“Pulse oximetry is a painless way to monitor the oxygen level of the blood.”
“While your child exercises, we make periodic adjustments to the treadmill or stationary bicycle so that we can monitor changes in your child's heart rate, blood pressure, oxygen consumption, carbon dioxide production and pulse oximetry as he exerts himself.”
“Pulse oximetry is a safe, non-invasive, feasible and reasonably accurate test which has sensitivity which is better than that of antenatal screening and clinical examination.”
“Small studies of the pulse oximetry test – in which sensors are placed on a hand and foot – have proved inconclusive, so the National Institute for Health Research funded the study by Andrew Ewer and colleagues from Birmingham University and Birmingham Women's hospital to determine whether it would be useful for the NHS.”
“Excluding those, pulse oximetry identified 58% of unsuspected critical cases and 28% of major ones.”
“This study shows the potential benefit of pulse oximetry screening as part of that.”
“Around 120 babies would be critical cases, 90 of whom would be identified by pulse oximetry.”
“Diagnosis may require some or all of these tests: echocardiogram (also called "echo" or ultrasound) - sound waves create an image of the heart electrocardiogram (ECG) - a record of the electrical activity of the heart chest X-ray cardiac catheterization - a thin tube (catheter) is inserted into the heart through the large veins in the leg pulse oximetry - a painless way to monitor the oxygen content of the blood”
“Pediatricians from other hospitals refer newborns to the Cardiac Center when they notice symptoms or abnormal values on laboratory testing such as pulse oximetry.”
“Masimo sued Tyco Healthcare and others, alleging antitrust violations in markets for pulse oximetry, medical devices used to measure the concentration of oxygen in the blood.”
