Operation of the pulse oximeter (see previous problem ). The transmission of light energy as it passes through a solution of light-absorbing molecules is described by the Beer-Lambert law I = I 0 10 − ∈ C L or log 10 ( I I 0 ) = − ∈ C L which gives the decrease in intensity I in terms of the distance L the light has traveled through a fluid with a concentration C of the light-absorbing molecule. The quantity ∈ is called the extinction coefficient, and its value depends on the frequency of the light. (It has units of m 2 /mol.) Assume the extinction coefficient for 660-nm light passing through a solution of oxygenated hemoglobin is identical to the coefficient for 940-nm light passing through deoxygenated hemoglobin. Also assume 940-nm light has zero absorption ( ∈ = 0) in oxygenated hemoglobin and 660-nm light has zero absorption in deoxygenated hemoglobin. If 33% of the energy of the red source and 76% of the infrared energy is transmitted through the blood, what is the fraction of hemoglobin that is oxygenated?

Operation of the pulse oximeter (see previous problem). The transmission of light energy as it passes through a solution of light-absorbing molecules is described by the Beer-Lambert law

I = I 0 10 C L or log 10 ( I I 0 ) = C L

which gives the decrease in intensity I in terms of the distance L the light has traveled through a fluid with a concentration C of the light-absorbing molecule. The quantity is called the extinction coefficient, and its value depends on the frequency of the light. (It has units of m2/mol.) Assume the extinction coefficient for 660-nm light passing through a solution of oxygenated hemoglobin is identical to the coefficient for 940-nm light passing through deoxygenated hemoglobin. Also assume 940-nm light has zero absorption ( = 0) in oxygenated hemoglobin and 660-nm light has zero absorption in deoxygenated hemoglobin. If 33% of the energy of the red source and 76% of the infrared energy is transmitted through the blood, what is the fraction of hemoglobin that is oxygenated?

To determine
Fraction of hemoglobin oxygenated.

Explanation of Solution

Explanation

Given Info:

The formula to calculate the percentage of radiation transmitted is

log10(II0)=εCL

  • C is the concentration of the solution through which light is transmitting,
  • ε is the extinction co-efficient,
  • L is the length of the solution,

Rewrite the above equation in terms of C.

C=(log10(I/I0)εL)

The formula to calculate concentration of the oxygenated hemoglobin if 33% of the red source transmitted is

Coxy=(log10(Ioxy/I0)εL)

  • Coxy is the concentration of the hemoglobin oxygenated

33% of the energy of the red source transmitted through the blood. So,

Ioxy/I0=33%=0.33

Substitute 0.33 for Ioxy/I0 in the above expression to find concentration of the oxygenated hemoglobin Coxy .

Coxy=(log10(0.33)εL) (I)

The formula to calculate concentration of the deoxygenated hemoglobin if 76% of the red source transmitted is

Cdeoxy=(log10(Ideoxy/I0)εL)

  • Cdeoxy is the concentration of the hemoglobin deoxygenated

76% of infra red energy is transmitted through the blood
