Pulse oximetry (determination of arterial oxygen saturation (saturation) and heart rate (pulse) -. Non-invasive method using various sensors
saturation degree of oxygen shows the percentage of hemoglobin in the arterial blood is saturated by oxygen Therefore, it is an important parameter for the evaluation of the respiratory function..
The reason low oxygen saturation in most cases are pulmonary heart disease, etc. In people with low oxygen saturation, the following symptoms occur: shortness of breath, increased heart rate, decreased performance, nervousness and profuse sweating.
An instrumental analysis is prescribed for checking the saturation of the blood composition with oxygen molecules under the following conditions of the body and pathologies:
• In case of insufficiency of the respiratory system and its organs, regardless of its etiology.
• During treatment with oxygen therapy.
• During surgical interventions in the body.
• During the rehabilitation period after vascular surgery.
• With pathology of the blood flow system.
• During the treatment of diseases that are associated with the integrity of blood vessels.
• With genetic hereditary pathologies of the hemostatic system.
• With congenital pathology of destruction of erythrocyte molecules.
• With anemia of various etiologies.
• With the development of sleep apnea.
• With hypoxia of internal vital organs.
• With hypoxia of brain cells.
• In chronic pathology of hypoxemia.
• With sleep apnea.
• In case of carbon monoxide poisoning.
If a decrease in the degree of oxygen saturation is detected, constant monitoring with a pulse oximeter and consultation of a physician, a cardiologist, and a pulmonologist is necessary.
Special preparation of the patient for pulse oximetry is not required. This method will in any case reflect the oxygen saturation of the blood at this particular point in time.
Do not use a pulse oximeter in the following cases:
• If you are allergic to rubber products.
• Dirty fingers, fingers with applied varnish, plaster, false nails.
• Too large (width> 20 mm, thickness> 15 mm) or small (width <10 mm, thickness <5 mm) finger sizes.
• Presence of anatomical changes, edema, scars or burns on the fingers.
• If the measuring point on the finger is not at rest (eg when shaking).
It is possible to obtain incorrect or distorted measurement results:
- in persons with low blood pressure;
- in patients with jaundice;
- in patients taking medications for vasoconstriction;
- in people who have been injected with medical dyes in the past;
- in patients with abnormal hemoglobin levels;
- in persons with heart rhythm disturbances.
The test result is the measured value (oxygen saturation) in% and the heart rate (pulse rate).
Oxygen saturation (SpO2) test score table:
Measured SpO2 value (oxygen saturation) in%
Condition Assessment / Action Required
Reduced value: it is recommended to consult a doctor
Critical level: see a doctor immediately
The normal heart rate depends on the patient's age (pulse rate), for adults it is in the range of 60-90 per minute.
Pulse oximetry does not require any deep medical knowledge to interpret the result. The patient himself can compare the readings with the normal limits. Interpretation of the results is a somewhat more complex process that the attending physician deals with. It involves identifying the causes of low oxygen saturation or an unstable heart rate.
Based on the measurement results, do not try to diagnose yourself and do not self-medicate without consulting your doctor, you should not take new medications on your own or change the type and / or dosage of prescribed medications. Only a good specialist can, based on the results of pulse oximetry, prescribe the necessary follow-up examination and treatment.
