The development of a portable oximeter has allowed this investigation to be performed during the prehospital phase of a patient's care. Pulse oximetry was performed at the roadside in 25 patients with abnormal trauma scores and found to be of benefit in detecting and monitoring hypoxia in patients with airway obstruction, depressed respiration due to head injury, and, in particular… CONTINUE READING
