Operation Everest II: comparison of four instruments for measuring blood O2 saturation.

Abstract

The bias and precision of four different methods for determining O2 saturation (SO2) were evaluated during a study of hypobaric hypoxia conducted with seven male subjects exposed progressively over a 40-day period to simulated altitudes from sea level (760 Torr) to 8,840 m (240 Torr). SO2 of arterial and mixed venous blood samples were measured with the… (More)
