Design of Pulse Oximeters describes the hardware and software
needed to make a pulse oximeter, and includes the equations,
methods, and software required for them to function effectively.
The book begins with a brief description of how oxygen is delivered
to the tissue, historical methods for measuring oxygenation, and
the invention of the pulse oximeter in the early 1980s. Subsequent
chapters explain oxygen saturation display and how to use an LED,
provide a survey of light sensors, and review probes and cables.
The book closes with an assessment of techniques that may be used
to analyze pulse oximeter performance and a brief overview of pulse
oximetry applications. The book contains useful worked examples,
several worked equations, flow charts, and examples of algorithms
used to calculate oxygen saturation. It also includes a glossary of
terms, instructional objectives by chapter, and references to
