In vivo, light scattering by different tissues causes a deviation from theory; to compensate for this effect, empiric calibration from healthy volunteer studies is employed. Because these studies provided the majority of data within the 70% to 100% SpO2 range, the accuracy of most devices is greater (within 5% of in vitro oximetry) in the aforementioned range. Computers within the oximeters average calculations over several seconds’ worth of measurements; there may be a time lag before changes in desaturation are displayed.

A number of important factors can affect O2 binding to Hb. Conditions facilitating binding include alkalosis, hypocapnia (Bohr effect), hypothermia, low 2,3 diphosphoglycerate (2,3 DPG [ACD bank blood]), fetal Hb, and carboxyhemoglobin. Conditions facilitating O2 unloading include acidosis, hypercapnia, hyperthermia, and high 2,3 DPG (hypoxia, anemia, and thyrotoxicosis2). Only a small fraction of the total oxygen content of blood is physically dissolved. 3 ml O2 /100 ml blood at a PaO2 of 100 mm Hg).

D. Problems with gas delivery to anesthetized patients continue to cause morbidity and mortality. 1 Use of alarms to alert practitioners of potential or real problems is commonplace in anesthesia practice. 2,3 Combining these human elements with the ever-increasing complexity of modern anesthesia machines makes it imperative for health care providers to learn how to use their equipment properly to protect patients from injury. In understanding and using any alarm, health care providers must know exactly to which measurement the alarm is responding and what the variety of conditions are that can cause the alarm to operate.
