STUDY OBJECTIVES To determine the impact of averaging window-length on the "desaturation" indexes (DIs) obtained via overnight pulse oximetry (SpO2) at high altitude. DESIGN Overnight SpO2 data were collected during a 10-day sojourn at high altitude. SpO2 was obtained using a commercial wrist-worn finger oximeter whose firmware was modified to store… CONTINUE READING
