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.


All planned appointments, referrals, treatments and diagnostic procedures, open orders and orders of which the results are not yet known that are relevant to the patient’s care may be included. Clinical reminders can also be included here. These are postponed orders that are not yet active. (For example: please note! patient still needs a booster vaccination in x weeks; or please note! check the oral mucosa next time).
