Spo2 sensor is a measure of how much oxygen is in the blood.
People with respiratory or cardiovascular conditions, very young infants, and individuals with some infections may benefit from Spo2 sensor.
In this article, we look at how this Nellcor oximax Spo2 sensor work and what to expect when using one.
Disposable Spo2 Sensor
A Spo2 sensor test may clip to a finger, a foot to read blood flow.
Every system and organ in the body needs oxygen to survive. Without oxygen, cells begin to malfunction and eventually die. Cell death can cause severe symptoms and ultimately lead to organ failure.
The body transports oxygen to the organs by filtering it through the lungs. The lungs then distribute oxygen into the blood via hemoglobin proteins in red blood cells. These proteins provide oxygen to the rest of the body.
Spo2 sensor measures the percentage of oxygen in hemoglobin proteins, called oxygen saturation. Oxygen saturation usually indicates how much oxygen is getting to the organs.
Normal oxygen saturation levels are between 95 and 100 percent. Oxygen saturation levels below 90 percent are considered abnormally low and can be a clinical emergency.、
