Scope note: Determinación de la saturación de oxígeno de la hemoglobina, tomando una muestra que se analiza con un oxímetro fotoeléctrico clásico o con electrodos colocados en un área translúcida del cuerpo humano como los dedos, los lóbulos de la oreja o un pliegue cutáneo. Incluye la monitorización no invasiva del oxígeno por oximetría de pulso.

Scope note: The determination of oxygen-hemoglobin saturation of blood either by withdrawing a sample and passing it through a classical photoelectric oximeter or by electrodes attached to some translucent part of the body like finger, earlobe, or skin fold. It includes non-invasive oxygen monitoring by pulse oximetry.
