Oximeters Used by Paramedics
No matter what the medical emergency, the doctor replies heavily on a paramedic to his or her job in order to receive the emergency patient in a condition he or she can work with. In order to do this, vital signs of the emergency patient are key for communication from the paramedic to the receiving doctor. Speed and accuracy are critical in emergency situations. All paramedics take the blood pressure of the patient, and SPO2 readings, but recently new technology has been released which makes taking SPO2 readings faster while maintaining accuracy.
Finger pulse oximeter and hand held oximeter provide paramedics a new resource in comparison to before where they were restricted to large bulky oximeters. These new pulse oximeters have the same functions of the old devices, yet with more accuracy and portability. A pulse oximeter, also know as a pulse ox by some, is used to measure the blood oxygen saturation level of a patient, and take a pulse rate reading as well. Both of these parameters are recorded within seconds of the application of a pulse oximeter to the patient’s finger. The popularity of a finger pulse oximeter with paramedics has transferred into the hospital setting too. Just a simple walk down the halls of any hospital or clinic you will find that many nurses and doctors carry a pulse ox around their neck via a lanyard or in his or her pocket.
