1) There is no substitute for a dedicated heart rate monitor with chest strap for accurate, continuous heart rate measurement. If you require first aid, have a medical emergency, heart attack, or cardiac event (when CPR required), please consult your doctor or primary care physician as soon as possible.
2) Resting pulse oximeter is not intended for heart disease or condition diagnosis (afib, heart murmur).
3) Heart beat detection does not detect blood pressure. If you want to measure blood pressure, please use a hemopiezometer.
4) Resting heart beat is not intended for baby heart rate. If you intend to measure a baby's heart rate, please use a device especially made for baby heart beat.
