sat·u·ra·tion in·dex

an indication of the relative concentration of hemoglobin in the red blood cells, calculated as: grams of hemoglobin per 100 mL (expressed as percentage of normal) ÷ hematocrit value (expressed as percentage of normal) = saturation index The normal index for adults and infants is 0.97 to 1.02; in primary and secondary anemia, the index is usually considerably less than 0.97.

saturation index

An obsolete value expressing the haemoglobin concentration in erythrocytes, obtained by dividing the patient:standard haemoglobin content ratio by the patient:standard haematocrit ratio.
