The columns in the foreground show how much of the time the measured values fell into this range on
the scale. For example, in the histogram above, the SpO
of the last 12 hours. The display of the percentage value above each column, can be switched on or off
by selecting the histogram. The arrow mark over a column shows that the currently measured value is
also in this range. The columns are displayed in the same color as the measurement data.
The columns in the background show the cumulative percentage value: each of the foreground

The pop-up keys in the window can be used to change the measurement, the time period and the
