An Oximeter is a device which measures the oxygen concentration in an individualís blood.
Pulse Oximeters (also referred to as a Pulse Ox) are the most widely used type of Oximeter. They are able to use the pulse on an individualís fingertip to accurately gauge their blood oxygen levels, which is why they are also referred to as Fingertip Oximeters. This is advantageous not only because is it fast, convenient and non-invasive, but because it can be used to continuously monitor a patientís oxygen levels without having to withdraw their blood.
Different varieties of Pulse Oximeters are useful in a wide range of situations.
- Oximeters can be prescribed for use at home by individuals that require supplemental oxygen.
- Pulse Oximeters are used in hospitals to monitor patientsí oxygen concentration during surgeries.
- Portable Oximeters (or Travel Oximeters) are battery operated and can be used to measure oxygen levels on-the-go, which is useful for people traveling at high altitudes where an additional supply of oxygen is necessary.
