As an EMS professional, you have high standards for the equipment you use. Now the industry does, too. The standard known as IEC 60601-2 Edition 4 went into effect on January 1, 2019. All new or updated devices must meet these requirements to be indicated for EMS use.
If you have a handheld pulse oximeter, it met existing requirements when you bought it. But the new standard is more demanding in several ways. Now is a good time to check your devices for compliance—and to take a look at the updated Model 8500 from Nonin.
