Every individual aim to have a peace of mind knowing there is device we can carry along in monitoring pulse rate.
Pulse oximetry is universally used for monitoring patients in the critical care setting.It is, a straightforward method for estimating arterial oxygen saturation, can detect hypoxemia early; Using spectrophotometric methodology, pulse oximetry measures oxygen saturation by illuminating the skin and measuring changes in light absorption of oxygenated (oxyhemoglobin) and deoxygenated blood (reduced hemoglobin).It’s a device intended for the non-invasive measurement of arterial blood oxygen saturation (SpO2) and pulse rate.
Patients should monitor oxygen saturation with pulse oximeters while exercising so they can adjust the pace as the oxygen saturation decreases.Oximeters are inexpensive and can report an accurate reading within seconds. Speed is important especially in an emergency situation.For many patients, doctors often recommend exercise to improve their physical stamina and overall fitness. However exercise can result in increasing shortness of breath. It can also help athletes in high altitude training. The reduction in oxygen level can increase red blood cells in athletes and help to increase his/her endurance. This is a must have device for every individual!
