Abstract
The glucose concentration in arterial plasma has immediate effects on the optical properties of blood-bearing tissue due primarily to the alteration of refractive index mismatch between the scattering particles (red blood cells) and the medium (plasma). The influence of these effects on pulse oximetry is investigated using a numerical model based on Mie theory. The objective is to determine whether or not physiological fluctuations in blood glucose levels could sufficiently vary the optical properties to shift the calibration curve of a commercial pulse oximeter significantly.
