hemoglobin oxygen saturation

hemoglobin oxygen saturation,

a quantitative measure of volume of oxygen per volume of blood, depending on the grams of hemoglobin per deciliter of blood. For example, two samples of blood, one with hemoglobin at 15 g/dl and the other at 7.5 g/dl, may both be 96% saturated with oxygen, but the hemoglobin oxygen saturation will be greater in the 15 g/dL sample.
