Data Monitoring
An optional Masimo MightySat™ Fingertip Pulse Oximeter and a Wrist Blood Pressure Monitor measures and monitors the following data during exercise or rehabilitation:

* Pulse Rate (PR) or the number of heart pulses per minute indicates your overall fitness and exertion levels
* Oxygen Saturation (SpO2) or the oxygen level in the blood indicates changes due to your heart or lung function, oxygen use by your body, and altitude
* Perfusion Index (PI) indicates the strength of blood flow to the finger as blood circulation changes
* Respiration Rate (RRp) or the number of breaths per minute indicates how well your heart and lungs are functioning and how quickly you recover from exercise
* Pleth Variability Index (PVi) or the variation in perfusion index over your breathing cycle which may indicate changes in hydration, breathing effort, perfusion or other factors
* Blood Pressure (BP) indicates your systolic blood pressure and diastolic blood pressure

The KAATSU Master 2.0 measures and archives additional information such as:

* KAATSU Time (KT) or the amount of time spent doing KAATSU per session
* Capillary Refill Time (CRT) or the amount of time in seconds that it takes for your capillaries to refill with blood
* KAATSU Exercise (KE) or the type of exercise, movement or rehabilitation you do with KAATSU
* KAATSU Cycle Function (KCf) or the specific type of KAATSU Cycle (e.g., Cycle 20 or Customized Cycle)

Band Sizes
KAATSU Air Bands are available in 4 sizes: Small, Medium, Large and Extra Large. Measure the circumference of the top of your arm (right by your armpit) and the circumference of the top of your leg (right alongside your groin).
