The approximate measurement of heamoglobin saturation through the use of pulse oximetry has become an increasingly common practice in many areas of clinical medicine, such as anaesthesia, respiratory therapy, pediatrics and intensive care. This standard specifies minimum safety requirements based on parameters that are achievable within the limits of existing technology. This standard specifies requirements for the safety of pulse oximeters as defined in subclause 2.12 of this standard, intended for use in the approximate measurement of the saturation of human arterial haemoglobin, non-invasively. The field of application includes, but is not limited to : a) perioperative use; b) adult critical care application; c) paediatric and neonatal applications; d) general determination of saturation on hospitalised and non-hospitalised patients. Pulse oximeters intended for use in laboratory research applications and "bench" type oximeters that require a blood sample from the patient are outside the scope of this standard.
