Comparison of Latencies and Time to Stabilization of Pulse Oximeters at a Tertiary Health Care Facility

Introduction: Fingertip pulse oximeters are commonly used as non-invasive modes of measuring oxygen saturation (SpO2) and heart rate (HR) in critical care units. In these cases, a shorter duration of time required obtaining the measurement and time to stabilization is crucial. Objective: Our aim was to compare two new generation pulse oximeters with respect… (More)
