Zakvrate oximeter

I bought a zakvrate oximeter which doesn't work for me. It is fine on my daughter. It has only given a reading twice today, one 65 with a 33 pulse and one 98/90, both wrong. My fingers are cold and I always have problems with oximeter's bug not to this extent. Warming my hand up in water didn't help. Can anyone recommend an odometer that works better with cold hands?

On doctor visits, I sometimes have the same problem. At one doctors office, they used one that works on the earlobe. Maybe you can ask a medical supplier about that type for you.

Good idea, they work for me. Every time the hospital tries I mention ear lobes. They all reckon they have one but can never find it. I shall see what amazon comes up with

Amazon don't sell them but others do. Wildly expensive though. There must be a more sensitive finger one at a sensible price

Goggle Walgreens. Before I was diagnosed, I'd purchased the one for $37.99 on their website. It always worked fine then but my daughter broke it. If it doesn't work for you, make sure its refundable.
