An Easy Guide to Pulse Oximeters

Oxygen is vital to system and organ function in our bodies. In order to be carried around the body, molecules of oxygen attach to the haemoglobin proteins in red blood cells. The amount of oxygen (measured as a %) in haemoglobin proteins is called ‘oxygen saturation’ and this percentage can be determined using pulse oximetry. The values from pulse oximetry are useful as they tell us how much oxygen is actually reaching the different organs and systems in the body.

Pulse oximetry uses devices called pulse oximeters that attach to an area on the patient where blood flow can be measured (most commonly on the finger). Light is then shone through the skin it is positioned on and a detector on the other side measures the amount of light that makes it through. The amount of absorbed light is indicative of the oxygen concentration and as such, a pulse oximeter does not directly measure oxygen saturation but rather closely estimates it.



Normal levels of oxygen saturation are between 95-100%. A value below 90% is considered abnormal and can be caused by a number of reasons including; suffocation, infections (e.g. pneumonia), lung diseases (e.g. emphysema or lung cancer), chemical inhalation, heart failure and sleep apnea. Being non-invasive, pulse oximeters are highly beneficial in many settings. They are not only useful in aiding diagnoses, but they are also useful in monitoring newborns, long-term assessment of patients with cardiovascular or respiratory conditions, and monitoring oxygen saturation in patients under anaesthesia.

  15. HOW I GOT CURED OF HERPES DISEASE
    I'm here to testify about what DR. OSO did for me. I have been suffering from (HERPES) disease for the past 5 years and had constant pain,especially inside my body. During the first year,I had faith in God that I would be healed someday. This disease started circulating all over my body and I have been taking treatment from my doctor, few weeks ago I came across a testimony of one lady on the internet testifying about a Man called DR. OSO on how he cured her from herpes disease. And she also gave the email address of this man and advised anybody to contact him for help for any kind of sickness that he would be of help.so I emailed him telling him about my (HERPES) he told me not to worry that i was going to be cured!! Well I never believed it,, well after all the procedures and remedies given to me by this man few weeks later i started experiencing changes all over me as DR. OSO assured me that I will be cured,after some time. I went to my doctor to confirm if I had finally healed Behold, it was TRUE,the test came out negative. So friends my advice is if you have such sickness or any other at all you can contact DR. OSO for help.

This is a year and 2 weeks since I was delivered from genital Herpes. All thanks to God for using this Great herbalist to heal me. I have promised to keep telling good things about Dr Sikies. Please feel free to share Your problems with him and don’t forget to tell him I did refer you to Him. Thanks. Write him on mail Drsikies@gmail.com He deals with Alzheimer virus, Cancer, HIV, Herpes, Genital, warts, ALS, BV, UTI, Virginal infection, Genital, Wart, HPV, Hepatitis A/B, Good luck, HSV, Pregnancy, Ex back.

2019 Africa Health Expo

This week Nicolas, Sheila and Andre represented SA Healthcare at the 2019 Africa Health Expo in Johannesburg. As Africa’s leading medical expo, Africa Health showcases the latest advances in healthcare products, healthcare services, and innovation, with hundreds of companies and medical professionals in attendance.


This year, SA Healthcare, one of the biggest medical wholesalers in South Africa, implemented a new synergistic strategy with their suppliers. By integrating their company with their trusted agencies, a new, dynamic stand was created that showcased a wide range of quality products and brands. Contec, Charder Medical, Ca-Mi, Aeonmed, CU Medical, Well.D, Pukang, and Kelly Med were all represented together by SA Healthcare, and their products were exposed to an extensive audience.

What is an Oxygen Concentrator and how does it work?

Well, the clue is in the name.

These machines suck in normal air – which has roughly 80 % nitrogen and 20% oxygen and force it through a special sieve.
They are used on patients who have poor lung function as the higher concentration of oxygen allows the patient to get sufficient oxygen.
So, how exactly does an oxygen concentrator work?
The oxygen concentrator’s sieves trap the nitrogen and pump out oxygen at concentrations of up to 95%. The purity of the oxygen depends on the size of the sieves and the power of the motor.
From there the sieves hold onto the nitrogen until they are saturated. Most machines have a 6000-8000 hour life span. After this time, the sieves need to be replaced.
Oxygen concentrators are not only convenient, but they are also affordable and do not need to be refilled on a regular basis. These factors make this medical device a commonly used item for oxygen therapy at home as well as on patients in hospital.
