Doctors and medics require monitoring your oxygen blood levels and cardiorespiratory status to keep you safe from fatal conditions such as heart attack, anemia or COPD.  While pulse oximetry is an easy, non-invasive monitoring system that keeps track of oxygen saturation, pulse rate and perfusion index (PI); True Wearables, a medical device start-up in California has developed Oxxiom – world’s first wireless, and completely disposable pulse oximeter.
