Refer to your facility's biohazard procedure for disposal of SPO2 attachments and probes when
they become unusable. Usually probes are disposed of as medical waste per facility procedures.
Patient Preparation for SpO2 Monitoring
When monitoring SpO2, the SpO2 attachment, the site selected on the patient, the SpO2
attachment's position on the patient, and the ambient environment will impact the performance
and operation of the parameter.
Selecting the Site and SpO2 Attachment
When applying the clips or grips to the patient, site preparation and the pressure and alignment
of the SpO2 attachment are important factors to consider. Select the most appropriate limb that
best fits the attachment's size. For measurements to be accurate and reliable, the optimum fit is
reached when the fiber head windows on the attachment oppose each other while covering skin
or nail. Refer to the instructions provided with the SpO2 attachment when selecting and
connecting the clip or grip.
