HOW TO USE AN OXIMETER WHY AND
WHY USE AN OXIMETER?
An OXIMETER is used to track saturation of oxygen within blood (SpO2). Simply put, the amount of oxygen available for transport to the tissue of the body.
A shortage of oxygen in the tissues is called hypoxia. Less oxygen to the brain can be extremely detrimental, as a constant healthy supply of oxygen in order to continue functioning is mandatory.
People experiencing hypoxia may feel like they can’t breathe, struggle to catch their breath, or experience a rapid heart rate as the heart beats faster to attempt to supply the brain with blood.
HOW DOES AN OXIMETER WORK?
Pulse oximeter probes have light emitting diodes (LEDs) which shine two types of red light through the tissue. The sensor on the other side of the tissue picks up the light that is transferred through the tissues. The oximeter can determine which of the haemoglobin is in pulsatile blood (arterial) and can then determine the SpO2 of arterial blood in the peripheral circulation.

**The OXIMETER is not for medical use, but uses a simple and commonly used technology to provide accurate results.
Results which could prove vital while monitoring your own health. The OXIMETER should be used to track trends in the wearers blood oxygen levels, in order to help the wearer decide if they need further care and to provide doctors and medical workers with the wearers lung health history during the days of using the OXIMETER.
