PURPOSE: The oxygen saturation readouts from a pulse oximeter (Radical-7®; Masimo, Inc., Irvine, CA) and a Point-of-Care analyzer (i-STAT®; Abbott Laboratories, Princeton, NJ) were observed to disagree appreciably on a patient who presented with severe alkalemia. This prompted us to undertake an accuracy analysis of these two instruments.
