    Purpose: Pulse oximetry (SpO) measured at finger site via transmission mode may fail in situations of hypoperfusion. Forehead sensors using reflectance technology might be useful in these circumstances. We hypothesized that reflectance SpO would be more accurate than finger SpO in patients with...
