The aging European population will contribute to the increasing usage of healthcare services. Pulse oximetry, being the most common measurement in healthcare, will stand to benefit. Pulse oximetry can be used across all levels of care in hospital, alternate and home environments. Within the hospital environment, patients with respiratory and cardiac complications are continuously monitored with pulse oximeters. Measurements can also be taken at select intervals (5 to 15 minutes) depending on the condition of the patient.
The level of oxygen present within the body is vital to its function. Monitoring of oxygen saturation within the body consists of measuring the percentage of hemoglobin binding sites in the bloodstream occupied by oxygen. As oxygen travels around the body it is consumed and the levels decrease. Functionality can be affected, and complications can result when cells do not have an adequate supply.
