Covidien Nellcor MAX-FAST OxiMax Forehead SpO2 Sensor with Headband
Part Number: MAXFAST
Above the Ordinary
Offering a significant advancement in patient safety monitoring, the Max-Fast™ forehead sensor is part of the OxiMax™ pulse oximetry platform. The Max-Fast™ forehead sensor provides an effective monitoring option when digit sensors fail to obtain an SpO2 signal,1,2 and it detects changes in SpO2 notably earlier than digit sensors during poor perfusion conditions.
Faster hypoxemia detection
Designed for use on the patient’s forehead, a site closer to the heart, the Max-Fast™ forehead sensor responds to changes in arterial oxygen saturation typically one to two minutes sooner than digit sensors for patients with weak pulses.
Unlike ear sensors, which may cause pressure necrosis and are subject to vasoconstriction, the Max-Fast™ sensor maintains stronger signal integrity.5
Convenient sensor site
Clinicians often have easier access to the forehead than to the hands, especially in the operating room.
The Max-Fast™ sensor is more accurate than all other ear, nose and forehead sensors. It also has our industry-leading LoSat™ expanded accuracy range (60% to 100% SpO2) when used with Nellcor™ OxiMax™ pulse oximetry, for better management of patients with congenital heart disease.
Effective for mechanically ventilated and supine patients.
Efficient and economical
A single Max-Fast™ Forehead Sensor can be used for up to two days with appropriate site inspections and changes
