Conclusion: The measurement of pre-and post-ductal oxygen saturation by pulse oximetry was an effective screening tool for the detection of critical congenital heart defects in newborns.
Additionally, the regional oximetry may help clinicians monitor cerebral oxygenation in situations in which pulse oximetry alone may not be fully indicative of the oxygen in the brain due to various factors, such as the type of clinical procedure being performed, concluded the company.
The contract which covers a three-year supply, possibly renewable for a further 24 months, divided into 2 lots, of sensors for pulse oximetry and transcutaneous oximetry and related consumables for free loan.
They determined that the overall sensitivity for pulse oximetry screening for detection of critical congenital heart defects was 76.
When pulse oximetry, clinical examination and antenatal obstetric scanning are combined, the percentage of infants detected is more than 90 per cent.
We did not find any study regarding the validity of pulse oximetry as a bedside monitoring in the assessment of neonates with birth weight lower than 1500 grams with RDS.
TechNavio's analysts forecast the Global Pulse Oximetry market to grow at a CAGR of 5.
Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), congenital heart defects affect up to 9 of every 1,000 live births, one quarter of which could be detected and potentially treated by measuring blood-oxygen saturation with Measure-through Motion and Low Perfusion Pulse Oximetry -- a quick, noninvasive, and inexpensive test that helps clinicians screen for potential CCHD that may signal the need for additional testing before a newborn leaves the hospital.
If the pulse oximetry testing was mandatory and carried out automatically at birth, so many tiny lives would be saved.
2002) found that 81% of cases of CCHD are discernable using pulse oximetry readings in a lower-extremity with a cutoff saturation of 95%.
In this observational study arterial oxygen saturation in the right hand and right foot of each infant was recorded by pulse oximetry immediately after birth and continuously within the first 60 min of life.
