The principle of the pulse oximeter can be explained by modified Beer-Lambert law [2, 9, 10], where, I ([lambda]) is detected light intensity, [I.sub.o]([lambda]) is the incident light intensity, [epsilon]([lambda]) is a molar absorption coefficient, C is the molar concentration, [bar.l]([lambda]) is them mean path length, and G([lambda]) is appropriate factors that account for the measurement geometry.
