Opto Circuits (India) Ltd. – Product Description
1) Pulse Oximeters
A pulse oximeter is a patient monitoring system which provides continuous confirmation that the
delivery of oxygen to the tissues is adequate. It is used to measure the level of oxygen saturation in the
blood, the pulse rate . These are used in operation theatres as well as intensive care units. These have
now been enhanced with added features like connectivity to the computer, nurse call back facility &
features like battery back up, which puts it in the league of International brands. There are 2 types of
1) Hand-held Pulse Oximeter 2) Desk Top Pulse Oximeter
2) Multiparameter Monitors:
These systems are used for monitoring the patient’s vital
signs such as ECG, blood pressure, temperature, oxygen level
saturations and heart rate. Multi Parameter Monitors are
used in intensive care units & specialty clinics. These are
now enhanced with added features like connectivity to the
network & battery back up.
3) Pulse Oximeter Sensors
The Pulse Oximeter sensors are used with Pulse Oximeters and with Multi parameter monitors. These
products are the interface between the patient & the Monitoring systems. The sensor types depend on
the different applications & usage. Broadly there are two types: Disposable & Reusable sensors.
a) Disposable sensors are one time use sensors.
These are hygienic, avoid allergies etc. and are
gaining importance since healthcare awareness is
on a rise. Since it is used on one patient & only
once, patients are more comfortable with these
b) Reusable sensors as the name suggests can be reused. Currently it
is being used widely but due to hygiene awareness the shift is more
towards disposable sensors
4) Digital Thermometer: The conventional mercury based
thermometers are banned in US and many other countries. This is
mainly because the exposure to mercury is hazardous & unsafe to
use. Whereas Digital thermometers being very safe to use comes
with a microprocessor chip and thermistor for enabling quick and
accurate measurement of body temperature.
5) Cholesterol Monitors: Cholesterol monitor is a portable
battery operated instrument, which uses an invasive method of
measuring the total cholesterol in the blood. It displays the
cholesterol level through an LCD panel. The unit also
undertakes health risk analysis based on the cholesterol value
to indicate heart attack & cardiac arrest risk for various ages.
This health risk analysis is US FDA approved. The instrument has
a facility to store the cholesterol value along with the date &
time of the measurement in the personalized health card
6) Fluid Warmers: The Thermal Angel is an in-line, battery-
powered disposable, lightweight and completely portable blood
and IV fluid infusion warming device, capable of intravenous
application and irrigation warming.
7) Coronary Stent Technology: A stent is an artificial tube inserted into the
body to clear an artery which is blocked. A blocked artery could lead to
heart problems and coronary stents help to clear the artery blocked by
plaque thus ensuring regular blood flow to and from heart. The stent is
placed in the artery using a rubber tube called catheter which has a balloon
attached to its tip.
