What Exactly Is SpO2 and How Is It Measured by a Pulse Oximeter
SpO2 is a very imperative sign if we talk about the health of an individual. The percentage of oxygen in the hemoglobin of an individual is called SpO2.
Many health conditions require the constant and accurate monitoring of SpO2 in order to make sure that you are operating at optimal health or to prevent any other health conditions. That is why having a spo2 simulator is very important.
A pulse oximeter device is used to measure the pulse rate and SpO2of an individual. By positioning your finger in the portable device an infrared light passes through your finger.
But you will never feel the light and any discomfort because the light is an infrared light and does not in any way affect you physically. As the light passes through your finger it also passes through the finger's tissue and then through the blood.
Hemoglobin sucks up light at several frequencies. When the finger bounces back to the oximeter device the infrared light goes via computer with a number which represents the oxygen levels of the body.
So individuals living with various health conditions that are necessary to measure their oxygen levels can now use the device in the comfort of their home without ever having to worry about not monitoring their health on a continuous basis.
