Oximeters, In Vitro, Point-of-Care
Definition : Oximeters designed for determination of only a small number of critical parameters (e.g., oxygen saturation, total hemoglobin) at the point of Care. These oximeters use smaller whole-blood samples and are simpler to operate than laboratory oximeters, while producing fast and reasonably accurate results. Point-of-care oximeters are used in sites such as surgical suites, cardiac catheterizations areas, critical care rooms, and the patient's bedside.
