As decisions about the start of the fall semester continue to unfold, the Library’s overarching goals remain unchanged: to provide the most essential services and content possible in support of Georgetown's teaching, learning, and research agenda. We are committed to designing and delivering high quality services and resources in a manner that remains aligned with the evolving health and safety regulations and guidelines established by the government and the University.

We appreciate your understanding and cooperation as we deal with the challenges and opportunities of these unprecedented times. The Library is here to support you and the needs of Georgetown's academic community throughout this crisis and beyond.

Ear Wearable Pulse Oximeter Prototype

Click on the image above to open the photo gallery.

To make the pulse oximeter I used a MAX30100 chip within a breakout board, integrated with Arduino Uno and a Piezo Buzzer. The MAX30100 chip acts as a combined pulse oximetry and heart-rate monitor sensor solution.

The overall goal with this was to make a pulse oximeter that can be later converted to a ear wearable prototype that,

  • Modulates light from an IR LED and a red-light LED.
  • uses MAX30100 and Arduino.
  • Uisplays heart rate or oxygen saturation levels on Adruino IDE Serial printer, when connected to a computer.
  • For the piezo buzzer give a sound alert when heart rate and oxygen levels are below the standard rates. ( 93%).
