The YWCA Bangkok-Pattaya Center donated two pulse oximeters to the Sawang Boriboon Foundation to measure patients’ oxygen saturation.
Chairwoman Praichit Jetpai presented the devices to Sinchai Wattanasartsathorn, president of the Pattaya Business & Tourism Association at the Sawang Boriboon headquarters in Naklua Oct. 2.
The oximeter indirectly monitors the oxygen saturation of a patient’s blood, as opposed to measuring oxygen saturation directly through a blood sample, and changes in blood volume in the skin, producing a photoplethysmogram.

The YWCA encouraged other Pattaya businesses and individuals to donate equipment to the foundation, which is the area’s main emergency first-responder organization.
