What is the Pulse Oximeter?

Pulse Oximeter

Pulse Oximeter is the latest invention of science and technology, which liberates the result a person’s or patient’s oxygen saturation level in the blood stream. Not only this, the machine also detects the heart rate of the person too. It is one of the rapid detecting machines that works on non-invasive methods for the calculation and detection of the data, by just clipping it on your finger tip.

 

Who Can Use It?

The machine is ideal for the people suffering from asthma, congestive heart problems, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and other conditions. The machine is also useful for the diagnosis of few sleeping disorders too like the apnea and hyperpnoea. However, the Pulse Oximeter works fine on the baby’s body too, as they also faces problems related to the breathing.

 

How Does The Pulse Oximeter Works?

The machine is equipped with a pair of small light emitting electrodes or LEDs, facing a photodiode, through the patient’s body. The former LED light in the machine produces red light, whereas the latter one liberates the infrared light; which passes through the body part of the patient without any harmful effects. The oxygenated hemoglobin in the blood stream absorbs most of the infrared light thus allowing the red to penetrate in the body. Whereas the deoxygenated hemoglobin molecules, absorbs the red light and allow the passage of the infrared light through the body.

This cycle is repeated thirty times per second, which is all detected and recorded by the photodiode. The amount of light transmitted is then measured and gives signals to the detectors, who is responsible for the production of the data. This data is then utilized for the calculation of the ratio of red light measurement of the infrared light measurement, which is then calculated by the processor to provide the saturated oxygen levels in the body along with the heart rates of the person.

 

Why to Purchase This Electronic Device?

The digital Pulse Oximeter is best for the families, who have patients in their homes. The machine is compact, very easy to use, as it makes use of non-invasive methods, and fits in the budget.
