Every organ and system requires adequate amount of oxygen to thrive and without the use of oxygen cells will eventually die and malfunction. Pulse oxygen is used for measuring oxygen percentage in haemoglobin proteins also known as saturation of oxygen. It implies the amount of oxygen being transferred to the organs. Moreover, pulse oximeters provide feedback pertaining to the effectiveness of the breathing interventions such as ventilators and oxygen therapy. Furthermore, creating alertness among health specialists regarding low oxygen levels specifically in new-borns is an advantage of pulse oximeters that is further strengthening the growth of the global pulse oximeters market.
Increasing need of monitoring patients in treatment and diagnosis regime along with increasing readmission limbo and healthcare costs are the key factors that are pertaining towards the growth of global pulse oximeters market. Monitoring of patients rampantly is thus incurring additional costs that is challenging in the scenario of limited healthcare budget. In order to attain cost efficiencies healthcare budget could be tackled with on the spot checking with the use of fingertip or handheld oximeters.
