The small device with a big impact on health equity

This webinar is on-demand and can be viewed at your convenience. 

Pulse oximetry technology is the most prevalent patient monitoring technology used to inform patient care around the globe. Most recently, pulse oximetry has been brought into the spotlight for its instrumental role in health equity. Various skin tone scales, which have been relied upon by experts to gauge skin color for pulse oximeter measurements, have come under scrutiny for not properly representing an accurate range of human skin tones.

Across the healthcare industry, organizations like the FDA and ISO, manufacturers such as Medtronic, scientists, patients, local communities, and healthcare practitioners, have come together to improve pulse oximeters for all patients. In this on-demand webinar, experts from Medtronic, Harvard, and Wake Forest discuss new research and guidelines to close the gap and improve outcomes for patients.

Watch now to learn:
  • How previous guidelines for pulse oximeters fall short
  • What to expect from new pulse oximeter standards
  • How a new measurement can yield better results for patients
