Measurement of right atrial oxygen saturation by fiberoptic oximetry accurately reflects mixed venous oxygen saturation in swine


Continuous fiberoptic measurement of mixed venous oxygen saturation (SvO2) via a pulmonary artery catheter is a useful, though invasive, monitoring technique. Continuous right atrial venous oxygen saturation measurement by oximetry offers the potential of a significantly less invasive SvO2 measurement. However, catheter motion, character of the vessel… (More)
