MedChoice patented Reflectance Pulse Oximetry (RPO) technology is what allows SPO Medical's Pulse Oximeter to effectively monitor an athlete during such activities as: Mountain Climbing, High-Altitude Street Cycling, Light Jogging, Speed Walking and Running.
These Pulse Oximeters are based on MedChoice's uniquely patented algorithms that use the Reflective Pulse Oximetry Technology for accurate oximetry measurement.
What is Pulse Oximetry?
Pulse oximetry is a very important non-invasive process used to measure blood oxygen saturation levels (SpO2) by monitoring the percentageof hemoglobin (Hb), which is saturated with oxygen as well as measuring heart rate. This procedure has been used regularly in hospitals during the past twenty years and is established as an essential measurement in medical practice, to ensure maintenance of adequate oxygen and prevention of respiratory difficulty.
In many disease states, oxygen saturation is one of the most important vital signs to monitor.
