oxygen saturation

(redirected from O2 sat)

saturation

 [sach″er-a´shun]
the state of being saturated, or the act of saturating.
oxygen saturation the amount of oxygen bound to hemoglobin in the blood, expressed as a percentage of the maximal binding capacity.

oxygen saturation

sO2 The O2 concentration of blood expressed as a ratio of its total O2-carrying capacity; the OS is a measure of the utilization of O2 transport capacity; sO2 is ↑ at high altitude, hypocapnia, hypothermia, ↑ cardiac output, O2 therapy, PEEP–positive end-expiratory pressure ventilation, and respiratory alkalosis. sO2 is ↓ with AV shunting, carbon monoxide poisoning, congenital cardiac defects, emphysema, hypercapnia, hypoventilation, hypoxia, respiratory acidosis Ref range 95-98% arterial; 60-80% venous

(SaO2) (ok-si'jĕn sach'ŭr-ā'shŭn)
The percentage of oxygen-binding sites in blood that are combined with oxygen.

Results: Result shows that mean arterial O2 sat level increased at three stages namely before immediately after and 6 and 12 hrs after these two treatments (p = 0.001).
That is to say both venesection and wet cupping were effective on O2 sat. Results of a paired t-test showed that the mean
Does the patient have AF and the machine reading is false, is the BP really that high or low, is the O2 SAT probe really picking up a true SAT level on a peripherally shut down 80 year old?
