Simulators, Transducer Output, Pulse Oximetry definition: Transducer output simulators designed to mimic the electrical output of pulse oximetry monitor transducers. Tests may be performed at any preestablished heart rate values (e.g., 45, 60, 90 bpm) and at various saturation values. Pulse oximetry transducer simulators are mostly used to assess an oximetry monitor's ability to reproduce the calibration ratio of the absorption ratio curve (i.e., R curve) that the manufacturer designed into it. Some simulators include capabilities for testing the electrical integrity of oximeters probe (e.g., short and open circuits).
Saturation definition: Impregnation of one substance by another to the greatest possible extent; that concentration of a dissolved substance that cannot be exceeded..
Oximetry definition: The determination of oxygen-hemoglobin saturation of blood either by withdrawing a sample and passing it through a classical photoelectric oximeter or by electrodes attached to some translucent part of the body like finger, earlobe, or skin fold. It includes non-invasive oxygen monitoring by pulse oximetry.
oximetry definition: determination of oxygen-hemoglobin saturation of blood either by withdrawing a sample and passing it through a classical photoelectric oximeter or by electrodes attached to some translucent part of the body like finger, earlobe, or skin fold; includes non-invasive oxygen monitoring by pulse oximetry.
Oxygen Saturation Measurement definition: The determination of oxygen-hemoglobin saturation of blood either by withdrawing a sample and passing it through a classical photoelectric oximeter or by electrodes attached to some translucent part of the body like finger, earlobe, or skin fold. It includes non-invasive oxygen monitoring by pulse oximetry.
OXIMETER, TISSUE SATURATION definition: An oximeter is a device used to transmit radiation at a known wavelength(s) through blood and to measure the blood oxygen saturation based on the amount of reflected or scattered radiation. It may be used alone or in conjunction with a fiberoptic oximeter catheter.
Low Blood Oxygen Saturation definition: A low level of the degree to which oxygen is bound to hemoglobin given as a percentage calculated by dividing the maximum oxygen capacity into the actual oxygen content and multiplying by 100. Oxygen saturation usually is measured using pulse oximetry.
Oxygen Saturation, Low definition: The calculated measurements indicating the degree to which oxygen is bound to hemoglobin is low.
High Blood Oxygen Saturation definition: A high level of the degree to which oxygen is bound to hemoglobin given as a percentage calculated by dividing the maximum oxygen capacity into the actual oxygen content and multiplying by 100. Oxygen saturation usually is measured using pulse oximetry.
Oxygen Saturation, High definition: The calculated measurements indicating the degree to which oxygen is bound to hemoglobin is high.
