Review on Santamedical Pulse oximeter SM-165Although pulse oximeters are ubiquitous in medical settings, only recently have they become available for athletes. These small but powerful devices can give you a snapshot of your bodys ability to process oxygen, which is a key factor in performance if you live or train at altitude, or tend to over train. Here well investigate how these devices work, and how you might use them to optimize your performance.
What is a pulse oximeter?
A pulse oximeter is a device that measures blood oxygen levels (oxygen saturation or SpO2) by estimating the percentage of oxygen bound to hemoglobin in the blood. Pulse oximeters are small, portable, non-invasive and painless; theyre so convenient that theyre often used by pilots and people who work or train at high altitudes. Simply clip it to your (or your athletes) finger, and it will give you an accurate data reading.
How does a Pulse Oximeter work?
When oxygen is inhaled into the lungs, it attaches to hemoglobin (a protein in red blood cells). The red blood cells then transport oxygen into the bloodstream, allowing it to be dispersed to tissue. Most of us need about 550 liters of oxygen per day to function, but that volume can double or triple during exercise. As you train, your body will be able to utilize more oxygen, more efficiently.
To find out how much oxygen is in your blood, a pulse oximeter emits light (typically red and infrared) through one side of your finger onto a photodetector on the other side. As it passes through your finger, the light hits your blood cells, and is absorbed differently by the hemoglobin without oxygen (deoxyhemoglobin) than by the hemoglobin with oxygen (oxyhemoglobin). The quality of the light that makes it to the photo detector can tell us how much oxygen is in your bloodnormal ranges are typically from 94 percent to 100 percent.
