Highest Rated Medical Pulse Oximeters

When we breath, the oxygen of air dissolves in to blood and gets bound to hemoglobin in blood. This bound form of oxygen can vary in various disease conditions and can be used as a monitoring tool for therapy for these conditions. The measure of saturation of hemoglobin with oxygen i.e. spO2 is indicated in percentage and this can be monitored with pulse oximeters.

Pulse oximeter is a non invasive tool for measuring oxygen saturation. The gold standard for the same still remains arterial blood gas analysis only however it requires sophisticated equipment along with the need to draw blood sample with a syringe.  READ MORE

What is Pulse Oximeter

Pulse oximeter is a non-invasive method of measuring oxygen saturation of hemoglobin  by putting the transducer probe on skin. It measures the oxygen saturation in percentage and the normal value for it is 95 percent and values below 92 % are considered abnormal. The equipment also displays the heart rate normal range for which is 60-100 beats per minute. Pulse less than 60 can be noted in athletes and it is expected to rise in fever and other pathological conditions.

Personal Pulse Oximeter For Home Use

Hand held pulse oximeter is an ultra portable device which can easily be used for oxygen saturation of blood in patients with respiratory and cardiovascular diseases such as COPD or cardiac failure. The device makes it easy to keep a meticulous record and help the physician to modify the treatment based on the response. It also helps to regulate the oxygen requirement and rationalize the therapy. The use of home based pulse oximeter has gone beyond medical indications.  The device is finding it’s use amongst athletes, sports enthusiasts and body builders who use it for planning their work out schedules.

For Patients With COPD

People suffering from asthma and other lung diseases need to keep a track of their SpO2 readings, requiring a quality device displaying accurate stats of their oxygen saturation level and pulse rate.  READ MORE

Normal reading of pulse oximeter

Pulse oximeter measures oxygen carrying capacity of blood by measuring the saturation of hemoglobin with oxygen. It fluctuates with the physical activity and your cardiopulmonary health. It’s not always a constant reading and normally also it can vary from individual to individual. The normal value for SpO2 is more than 95%. However, in all circumstances it should remain more than 92%. To find out your regular SpO2 levels, you need to take your SpO2 readings four times a day approximately 6 hours apart for 5 days. This way you can find out your average SpO2 for future reference.

What is a good reading on a pulse oximeter?

Here are some general guidelines to understanding oximeter readings and SpO2 values. A normal healthy person should be able to achieve normal blood oxygen saturation levels (SpO2) of 94% to 99%. For patients with mild respiratory diseases, the SpO2 should be 90% or above. Hypoxemia is a below-normal level of oxygen in your blood, specifically in the arteries. … Values under 60 mm Hg usually indicate the need for supplemental oxygen. Normal pulse oximeter readings usually range from 95 to 100 percent. Values under 90 percent are considered low.

normal SpO2 level

A normal healthy person should be able to achieve normal blood oxygen saturation levels (SpO2) of 94% to 99%. For patients with mild respiratory diseases, the SpO2 should be 90% or above. Supplementary oxygen should be used if SpO2 level falls below 90%, which is unacceptable for a prolonged period of time.

What is normal range for Pulse?
60 to 100 beats per minute
The normal pulse for healthy adults ranges from 60 to 100 beats per minute. The pulse rate may fluctuate and increase with exercise, illness, injury, and emotions. Females ages 12 and older, in general, tend to have faster heart rates than do males.
