Pulse oximeters are used for diagnosis of sleeping disorders such as hypopnea and apnea

Pulse oximeter is particularly convenient for continuous measurement of blood oxygen saturation, noninvasively. Pulse oximeter can be used in any setting where patient’s oxygenation is not stable such as in intensive care, recovery, operating, emergency and hospital ward, pilots in unpressurized aircraft, patient at high altitude for assessment of any patient’s oxygenation, and to determine whether there is need for supplemental oxygen.

There are several types of portable pulse oximeters available. One type of at-home pulse oximeter is the fingertip Pulse Oximeters. Finger pulse oximeters are very small and can be placed just about anywhere on the finger. The main drawback of this type of oximeter is the need to constantly check the percentage of oxygen in the blood. If the finger pulse oximeter is not correctly used, it can lead to an inaccurate reading. This makes it unsafe for people who are CPR certified to use.

Pulse oximeter is also extensively used by mountain climbers and athletes as there is low concentration of oxygen at high altitudes or with extensive workout. Pulse oximeters are used for diagnosis of sleeping disorders such as hypopnea and apnea. The pulse oximeter with portable battery is useful for pilots operating in a non-pressurized aircraft where supplemental oxygen is required.
