Revision History


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.

Information model

Refer to the legend page for more information about the used types and data types

rootconcept O2Saturation
Definition Root concept of the O2Saturation building block. This root concept contains all data elements of the O2Saturation building block.
Type Zib.png
data SpO2Value
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.
