Trauma surgeons evaluated the use of the Spot check Pronto-7® Pulse CO-oximeter in 525 critically injured patients. Their study is believed to be the largest one of such a device, according to study authors. The tool is used for monitoring a patient’s blood level in physicians’ offices, and the authors say it may also save valuable minutes in medical decision-making for critically injured trauma patients.
