Accuracy of carboxyhemoglobin detection by pulse CO-oximetry during hypoxemia.


BACKGROUND Carbon monoxide poisoning is a significant problem in most countries, and a reliable method of quick diagnosis would greatly improve patient care. Until the recent introduction of a multiwavelength "pulse CO-oximeter" (Masimo Rainbow SET(®) Radical-7), obtaining carboxyhemoglobin (COHb) levels in blood required blood sampling and laboratory… (More)
