Amplifier for Linear Recording of Oxygen Saturation and Dye Dilution Curves
An amplifier system has been designed for use with commercially available oximeter earpiece or cuvette and a direct recording oscillograph. Linear response to changes in oxygen saturation and in vivo dye concentrations are obtained with a rise time less than 0.5 sec., noise level and drift less than 2.5 per cent and accuracy comparable to Van Slyke-Neill method. Standard error of estimate between Van Slyke-Neill manometric and cuvette oximeter amplifier-recorder systems is ±2 per cent.
