How Oximeter Works
During exercise, you breathe more heavily and more rapidly and your heart rate increases to supply muscles with needed oxygen. A pulse oximeter can be used during exercise to measure the oxygen saturation of your blood. Your pulse oximeter measurement naturally lowers during exercise because of changes that occur in oxygen-binding properties of red blood cells. Specific measurements vary depending on your health situation and exercise intensity.
A pulse oximeter is a non-invasive piece of equipment, often used in a health-care setting, typically placed on the end of your finger to measure your blood's oxygen saturation. The device uses red and infrared lights to measure the percentage of hemoglobin, which carries oxygen throughout your body. Measuring this way is possible because hemoglobin is a different color with and without oxygen, and absorbs different amounts of light depending on oxygen level. The difference between the amount of absorption provides a fairly accurate level of your oxygen saturation. Normal readings are between 95 and 100 percent. A reading below 90 percent is too low and may indicate hypoxemia, or low blood oxygen.
Benefits of Measurement During Exercise
An exercise pulse oximeter measures the level of oxygen in your blood during exercise and is a useful tool for serious athletes and people with health problems. For example, athletes routinely engaging in vigorous exercise, particularly at high altitudes, may wear pulse oximeters to ensure adequate oxygenation. Those with respiratory illnesses or recovering from surgery, meanwhile, may find wearing an exercise pulse oximeter during exercise useful for monitoring oxygen levels, the Pulse Oximeters website notes.
How to Use a Finger Pulse Oximeter
Turn on the pulse oximeter by firmly pressing the power button. The screen should light up almost instantly.
Place the sensor -- the part that opens and closes like a clothespin -- on any finger, with the sensor screen above the fingernail. If the sensor doesn't have a screen, run the cable along the back of the finger or hand. Don't use the thumb because readings are less reliable than finger readings.
Wait quietly while the pulse oximeter acquires a signal. This may take 10 seconds or more, depending on the device and the conditions. Excessive movement during measurement can decrease the accuracy of the result or may cause an error message.
Look at the display to see the heart rate, usually indicated with a heart or pulsing light. The percent of oxygen saturation is typically indicated by the symbol "SpO2." Many devices also have a pulse tone that beeps in time with the heart rate.
Leave the sensor on for continuous monitoring. The sensor can become uncomfortable or cause pressure sores if left on the finger too long. If only a single measurement is required, remove the sensor and press the power button to turn off the device.
