Oximetry Sensor

Masimo, the innovator and leader of motion and low perfusion tolerant pulse oximetry, Healthy term neonates were monitored with pulse oximetry immediately before, during, and after, circumcision procedures.
A pulse oximeter is a device intended for the non-invasive measurement of arterial blood oxygen saturation (SpO2) and pulse rate. Oximeters are used medically by patients with asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)...

Since the general availability of pulse oximeters in the 1970's, many thousands of lives have been saved. Pulse oximeter has become a critical piece of instrument in healthcare industry.

The small, light weight Sensor was built with a couple of nanometer wave length sorted LED chips bonded on one side and receiver chips on the other. The measurement is taken with a few seconds. It is widely used in Hosiptals for detection of oxygen and CO level in blood. The reading is accurate, fast.
