Masimo demonstrated it’s new iSpO2 Pulse Oximeter at CES, the big Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. It’ may be your standard pulse oximeter, but it comes with a twist: a 30-pin dock connector and measurement app for use with any non-Lightning iOS devices.

Stig Åvall Severinsen, creator of Breatheology and world-record champion of the longest underwater breath hold (22 minutes!) lent a hand (or a finger) to Mike Drummond from Masimo to demonstrate the new device. By holding his breath, Stig can pretty much manually drop his heart rate. The data can be seen prominently on the iPad next to them.

This video may be comically exaggerated, but I’m sure EMT’s everywhere have stories of patients who seriously injure themselves by doing stupid things. We certainly feel a great sense of empathy for the patient’s pain & responsibility to care for the patient in the best way possible. Having said that, we sometimes can’t help feeling frustrated when the injury was easily avoidable.  Feel free to elaborate in the comments on your own exasperation when the patient could’ve avoided injury with a little common sense.

I’ve known about this cute safety video for a little while now. However, I wasn’t sure if I should post it due to it’s dash of morbidity. Then I thought: why don’t you decide? Let me know what you think in the comments.
