Oxygen saturation.
Methodology:
Optical
Synonyms:
OXYGEN SATURATION, VENOUS
O2 SAT MEASURED VENOUS
Clinical significance:
Oxygen saturation (or hemoglobin oxygen saturation) is a percentage of the volume of oxygen carried to the maximum volume that can be carried by hemoglobin for a whole blood specimen. It is useful for evaluating the amount of oxygen actually available for tissue perfusion and can be used to determine the effectiveness of oxygen therapy.
