Monitors, Bedside, Physiologic, Neonatal
Definition : Physiologic monitors designed for continuous checking of vital physiologic parameters of newborns and infants. These monitors should include sensors with appropriate size and design for infant use; they may also include capabilities to assess hemoglobin oxygen saturation (SpO2) through transcutaneous sensors that measure both transcutaneous oxygen (tcPO2) and transcutaneous carbon dioxide (tcPCO2) saturation. Neonatal monitors are used for newborn and premature infants, especially those that are under critical care.
