Monitors, Environmental, Oxygen
Definition : Environmental monitors designed to display the concentration of oxygen in the atmosphere. These monitors typically include appropriate sensors (e.g., electrochemical), a control unit, and a display; they may also include alarms (e.g., sound, visual) activated at several prefixed concentrations, recording capabilities, and/or a transmitter for remote central monitoring. Oxygen monitors are electrically powered devices (either line- or battery-powered) that are typically used to detect the presence of oxygen in rooms. Dedicated monitors intended mainly to initiate a display and/or an alarm when the oxygen level in the air is below a pre-established limit to protect the safety of patients and/or healthcare personnel are also available.
