What is a pulse oximeter, how to use it?

A pulse oximeter is a small clip-on device that measures pulse rate and oxygen saturation level in the blood. The device is supplied with a finger probe and contains an LED display, battery. The oximeter does two vital readings- pulse rate or heartbeat, and oxygen saturation of hemoglobin. While 60-100 is the safe range in terms of pulse rate recording, the normal reading for heartbeat range between 95-100 percent. If the range is lower than that, the user should get immediate medical assistance from a certified practitioner.
