It is put on the finger, which is one of the parts of the body together with the earlobe, where there is more microcirculation. In this way, when the polarized light passes through the finger, it is possible to measure the red blood cells that are circulating in the body and interpret how much hemoglobin is circulating through it and thus calculate the oxygen saturation in the patient’s blood.
Difficulty breathing is one of the symptoms associated with covid-19 and although most of the time it is an easy sign for the patient to detect, there are cases in which this dyspnea is not perceived by the affected person, leading to hypoxia or silent shortness of breath, hence the need for an oximeter.
