Arterial oxygen saturation, also referred to as saturation, is an indicator for the amount of oxygen bound to the hemoglobin in the red blood cells of the arteries. The measurement is usually carried out as a transcutaneous measurement with a blood oxygen monitor or pulse oximeter. The saturation level is expressed as a percentage and should be over 95% in healthy people.
Measuring and monitoring oxygen saturation is done to monitor the oxygenation, or the amount of bound oxygen in the arterial blood.
|Definition||Root concept of the O2Saturation information model. This root concept contains all data elements of the O2Saturation information model.|
|Definition||Unique id for the element within a resource (for internal references). This may be any string value that does not contain spaces.|
|Definition||May be used to represent additional information that is not part of the basic definition of the element. To make the use of extensions safe and manageable, there is a strict set of governance applied to the definition and use of extensions. Though any implementer can define an extension, there is a set of requirements that SHALL be met as part of the definition of the extension.|
|Alias||extensions, user content|
There can be no stigma associated with the use of extensions by any application, project, or standard - regardless of the institution or jurisdiction that uses or defines the extensions. The use of extensions is what allows the FHIR specification to retain a core level of simplicity for everyone.
|Slicing||Unordered, Open, by url(Value)|
|Definition||The element contains the value of the indirect, peripheral measured O2 saturation. The O2 saturation gives a percentage expressing the extent to which the blood’s hemoglobin is saturated with oxygen, the ratio of oxygen-saturated hemoglobin to hemoglobin. The measurement is done in places where sufficient light can get through the skin, such as a finger, toe or earlobe.|
The context of use may frequently define what kind of quantity this is and therefore what kind of units can be used. The context of use may also restrict the values for the comparator.
|Definition||The moment (date and time) of the SpO2 measurement.|
|Definition||Comment on the saturation measurement.|
Note that FHIR strings SHALL NOT exceed 1MB in size
|Definition||Indication stating whether the measurement was done in a situation in which extra oxygen was administered.|
