Use of pulse oximeter for surgical cases

11 March, 2019

I note the importance of using patient monitor (pulse oximeter: oxygen & pulse rate) in rural/suburban medical practice in low income countries. I will like to know if there are experience regarding surgical cases and usage of patient monitor vis a vis surgical outcome in low income countries.
