Abstract

BACKGROUND:: The manual collection and charting of traditional vital signs data in inpatient populations have been shown to be inaccurate when compared with true physiologic values. This issue has not been examined with respect to oxygen saturation data despite the increased use of this measurement in systems designed to assess the risk of patient deterioration. Of particular note are the lack of available data examining the accuracy of oxygen saturation charting in a particularly vulnerable group of patients who have prolonged oxygen desaturations (mean SpO2
