All the patients were screened by portable pulse oxymeter while breathing at room air after 30 minutes of complete rest.
Under the Ministry initiative the medical equipment such as video Laparoscopy, Ultra Sound Scanner, Colonoscopy, hysteroscopy, high pressure stream sterilizer, electro surgical and patient warming, patient monitor, 630 ATYS system, incubator, warmer, intrusion pump, plus oxymeter, 300 KVA generator have been provided to the Tellippalai base hospital.
Sp[O.sub.2] and HR were monitored using a pulse oxymeter (PM100N Nellcor[TM], Medtronic, USA), and EtC[O.sub.2] was detected using the Ultracare SLP 100 Anesthesia Monitor (SPACELABs Healthcare, USA).
The following water quality parameters were assessed once a day throughout the experimental period (LC50, 96h and therapeutic baths): pH and temperature with a multiparameter probe YSI Professional Plus, and dissolved oxygen with a digital oxymeter. Total ammonia was calculated by indophenol blue method and alkalinity by the neutralization titrating method at the start and finish of the experiment.
We have all necessary equipments and medicines, including ECG machines, ambu bags, pulse- oxymeter and oxygen cylinders," Ghule added.
Alterations in Sp[O.sub.2] of mice in the CIH chamber were monitored with a pulse oxymeter specifically designed for mice (Physiosuite, Kent Scientific[C], Connecticut, USA).
Trans-cutaneous arterial saturation and heart rate were measured at a fingertip with a pulse oxymeter (OxiMax[R]N-595, Nellcor, Pleasantn, CA) before each evaluation for AMS.
We used a pulse oxymeter device "Eloks"--01S2 (CJSC EMC "NoviePribori," Samara) to evaluate the activity of patients' autonomic nervous system by heart rate variability (HRV).
Oxygen saturation measured by pulse oxymeter at room temperature was found to be below 92% in 80% of the patients; the mean oxygen saturation was found to be 82%.
The salinity ([+ or -]0.1 psu) was monitored with an YSI85 oxymeter, which was first calibrated with a standard SW sample (Ocean Scientific International IAPSO Standard Seawater).
Blood oxygen was monitored continuously by an Edan pulse oxymeter. In his sleeve pocket he carried a back-up oxygen meter for an emergency.
