Simulators, Transducer Output, Pulse Oximetry
Definition : Transducer output simulators designed to mimic the electrical output of pulse oximetry monitor transducers. Tests may be performed at any preestablished heart rate values (e.g., 45, 60, 90 bpm) and at various saturation values. Pulse oximetry transducer simulators are mostly used to assess an oximetry monitor's ability to reproduce the calibration ratio of the absorption ratio curve (i.e., R curve) that the manufacturer designed into it. Some simulators include capabilities for testing the electrical integrity of oximeters probe (e.g., short and open circuits).
