An oximeter is a medical device used to measure the oxygen saturation level in your blood, often referred to as SpO2. It works by emitting light through a part of your body, typically a fingertip, and detecting how much of that light is absorbed by oxygen-carrying haemoglobin in your blood. The device then calculates your oxygen saturation percentage based on this information. It's a quick and non-invasive way to assess your blood oxygen levels.
Monitoring oxygen saturation is important because it helps assess how well your body is oxygenated. It is a critical parameter, especially for individuals with respiratory conditions, such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), asthma, or during acute illnesses like COVID-19. Low oxygen saturation levels can indicate potential health issues and the need for medical intervention, such as supplemental oxygen or changes in your treatment plan.
A normal oxygen saturation level for most healthy individuals is typically between 95% and 100%. However, it's important to note that normal ranges can vary slightly depending on factors like age, altitude, and certain medical conditions. If your oxygen saturation level falls below 90%, it is generally considered low, and you should seek medical attention. Low oxygen saturation can lead to symptoms like shortness of breath, confusion, and bluish skin colouration (cyanosis), which require prompt evaluation and treatment by a healthcare professional.
