Patient Evaluation


Oximetry Noninvasive Method/Pulse Oximetry/Defined -most appropriate noninvasive technique for continuous monitoring of oxygen saturation(Sp02)and pulse.
Oximetry Noninvasive Method/Pulse Oximetry/Normal Range - normal range = 93-97%
Oximetry Noninvasive Method/Pulse Oximetry/Equipment - probe attaches to finger and transmits light pulses through the capillary beds.
Oximetry Noninvasive Method/Pulse Oximetry/Troubleshoot - if there is a sudden fall in readings without a change in the patients condition then there is a possible malfunction of the probe.= probe needs to be changed.
Oximetry Noninvasive Method/Pulse Oximetry/Saturation - displayed saturations from pulse oximeters are accurate in patients with good perfusion and saturation of 70%or higher
Oximetry Noninvasive Method/Pulse Oximetry/Recommended - recommended for monitoring during sleep studies - evaluating resting and exercise desaturation
Oximetry Noninvasive Method/Pulse Oximetry/Accuracy - accuracy affected by perfusion(shock and hypotension) - conditions that interfere with light(erythema, bright ambient lights
Oximetry Noninvasive Method/Pulse Oximetry/Readings - pulse oximeters will read higher saturation if carbon monoxide is present.
Oximetry Overnight Pulse Oximetry/Describe - - assessment of oxygen saturation during an overnight period through the use of pulse oximetry.
Oximetry Overnight Pulse Oximetry/Indications - as a screening tool for identifying patients with sleep related breathing disorders. - to asses response to treatment for obstructive sleep apnea.
Oximetry Overnight Pulse Oximetry/Invasive/Co-Oximeter/Hemoximeter - used to diagnose carbon monoxide poison (>20% COHb)
Oximetry Overnight Pulse Oximetry/Invasive/Co-Oximeter/Hemoximeter Normal - normal COHb = 1-3% - smokers COHb = 5-10% - heavy smokers = 10-15%
Oximetry Overnight Pulse Oximetry/Invasive/Co-Oximeter/Hemoximeter - best method to evaluate oxygenation in patient with CO poisoning
Oximetry Overnight Pulse Oximetry/Invasive/Co-Oximeter/Setup - works like pulse ox, except that a blood sample and more wave-lengths are used instead.
Oximetry Overnight Pulse Oximetry/Invasive/Co-Oximeter/Hemoximeter/Accurate Measurements - more accurate measures COHb, O2Hb, and other non-functional hemoglobin (MetHb)
