Evaluation of the Ohmeda 3700 pulse oximeter.

Abstract:

Arterial oxygen saturation values (Sao2) from 60% to 98% were measured by the Ohmeda 3700 pulse oximeter with the three types of probe available and compared with values of oxygen saturation estimated from direct arterial sampling (arterial oxygen and carbon dioxide tensions and pH) on 65 occasions. The response time of the oximeter was measured after a sudden rise in inspired oxygen concentration. Artefact rejection was assessed by arterial compression proximal to the probe site, and by simu...
