neonatal heat injury from pulse oxymeter probes

Recommended Posts

Hello,

How do you avoid neonatal heat burns when oxymeter probe is continously monitoring ?

Do you use any gauze pieces( like we use)?

Does it depend on the quality of the probe?

Your inputs are welcome

We use a special type of probes whish is soft rubber encircling the whole circumfrenc of the limp we almost never record this type of injury since we start useing it

We also change the probe every 4 hours - the more immature the infant, the more likely that there will be a burn.
