There’s no such thing as an SpO2 simulation! Why a primary calibration reference does not exist and how to properly measure SpO2 accuracy?
For the majority of human vital signs, simulation is a direct analog of the clinical signal. However for SPO2 simulation, no primary calibration exist. Simulation of oxygen saturation in humans, presents a challenge. Especially as each patient monitor manufacturer/patient monitor uses it’s “own R-Curve” to derive and display saturation.
Find out how functional SPO2 testers are dealing with these different “R-Curves” and how these testers properly measure SPO2 accuracy.
Testing of Medical Patient Monitors
Durable medical equipment is depended on for support of patient diagnosis and therapy, so it must be safe, effective, and reliable; also regular testing is required. If you are being asked to perform multiple tests on patient monitor devices, meet below the ProSim 8 Vital Signs Patient Simulator. Along with time-saving features like standardized test templates, stay-connected ECG posts, and barcode scanning, the ProSim 8 is a single portable unit, which can automate testing of a broad range of physiological parameters on patient monitors.
