OXYGEN SATURATION (SPO2)

OXYGEN SATURATION (SPO2)

The fraction of oxygen saturated haemoglobin relative to total haemoglobin is called SpO2. It is necessary to estimate an individual’s fitness level, which is usually given in percentages. SpO2 (oxygen saturation) is affected by a number of parameters, including oxygen availability, pulmonary gas exchange, haemoglobin content in red blood cells, and haemoglobin affinity for oxygen. A healthy person’s normal oxygen level is between 95 and 100 percent. Normal saturation levels suggest that the body is getting enough oxygen and that the internal organs are functioning properly. A very low blood oxygen level for a short period of time does not pose a major threat. However, if it continues, it puts strain on the heart and brain, as well as causing organ damage. The PPG signal obtained from a fingertip pulse oximeter is commonly used to measure SpO2 (oxygen saturation).  Chronic diseases such as asthma, heart disease, and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) cause low blood oxygen levels. 

They must track their oxygen levels to see if their therapies are effective. Shortness of breath, headaches, restlessness, dizziness, fast breathing, chest discomfort, disorientation, high blood pressure, loss of coordination, vision problems, euphoria, and a quick heartbeat are all indications of low blood oxygen levels.

VinCense Wireless Health Monitoring system measures the SpO2 with clinical grade accuracy for different skin tones ranging from light, medium to dark. Besides, it is the only solution capable of both screening and monitoring. The continual measurement of the vitals such as the SpO2, Pulse rate, Respiratory rate and Skin temperature can be done in an automated manner at specified intervals. Emergency alerts can also be sent to the stakeholders in case of abnormal values. This enables senior citizens and chronic disease sufferers to get virtual healthcare in the comfort and safety of their homes.

Use cases: COVID 19 patient remote monitoring, pulmonary disease management
