Colleagues at NHS Improvement have issued a warning alert on the risk of harm from inappropriate placement of pulse oximeter probes.

If an oximeter probe intended for the finger is attached to the ear (or vice versa), or a probe intended for an adult is attached to a baby or a child (or vice versa), it can produce a reading up to 50% lower or 30% higher than the real value.
