Abstract:

Pulse oximetry measures the amount of oxygen (SpO2) carried by the hemoglobin molecules in the blood. Normal values range from 95-100 percent. Disease processes affecting perfusion and circulation can contribute to lowered SpO2. This literature review focuses on the effect of nail polish on the accuracy of pulse oximetry readings.
