Pulse Oximeter

Pulse Oximeter

Pulse Oximeter is a device that is used to measure the oxygen saturation of arterial blood in a patient by utilizing a sensor, attached typically to the finger, toe, or ear to determine the percentage of oxyhemoglobin in blood pulsating through a network of capillaries in the human body. It indirectly monitors the oxygen saturation of a patient’s blood.
