The technology is of doubts, and why shouldn’t it? It continually evolves with something unbelievable, from de-railing the locomotives to allowing ourselves to wander across the world in clicks, and it has achieved everything that past generations could imagine. The world’s leading manufacturer Samsung is no different when it introduced the doctors in ourselves. Smartphones now calculate stress, or can they? Let’s see—How stress is measured in Samsung devices.
Let’s go through some pre-requisites first; SpO2— stands for peripheral capillary oxygen saturation, an assessment of the measure of oxygen in the blood.
More concretely, it is the portion of oxygenated hemoglobin (hemoglobin containing oxygen) correlated to the total amount of hemoglobin in the blood (oxygenated and non-oxygenated hemoglobin).
SpO2 is a measure of arterial oxygen saturation, or SaO2, which refers to the quantity of oxygenated hemoglobin in the blood.
(I am not a medical apprentice), just come to the point—so you want me to be straightforward:
SpO2 can be estimated as measures of stress by Pulseimetry, an obscure, non-invasive method.
You can effortlessly scale your SpO2 with the Withings Pulse. Green LED pulses swiftly, and then light-sensitive diodes recognize how much green light was consumed. When blood is present due to heartbeat, the more profound green light is absorbed. Within beats, less is absorbed.
As your heart taps blood, the flow within your arteries increments—the pulses. For example, let’s say you have a 100kg of blood, and it can absorb 100 candelas of light(very much hypothetical). When you shine 50 candelas of light, it absorbs all, and when you make the count to 150 candelas, it will absorb up to 100. The rest passes through—the sensor adapts this principle and determines the amount(the intensity) of light coming back and tells you the changes in blood flow.
These alterations in blood flow form top like patterns if you plot them on a graph.
So, the code calculates the number of peaks per minute and informs you of the Heart Rate.
No application can really calculate the stress levels in your body— well, at least accurately. It is highly subjective and depends on several factors such as— Primary feelings, Mood, affects, effects, circulating hormone levels, mindset, drugs, etc. So, preferably, how stress is measured in Samsung does, is collect the baseline oxygen levels and pulse rates of your body over weeks, months, on and on.
