Comparison of a new forehead reflectance pulse oximeter sensor with a conventional digit sensor in pediatric patients.

Abstract

BACKGROUND During conditions of poor perfusion, the accuracy of conventional extremity-based pulse oximeters may be limited. Limited evidence suggests that forehead perfusion may be better preserved during such periods, but pediatric experience with newer forehead reflectance sensors is limited. We prospectively compared the accuracy of a forehead… (More)
