  • Pulse Oximeter Essay

    Abstract— Optical Pulse Oximetry is feasibly the greatest advance in patient monitoring. Pulse Oximetry enables oxygenation, an important physiological variable that is poorly detected by clinical means, to be monitored continuously and easily. Hypoxemia is commonly found in all aspects of medical practice and is a major cause of organ abnormality and death. It should be widely available and used routinely in clinical practice both in primary care and in hospital. This paper will design a non-invasive optical pulse oximeter using the Arduino. The pulse oximeter consists of a sensor and an Arduino microcontroller. The (Photo Transistor) sensor is used for the pulse wave 's detection, and the Arduino microcontroller is designed to analyze…

  • Animal Physiology Lab Report

    Introduction: The heart rate of an animal can be used as an indicator to identify when a stimulus evokes a reaction from the animal. Specifically in the case of humans’, there tends to be the cognitive ability to physically withhold a reaction from a stimulus and mask the involuntary reaction. However, the heart rate reacts immediately after a stimulus, and is not reigned in or controlled cognitively, so could the heart potentially be a true indicator of an individuals reaction to a stimulus?…

    blood pressure is affected when the arm is positioned differently; blood pressure is highest when relaxed and fully extended and lowest when arm is held above subject’s head.

  • Heart And Lung Sounds Analysis

    Peripheral Pulse Checks and Amplitude Absence or diminished leg pulses may suggest peripheral arterial disease of intermittent claudication. Absence suggests occlusion by thrombus, embolus, or dissection. If the pulse is hypokinetic or of low volume and amplitude, this could suggest shock or myocardial infarction indicative of low cardiac output such in the case of cardiomyopathy, stenosis, tamponade, or pericarditis. Hyperkinetic or bounding pulses are large-amplitude and strong pulses may be…
