As we all know, for newborns, hospitals usually check their ge spo2 sensor to ensure the health of each baby. In neonates, oxygen saturation monitoring can detect congenital heart disease. Some of these diseases may have obvious symptoms, others may not, but either way, they can lead to low oxygen saturation levels. Through ge spo2 sensor monitoring, we can do timely detection, timely intervention and treatment to improve the health of infants.
For premature infants or underweight infants, under the condition of oxygen therapy, continuous oxygen saturation monitoring can make the infant's oxygen saturation in the state of 91% to 95%, which can avoid the infant's long-term exposure to high oxygen saturation, resulting in retinopathy, bronchial dysplasia and other diseases.
1. The use of neonatal spo2 probe for oxygen saturation monitoring
Neonatal spo2 probe is an essential medical equipment for monitoring neonatal oxygen saturation. In the process of use, we must strictly follow the operating rules to avoid misreading.
(1) Neonatal ge spo2 sensor measurement position should be selected as the fleshy part of the palm of the baby's hand or foot, and the light-emitting part of the spo2 probe should be placed here.
(2) Put the receiving position of the probe on the back of the hand or foot.
(3) The photodetector and light emitter must be directly opposite to get an accurate reading.
(4) Attach the probe to the baby's right hand or foot using adhesive or foam tape as recommended by the manufacturer. It is not recommended to use tape to secure the probe placement.
2. Precautions for using the neonatal spo2 probe
If a disposable pulse oximeter probe is used, a brand new, clean probe should be used for each baby. If a reusable pulse probe is used, we need to sterilize the probe before use in each infant using the sterilizing tool recommended in the user manual. Because the probe can be contaminated with sebum or other substances during use, this may not only lead to errors in oxygen saturation readings, but also cause cross-infection.
The best place to measure oxygen saturation in infants is around the palms and feet. The probe used for neonatal oxygen saturation measurement has the corresponding specification of neonatal spo2 probe, which cannot be measured using an adult probe. When placing the sensor on the baby's skin, there should be no gap between the sensor and the skin. The two sides of the spo2 probe should be directly opposite each other. The probe must be fixed with foam tape so that the baby's movement during the measurement does not displace the probe and lead to inaccurate measurements.
Make sure the skin is clean and dry before placing the probe on the baby. Skin color and jaundice did not affect pulse oximetry. Movement, shaking and crying can affect the accuracy of the readings. Be sure to keep quiet and warm during measurements for the baby. If possible, parents are encouraged to participate in the measurement process to improve the comfort of the infant and to avoid the impact of crying on the data results. In addition, it is best to screen babies when they are awake. The compatibility and index of different pulse oximetro oximeters are different to ensure that the spo2 probe can correctly match the oximetro oximeter. If the baby needs to be monitored for a prolonged period of time, check and evaluate the placement of the probe at least every two hours to avoid skin irritation and burns.
