  • Blood pressure chart

    Blood pressure readings have two numbers, for example 140/90mmHg.  The top number is your systolic blood pressure. (The highest pressure when your heart beats and pushes the blood round your body.) The bottom one is your diastolic blood pressure. (The lowest pressure when your heart relaxes betwe...

  • Effects of Skin Pigmentation on Pulse Oximeter Accuracy at Low Saturation

    PULSE oximetry theoretically can compute arterial hemoglobin oxygen saturation from the ratio of the pulsatile to the total transmitted red light divided by the same ratio for infrared light transilluminating a finger, ear, or other tissue. The derived saturation should be independent of skin pig...

  • What Are the Four Parts of the EKG Machine?

    The EKG, or Electrocardiogram, is a machine used to monitor and evaluate possible heart problems in a medical patient. Small electrodes are placed on the chest, sides, or hips. The electrical activity of the heart will then be recorded on special graph paper for a final result. There are four pri...

  • Holter monitor

    In medicine, a Holter monitor  is a type of ambulatory electrocardiography device, a portable device for cardiac monitoring (the monitoring of the electrical activity of the cardiovascular system) for at least 24 to 48 hours (often for two weeks at a time). The Holter’s most common use is f...

  • How to clean a Pulse Oximeter and Reusable SpO2 Sensors

    Cleaning oximetry equipment is just as important as proper use. For surface-cleaning and disinfecting the oximeter and reusable SpO2 sensors we recommend the following procedures:   Turn off the oximeter before cleaning Wipe exposed surfaces with a soft cloth or a pad moistened with a mild deter...

  • What does SpO2 mean? What is a normal SpO2 level?

    SpO2 stands for peripheral capillary oxygen saturation, an estimate of the amount of oxygen in the blood. More specifically, it is the percentage of oxygenated haemoglobin (haemoglobin containing oxygen) compared to the total amount of haemoglobin in the blood (oxygenated and non-oxygenated haemo...

  • why you need to monitor your ECG

    An ECG test monitors your heart’s electrical activity and displays it as moving line of peaks and dips. It measures the electrical current that runs through your heart. Everybody has a unique ECG trace but there are patterns of an ECG that indicate various heart problems such as arrhythmias. So w...

  • Wireless sensor technology

    The iconic image of a hospital patient is a frail figure lost in a tangle of wires and cables connected to large, noisy machines.  Those wires and cables are beginning to be replaced by wireless technologies similar to those that have cleaned up the thicket of cables in our office workstations.  ...
