Precaution is always better than cure. Hypoxia can cause dangerous issues to the body therefore; pulse oximeter, a digital device can be used to measure and monitor oxygen saturation level in the body. Without oxygen your every body part brain, lever and other major organs can suffer dangerous damages just in few minutes.

Therefore it’s very important to keep track on you oxygen saturation level in your body which can be achieved easily by pulse oximeter. Pulse oximeter is a handy device and can be carried anywhere and can be used anytime to measure and monitor the oxygen saturation level and pulse rate of the human body in easy steps.
Treatment of Hypoxia and Hypoxemia
