Pulse Oximeters (also called Pulse Ox'es) are a popular, non-invasive variety of Oximeters which are used to measure blood oxygen levels. They work by measuring the oxygen in pulses on an individualâ€™s fingertip, which is why they are also referred to as Fingertip Oximeters. Portable Oximeters (or Travel Oximeters) are battery operated and can be used to measure oxygen levels on-the-go.
Although the technology behind Pulse Oximetry has been around since the late 30's and 40's, it was not until 1975 that bioengineer Takuo Aoyagi first successfully tested it on patients. Soon afterwards the technology took off commercially and has since become the standard for measuring blood oxygen levels. Prior to Pulse Oximeters, the only way to measure blood oxygen level was through a blood sample and laboratory test which would take up to 30 minutes.
