Page 1 of 3 (39 total)

Pulse oximeter is used to measure the oxygen level (oxygen saturation) of the blood. It is considered to be a non-invasive, painless, general indicator of oxygen delivery to the peripheral tissues (such as the finger, earlobe, or nose). It is an easy, painless measure of how well oxygen is being sent to parts of your body furthest from your heart, such as the arms and legs.

What Are Pulse Oximeters Used For?

Pulse oximeters help us to check the oxygen levels in the blood. This information is required in many situations like:

  • To see if a ventilator is needed to help with breathing, or to see how well it’s working During or after surgery or procedures that use sedation
  • To check a person has moments when breathing stops during sleep (sleep apnea)
  • To see how well lung medicines are working
  • To check a person’s ability to handle increased activity levels

Many health conditions require constant monitoring of blood oxygen levels:

  • Heart attack
  • Heart failure
  • Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)
  • Anemia
  • Lung cancer
  • Asthma
  • Pneumonia


What Are the Risks of Pulse Oximetry?

Risk is involved in every medical procedure. The risks of this procedure may include:

  • If the probe falls off the earlobe, toe, or finger it may result in incorrect readings.
  • Skin irritation on the part where the probe touches your body from adhesive on the probe
