The pulse oximeter PO40 from Beurer is intended for the non-invasive measuring the arterial oxygen saturation (SPO2) and the heart rate frequency (pulse rate). The oxygen saturation indicates how much percent of the hemoglobin in arterial blood is saturated with oxygen. That is why it is an important parameter for assessing the respiratory function. When measuring, the pulse oximeter uses two light rays with a different wavelength, which amounted to the finger placed on the inside of the housing on the finger placed in the device.
A low oxygen saturation value is in most cases caused by disorders
(asthma, heart failure, respiratory system disorders, etc.). In many cases, people with a low oxygen saturation value suffer from the following symptoms: breathlessness, increased heart rate frequency, reduction of performance, nervousness and sweat outbreaks. In the event of a chronic and known reduced oxygen saturation, controls must be carried out under medical supervision. The pulse oximeter is used for this.
With an acutely reduced oxygen saturation, with or without the associated symptoms, a doctor must immediately be consulted. It can be a life-threatening situation here. The pulse oximeter is therefore particularly suitable for risk patients (such as asthmaticians and persons with heart disease), but also for athletes and healthy persons who are often on large heights (such as mountain climbers, skiers or hobbyilots).
