  • Patent number: 5817010
    Abstract: The present invention provides an oximeter sensor holder that includes first and second lateral members for receiving the sensor, a living hinge connecting proximal ends of the first and second lateral members, and first and second press tabs for moving the first and second lateral members about the living hinge. The first lateral member and the first press tab are in an opposed and spaced-apart relationship to the second lateral member and second press tab, respectively. To open and close the lateral members, at least one of the press tabs pivots about the living hinge away from and toward the other press tab. The holder can include one or more retaining walls to inhibit lateral movement of the sensor when positioned between the first and second lateral members.

  • Patent number: 5676139
    Abstract: This probe makes use of a simplified housing construction that significantly reduces the cost of the manufacture of the probe housing. The housing is implemented using two molded housing halves, which are pivotally connected together and which include an integral spring member. In addition, the housing includes a connector mounted thereon for enabling the probe to be disengaged from the cable and its associated connector that interconnects the probe with the medical monitoring equipment. As a further improvement, a notch is provided on the housing so that the conductors can be positioned to exit the probe in any direction to minimize the possibility of the conductors inadvertently pulling the probe loose from the patient's finger.
