  • Pulse oximetry is based on a relatively new concept, using the pulsatile variations in optical density of tissues in the red and infrared wavelengths to compute arterial oxygen saturation without need for calibration. [...] Key Result William New and Jack Lloyd recognized the potential importance of pulse oximetry and developed interest among anesthesiologists and others concerned with critical care in the United States. Success brought patent litigation and much competition.Expand Abstract
