Chapter 4: Oxygen Saturation

Finding the Error Activity 1: Pulse Oximetry – Feedback

In the film clip 4.1, the healthcare provider did not confirm the accuracy of the pulse displayed on the pulse oximeter with the radial pulse. Healthcare providers always assess the radial pulse and ensure that it coincides with the pulse displayed on the oximeter to ensure the accuracy of the oxygen saturation level.
