OxiMax Max-Fast Forehead Sensor



Above the Ordinary
Offering a significant advancement in patient safety monitoring, the Nellcor 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.3,4

Why a Forehead Sensor Makes Sense

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.

Signal strength
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.

Highly accurate
The Nellcor 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.

Clinical versatility
Effective for mechanically ventilated and supine patients.

Efficient and economical
A single Nellcor Max-Fast Forehead Sensor can be used for up to two days with appropriate site inspections and changes.

Max-Fast Performance Compared With Finger Sensors in Reporting SpO2 Changes

This graph shows study results using Max-Fast Forehead Sensors and MAX-A Digit Sensors with the Nellcor OxiMax N-595 Pulse Oximeter. Ten healthy subjects were exposed to cold temperatures to produce low pulse perfusion. The graph highlights the observed time differences between head and finger sensor sites in responding to changes in FIO2. On average, it took one to two minutes longer for the finger site to reveal changes in SpO2 compared with the head sensor site.
