Measuring Balance In High Altitude

Due to Hypoxia and hypobaric conditions at high altitudes, oxygen saturation decreases. Ataxia might occur and the ability to maintain balance in challenges.This study aimed to determine whether a new balance assessment test, the Zur Balance Scale (ZBS) is sensitive enough to detect changes in the balance at high altitudes.

Oximeter Behavior While Using a Tourniquet

This letter is a case report presenting the behavior of an approved for marketing oximeter device under tourniquet test, while comparing it with another approved for marketing device, the Cnoga TensorTip MTX (this letter is not a clinical trial report). Pulse oximeter is aimed for measuring pulse and arterial oxygen saturation (SpO2) in the blood. The Tensor Tip MTX can measure over 15 bio parameters, among them are pulse and oxygen saturation.
