Placement of finger oximeter on the ear: comparison with oxygen saturation values taken from the finger
This study evaluated how treatment decisions might be impacted by SpO2 values obtained using a finger probe placed on the pinna of the ear in a cohort of 46 patients receiving non-invasive ventilation compared with values obtained from a probe on the finger and the results of arterial blood gas (ABG) (SaO2) analysis. Bland-Altman analysis was performed to evaluate agreement between the methods. Finger probe saturation was not statistically different from SaO2, with a mean difference of -0.66% (P>0.05). Saturation from the ear was significantly different (-4.29%; P
