Pulse Oximetry – Optimising its use in Practice


eCPD Tutorial – unlimited lifetime access!



Course Summary

This 30 minute eCPD tutorial aims to discuss the pulse oximeter and its use in small animal practice. We discuss how the monitors work and how we can use the information we are given, including the limitations and errors that may occur.


We discuss the advantages of using pulse oximeters in other settings, other than just during anaesthesia and finish off by going through methods of oxygen supplementation in our patients.
