IPhone 5 and Pulse Oximeter Merge

Apple is the biggest corporation in the United States. Some financial establishments have stated that Apple has more cash on hand than the federal government. What can take credit for this abundant success? Well there are plenty of products on Apple’s product line, but one truly stands out. It is the iPhone, which revolutionized the smart phone industry as a whole. A decade ago, people wanted smaller and sleeker mobile phones, and now it is all about features and screen sizes. The iPhone was first released back in 2007, and we are already on its latest version which is the iPhone 5. Apple recently announced that the new iPhone 5 will be released to the public on October 4th, 2011. From which time, it will be on sale two to three weeks from then. Of course we know that getting one will be a feat all on its own.

Just like the iPhone has been a breakout hit, so has been the pulse oximeter. A pulse oximeter, also known as a pulse ox, is a medical device used to measure blood oxygen saturation and pulse rate of an individual. Over the past decade, a pulse oximeter has become more and more common at home in the United States. A recent poll indicated that almost 30% of homes now have an oximeter in their medical cabinet. This fact was under Apple’s radar, because the new iPhone 5 is expected to have an incorporated pulse oximeter application. This application will focus on connecting gather vital sign information of the individual, and prepare it to be transferred to software for analysis.

Currently, there are plenty of applications on the market which focus on health rated issues. Most of these applications focus more on cardiovascular issues, but a recent awareness of respiratory issues has changed the scope of application developing companies. The importance of these applications does not completely reply on the iPhone, but rather on mobile computing. Mobile computing is becoming more and more important, and for this reason companies are shifting their focuses. Mobile computing fortunately goes hand in hand with the health care industry. Mobility and ease of use are key factors in the health care industry, because they correlate to fast response times.
