and the SpO₂ is calculated using the levels of transmitted and the received light. The Animal Oximeter Pod displays an analog output voltage that is proportional to the oxygen saturation, or the pulse.



Stacking and Unstacking Pods:



Pods stack by clicking into place on top of each other. To separate stacked Pods, push the top Pod towards the back and then pull them apart from the back.
