Sats monitor


Sats monitor

A Sats monitor is a machine that measures oxygen saturation levels. You might also hear the term “pulse oximeter”. A probe shines a light through a finger or toe. This measures how much oxygen your baby is getting. The top score is 100, but your nurse/doctor will explain what is an acceptable level for your baby. If they drop below then they might need some oxygen to help them. Sats probes don’t hurt, but you will find the nurses change the position of them on a regular basis.
