  • Several pulse oximeter manufacturers have recently developed instruments that are claimed to be resistant to the effects of patient motion. [...] Key Method Twenty oximeters were studied. A motorized table produced different hand motions, and each motion was studied during both room air breathing and hypoxemia. Pulse oximeters on the nonmoving hand were used to provide control measurements for comparison. The Masimo SET((R)) pulse oximeter exhibited the best overall performance, with a performance index…Expand Abstract
