Pulse Oximeter devices provide firefighters with portability in vital sign monitoring

Firefighters have one of the most difficult professions in our society. These individuals on a daily basis risk their lives in order to save the lives of other. In many situations these individuals need to go in almost any environment or building structure in order to save lives. Because it is quite unpredictable for the firefighter to know exactly where they need to go when an emergency comes about the ability to have a medical device that can monitor the vital signs of victims that is also portable is extremely important to firefighters. For example, if the firefighter is required to report to an emergency fire inside a warehouse. They really do not exactly what the situation will be when they get there, through what obstacles they have to climb in order to get to the victims, and also to what extent will they need to treat the victim once they find them. A device that helps firefighters react and succeed in such situations is a pulse oximeter.

A pulse oximeter is a medical device that is used to measure pulse rate as well as blood oxygen saturation. These two vital signs are extremely important during emergency situations because they are a major indicator of the health and wellness of the victim. The new generation of pulse oximeter devices are quite small and portable. This however was not the case before as the old oximeter devices were quite large and definitely not portable. The new generation utilizes the latest in portable chip technology which has decreased the size of the device from what use to be the size of a computer screen monitor to a size that is only fraction of a cell phone. Because of its portability firefighters can rest assured that they have a device that they can take easily with them when they need to responde to emergency situations. Because the device accurately measures pulse rate as well as blood oxygen saturation, the firefighters will be able to take the device with them in any situation and upon finding the victims quickly have the victim place their finger inside the oximeter device. By doing this, the oximeter device will automatically and quickly calculate the pulse rate and the blood oxygen saturation of the victim and thus provide the firefighter with the information that he requires in order to save the life of the victim. In many situations the pulse oximeter is able to tell the firefighter that due to smoke the victim has not got enough oxygen and as such there may be a situation where they may require supplemental oxygen in order to bring their oxygen levels back to normal levels. Other situations may alert the firefighter that the individual is actually experiencing a cardiac failure like a heart attack and as such the firefighter needs to take certain actions in order to save the life of the person in cardiac arrest. The combination of portability and accuracy truly make the pulse oximeter a very useful device for firefighters when responding to emergency situations.
