Pulse oximetry is a non-invasive method used to determine the patient’s blood oxygen level. By placing a probe on the patient’s fingertip the nurse or therapist is able to assess the patients cardio-pulmonary status and report back to the patient’s physician to determine if any changes are needed in treatment regime. Often times a change in treatment can be facilitated at the patient’s home and may prevent a trip to the emergency room or hospitalization.
