Variability of pulse oximetry measurement over 1 year in children with sickle cell disease depends on initial oxygen saturation measurement.


A prospective cohort of children with sickle cell disease (SCD) was evaluated to determine the variability of daytime pulse oximetry among three measurements over approximately 1 year. Fifty-eight participants were evaluated. Asymptomatic children with initial oxygen saturation < or = 92% had a mean range over 1 year of 4.6% (2.1-7.5%). In contrast… (More)
