Pulse Oximeter Devices And What To Expect In The Future
Although pulse oximeter devices have gone through many transformations through the years there still remains many exciting new changes that will be coming to the device. One of the major changes that will be coming is the way that the device can wirelessly communicate with the physician’s computer system in his office to monitor your health. This is in development but will most likely utilize such technology as Bluetooth in order to be able to transmit that data to the physician’s computer. Why would this be beneficial you may be asking? Well, imagine that you are on a trip away from home and far from your physician who monitors you on a daily basis. Also, imagine that you are suffering from COPD and that it is imperative that you measure your blood oxygen saturation or SpO2 on a daily basis. Well, when you are on vacation all you need to do is simply place your finger inside the pulse oximeter and that data is automatically routed to your doctor for analysis.
If you doctor sees that the pulse oximeter readings are not normal or something that is cause for concern then they can make their professional recommendation as what you should do. It will be in essence as if your doctor is with you the entire time wherever you go and keeping an eye on your health. The other advancements that are coming is actually the ability to use hologram images for the readings of the devices. These hologram images will allow for much easier use and reading of the product and thus improve the overall experience of the device. So it really would not matter what lighting situation or environment you are in you can easily read the screen and interpret the results in order to monitor your health.
