What is a Pulse Oximeter?

A pulse oximeter is a medical device that measures the oxygen level in your blood. It's usually used to check how well your lungs are working. The device consists of two sensors that are placed on different parts of your body, usually your finger. One sensor emits red light and the other detects it. The amount of light detected helps estimate the amount of oxygen in your blood.

Why You Should Have One in Your Kit

If you have ever had an emergency, you know that every second counts. A pulse oximeter is a small, portable device that can measure your blood oxygen levels and heart rate. This information is critical in an emergency situation because it can help first responders and doctors make life-saving decisions. There are many different types of emergencies, but some of the most common include:

• Cardiac arrest

• Heart attack

• Stroke

• Anaphylaxis

• Asthma attack

• Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) exacerbation

In each of these emergencies, time is of the essence. A pulse oximeter can provide vital information to first responders and doctors so that they can make the best possible decisions for treatment. This device can be the difference between life and death in an emergency situation.

How to Use It

If you or someone you know has asthma, COPD, heart disease, or any other condition that may affect their breathing, it's a good idea to keep a pulse oximeter in your first aid kit. Here's how to use it:

 

1. Place the sensor on the person's finger.

 

2. Press the power button to turn on the device.

 

3. The display will show the person's current blood oxygen level and pulse rate.

 

4. If the oxygen level is below 90% or the pulse rate is above 100 beats per minute, seek medical help immediately.

Disadvantages

There are a few disadvantages of pulse oximeters that are worth mentioning. First, they can be expensive, so if you are on a budget, you may want to consider other options. Second, they require batteries, so if you are in an area with no power or your batteries die, you will not be able to use the device. Finally, pulse oximeters can give false readings if the person's skin is very dry or if they have nail polish on their fingers.

Tips for Using It Correctly

If you have a heart condition or are at risk for one, you should keep a pulse oximeter in your first aid kit. Here are some tips on how to use it correctly:

 

1. Check your pulse before using the oximeter. Place your index and middle finger on the side of your neck, just below your jawline. Use your other hand to check your watch and count the number of times your pulse beats in 15 seconds. Multiply this number by 4 to get your beats per minute (bpm).

 

2. Clip the sensor onto your finger. The sensor is usually a small, plastic clip that goes on the end of your finger.

 

3. Press the power button to turn on the oximeter.

 

4. Wait for the reading. The oximeter will usually take 5-10 seconds to give a reading.

 

5. Remove the sensor and power off the oximeter when finished.

Because knowing only a little bit about pulse oximetry can be misleading. A pulse oximeter measures the level of oxygen saturation in your red blood cells. This handy tool, which is usually clipped to the end of your finger or earlobe, has gained attention during the COVID-19 pandemic as a potential tool to identify hypoxia (low blood oxygen saturation) which is one troubling sign of severe illness caused by COVID-19. So, should everyone make sure they have a pulse oximeter in their medicine cabinet? Not necessarily. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) considers pulse oximeters to be prescription medical devices, yet most pulse oximeters that are found on the internet or in drug stores are specifically labeled “not for medical use” and have not been reviewed by the FDA for accuracy. And when we’re talking about the purpose behind purchasing a pulse oximeter during, and specifically for, the pandemic—accuracy matters. Yet we’ve seen an upcropping of opportunistic manufacturers selling pulse oximeters as a medicine cabinet staple. We saw something similar happen with hand sanitizer when the pandemic first began. While the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is clear that washing your hands with soapy water is best, they suggest using hand sanitizer as a reliable option when a sink isn’t readily available. As a result, huge amounts of hand sanitizer were sold and nearly every store became out of stock. Seeing the need, many companies began manufacturing and selling hand sanitizer quickly. And it soon became apparent that not all products are created equally, resulting in the FDA coming down hard on poorly made sanitizer solutions. There is now a list of hand sanitizers that consumers are recommended to avoid—either because they are ineffective or even potentially cause harm. Taking a step back, pulse oximeters have been around for 50 years and they are a valuable tool available to patients and providers when collaboratively tracking oxygenation of the blood while treating some chronic lung and heart diseases. They are typically introduced during a medical setting as one tool to use to report back on overall disease management. During the pandemic, they might even be recommended, under the guidance of your healthcare provider, to self-monitor COVID-19 related symptoms.
