The Oxitone device is an innovative blood-oxygen monitor, called an oximeter, worn on the wrist. The blood-oxygen level is a critical statistic for patients with forms of COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease), who need to ensure that enough air is getting into their lungs. COPD usually accompanies diseases such as chronic bronchitis and emphysema, which cause the air passages to the lungs to become narrower and limit the availability of oxygen. Patients feel short of breath; they are limited in their capacity for physical activity and are at risk if they overdo it. - Ashkelon Israel - Friday 28th June 2013 (4 images)
