Schreiner, C, Catherwood, P, Anderson, JMCC and McLaughlin, JAD (2010) Blood Oxygen Level Measurement with a chest-based Pulse Oximetry Prototype System. In: Computing in Cardiology, Belfast. EMB. 4 pp. [Conference contribution]
This is the latest version of this item.
This paper presents a prototyped novel chest-based Pulse Oximetry system, and reports on test results from comparative trials with a commercially available finger-based Pulse Oximetry system using several human subjects. The system was iteratively optimized through adjustment of optical component alignment (angular position, component distance, photosensitive area etc.) and through fine-tuning of LED intensity and receiver sensitivity. This work is significant and timely as it provides compelling evidence that SpO2 measurements from the chest offer a genuine commercial solution for bedside and ambulatory vital-signs monitoring.
