Pulse Oximetry Pulse Oximetry (SpO ) is one of the tools available to assist in assessing a patient’s cardiac and respiratory systems. This chapter explains how Pulse Oximetry works and how to use the HeartStart XL+ to monitor Overview Pulse oximetry is a non-invasive method of continuously measuring functional oxygen saturation (SpO in arterial blood.
9: Pulse Oximetry Understanding Pulse Oximetry Understanding Pulse Oximetry A pulse oximetry sensor sends light through patient tissue to a receiver on the other side of the sensor. Light-emitting diodes transmit red and infrared light through the peripheral areas of the body such as a finger.
Understanding Pulse Oximetry 9: Pulse Oximetry Selecting a Sensor The most important factor when selecting a sensor is the position of the light emitting diodes in relation to the photodetector. When the sensor is applied, the diodes and the photodetector must be opposite each other.
9: Pulse Oximetry Monitoring SpO WARNINGS: Failure to apply the sensor properly may reduce the accuracy of the SpO measurement. Inspect the sensor application site at least every two hours for changes in skin quality, correct optical alignment and proper sensor application. If skin quality is compromised, change the sensor site. Change the application site at least every four hours.
