Pulse oximetry devices are used for measuring the oxygen content bound to hemoglobin within a patient's blood stream. The measurement is taken non-invasively by attaching the device to an adult patient's finger or earlobe, whereas in neonatal patients, the device can be attached to the foot, due to the patient's smaller size. A light containing both red and infrared wavelengths is passed through this part of the body. A measure of oxygenation can be made based on the ratio of changing absorbance of the red and infrared light caused by the difference in color between oxygen-bound and oxygen unbound blood hemoglobin.
While pulse oximetry equipment is already widely used in hospitals, the market is still expected to grow with technological advancements and product innovation, and the expanding use of sophisticated multi-parameter monitoring devices. As these multi-parameter monitoring devices almost always include pulse oximetry as one of their capabilities, they account for the bulk of pulse oximetry procedures performed in hospitals.
