Why Are People Using Oximeters And Who Are Using Oximeters?

First of all, let’s first understand the harm of hypoxemia to the human body. The most obvious point is that dizziness is easy to be sleepy. If the blood oxygen content is insufficient for a long time, the cerebral cortex will be injured first, and there will be a series of serious consequences such as cardiac arrest, myocardial failure, and blood circulation failure. In the past, measuring blood oxygen was a very troublesome thing, and now the Oximeter has become the first choice for many elderly people.

1. People with vascular disease (coronary heart disease, hypertension, hyperlipidemia, cerebral thrombosis, etc.)

There is lipid deposition in the lumen of the blood vessel, and poor blood flow can cause difficulty in oxygen supply.

2. Cardiovascular and cerebrovascular patients

Viscous blood, combined with coronary arteriosclerosis, narrows the lumen of the blood vessel, resulting in poor blood supply and difficulty in oxygen supply. The body is "hypoxic" every day. With long-term mild hypoxia, the functions of organs such as the heart and brain, which consume large amounts of oxygen, will gradually decline. Therefore, patients with cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases who use pulse Oximeter to detect blood oxygen content for a long time can effectively prevent the occurrence of danger. If hypoxia occurs, make oxygen decision immediately, which can effectively reduce the chance of disease attack.

3. People with respiratory diseases (asthma, bronchitis, chronic bronchitis, pulmonary heart disease, etc.)

Blood oxygenation of patients with respiratory systems is indeed very important. On the one hand, breathing difficulties will lead to insufficient oxygen uptake. On the other hand, the persistence of asthma will also block small branch organs, making gas exchange difficult, leading to hypoxia. Causes different degrees of damage to the heart, lungs, brain and even kidneys. Therefore, using pulse Oximeter to detect blood oxygen content can reduce the incidence of respiratory tract.

4. The elderly over 60 years old

The human body relies on blood to transmit oxygen. If there is less blood, there will naturally be less oxygen. Oxygen is low, and the physical condition naturally declines, so the elderly must use pulse blood oxygen to detect the blood oxygen content every day. Once the blood oxygen is lower than the alert level, oxygen needs to be replenished as soon as possible.

5. Sports and fitness crowd

Prolonged mental work and strenuous exercise are prone to hypoxia, which affects the health of myocardium and brain. Such as sports enthusiasts; mental workers; plateau tourism enthusiasts.

6. People who work more than 12 hours a day

The oxygen consumption of the brain accounts for 20% of the total body oxygen uptake. The brain oxygen transition will inevitably rise during the transition of mental work. However, the body's oxygen intake is limited, with more consumption and less intake. In addition to causing dizziness, fatigue, poor memory, slow response, etc., it will also cause serious damage to the brain's myocardium, and even death from overwork, so people who study or work 12 hours a day must use a pulse Oximeter to test blood every day. Oxygen content, monitoring blood oxygen health from time to time, to ensure a healthy mind and brain.
