Use and Application of the Cuvette Densitometer as an Oximeter
A method has been developed for the continuous recording of oxygen saturation in blood by the use of a cuvette densitometer. The device consists of a light source, a cuvette through which the blood flows and a photosensitive element. It is simple to operate and has an acceptable sensitivity and stability. The instrument is applicable to a number of investigative problems.
