Descriptor English: Oxygen Saturation
Descriptor Spanish: Saturación de Oxígeno
Descriptor saturación de oxígeno
Entry term(s) SpO2
niveles de oxígeno en la sangre
saturación de oxígeno periférico
Scope note: Grado en el que la hemoglobina está saturada con OXÍGENO medido generalmente en sangre arterial. Puede medirse mediante diversos métodos (por ejemplo, pulsioxímetro, gasometría sanguínea). Un nivel bajo de saturación de oxígeno en la sangre indica un trastorno denominado HIPOXEMIA.
