Overall only one-third of patients with an SpO2 value below 90% would exhibit an increase in respiratory rate. While pulse oximetry could be used as a screening tool for cardiopulmonary disease, there are no data to suggest that decisions based on SpO2 improve outcome over decisions based on respiratory rate. Titration of fractional inspired oxygen concentration Pulse oximetry can assist with titration of fractional inspired oxygen concentration (FIO2) in ventilator-dependent patients, although the appropriate SpO2 target depends on a patient’s pigmentation.
With the proliferation of pulse oximeters, episodic hypoxemia is detected much more commonly than previously suspected. By alerting the clinician to the presence of hypoxemia, pulse oximeters can lead to a more rapid treatment of serious hypoxemia and possibly avoid serious complication. Moreover, pulse oximetry can reduce arterial blood gas analysis and potentially decrease health care costs . Principles of pulse oximetry Pulse oximeters determine oxygen (O2) saturation by measuring light absorption of arterial blood at two specific wavelengths, 660 nm (red) and 940 nm (infrared) .

Am J Med 115:203–208 Andreas Bacher Effects of body temperature on blood gases Abstract Background: Changes in body temperature have important impact on measurements of blood gases. In blood gas analyzers the samples are always kept constant at a temperature of exactly 37C during the measurements, and therefore results are not correct if body temperature differs from 37C.
