The aforementioned alarm is one of the primary features of the device. It serves to let the user, or a loved one, know that there could be a potential breathing issue. While the monitors are reliable, there may be some false alarms from time to time. It is important that you do not ignore any of the alarms, even if you feel that it might be false. Some of the monitors available are capable of measuring a number of different physiological parameters for both infants as well as adults. Some have features that sideline disruptions in the event of electromagnetic interference.
How apnea monitors work
The apnea monitor will hook up to the patient and measure the air flow into the lungs, as well as the amount of oxygen in the blood. The device will record the number of times you stopped breathing, and the length of time you stopped breathing. They will also measure the electrical activity in the heart, as well as the breathing rate. In addition, the monitor will trigger an alarm in order to wake you up so that you can start breathing again.
About apnea monitors
Many people have trouble with breathing, particularly while they are sleeping. The condition is apnea, and it means that they have periods of time that they simply stop breathing during the night. In order to help combat this, the use of apnea monitors could be a huge benefit. They are also helpful to those who have other respiratory conditions that can make it difficult to breath.
