If you often experience fatigue and drowsiness—even after nine hours of sleep, your heart rate increases and your head spins when you get up abruptly—these symptoms may indicate hypoxia. I understand what oxygen deficiency is, why hypoxia is dangerous and how to avoid it. Today, I want to tell you how to avoid hypoxia by […]
Oxygen is a key element for redox processes in the body, without which metabolism is impossible. This gas is required by all our organs – from the cardiovascular system to the brain. In a situation where a person experiences a lack of oxygen, hypoxia develops – a condition that poses a serious danger. That is
Against the background of oxygen deficiency, circulatory disorders can occur. This provokes the development of single and complex disorders in the body from memory impairment to paralysis. You can recognize an acute lack of oxygen by the following symptoms: Speech disorder Decreased sensitivity Tingling in the limbs Violation of the digestive tract In rare cases,
There are many diseases accompanied by a lack of oxygen in the blood, which is called hypoxia. Therefore, in medical institutions at all times, observations were made of the level of oxygen saturation of the capillaries of patients with chronic diseases of the lungs and heart. These measurements are also necessary for prescribing oxygen therapy
Before purchasing a pulse oximeter, you should study the devices that are on sale and read reviews on them. When buying, it is important to pay attention to functionality, quality, brand, price, and so on. That’s why Today, I am comparing 2 popular pulse oximeters: Yuwell YX 102 and ChoiceMMed MD300C21C… Yuwell Finger Pulse Oximeter
It is generally accepted that obstructive sleep apnea (short-term cessation of breathing during sleep) is dangerous for the heart. As a rule, obese people over 40 years of age, as well as those who suffer from chronic ENT diseases or have anatomical features of the structure of the nose, pharynx and larynx, suffer from problems
Pulse oximetry is the simplest and most affordable method for monitoring blood oxygen saturation. Previously, only blood gas analysis was used for this. However, the use of stationary and portable pulse oximeters makes it possible in most cases to avoid the need to conduct laboratory tests and receive diagnostic results immediately on the screen. The
During sleep, when there is a significant decrease in the tone of the muscles of the pharynx, the muscles relax and conditions are created for the complete collapse of the airways, the vibration of the mucous membrane when the walls approach in the narrowed areas of the airways causes vibrations, the sound phenomenon of snoring.
Today there is again a hype about pulse oximeters as Coronovirus started to rage again… Of course, similar devices are needed not only for people with severe diseases of the bronchopulmonary system and blood but also for normal healthy people. Many of my friends in the house have pulse oximeters from a variety of manufacturers
Pulse oximeters are devices for measuring the pulse and oxygen content in the blood. They can be used to determine the pathologies of the respiratory and cardiovascular systems. It will be useful for athletes and people who monitor their health after a myocardial infarction or stroke. This device has become very popular during the pandemic.
