Oximeters, In Vitro
Definition : Oximeters used for determining the oxygen saturation in arterial blood (SpO2) and hemoglobin forms in blood samples. The operation of these oximeters is based in measuring the light intensity that passes through a blood sample at different wavelengths, either using photometric or spectrophotometric techniques. In vitro oximeters are used in central clinical laboratories and also in surgical area and critical care units.
