Pulse oximeter to monitor oxygen level and pulse rate

All of us have seen the covid-19 impact on the whole world. It started in the year 2019. When this pandemic was taking place over the world we were not aware of the pulse oximeter (commonly known as oximeter). Initially, the oximeter is being used in medical institutions only. But as we know time changes every system. Nowadays most of the person is having an oximeter in their home to use it.

A pulse oximeter is a portable electronic device that usually slides over the finger or ear lobe of human beings to monitor heartbeat and oxygen levels. When you breathe, oxygen enters into your lungs, passes through very thin membranes, and enters the bloodstream. In the bloodstream, red blood cells (RBC) picked up the oxygen and carried around the body to various organs. Oximeter checks blood oxygen levels via an oxygen saturation measurement called peripheral capillary oxygen saturation, also known as SpO2.
