The Effect of Skin Pigmentation on Pulse Oximeter Accuracy

This in-person event aims to bring together leaders in the field of Pulse Oximetry from across the UK to highlight the importance of the topic, and provide brainstorming opportunities to work towards tackling the problem.

Organised by IPEM's Physiological Measurement SIG

Pulse oximetry is widely used across healthcare settings to measure blood oxygen saturation. Recent research indicates that the accuracy of pulse oximeters can differ between subjects of different ethnicities, caused by differences in skin pigmentation. This received widespread attention from scientists, politicians, and the media during the COVID pandemic, since it was thought to be a potential factor contributing to differences in outcomes between ethnicities.

This event aims to:

  • Highlight the importance of the topic
  • Inform about the topic
  • Provide networking and brainstorming opportunities to spark further work to tackle the problem

This event is aimed at Clinicians, Clinical Scientists, Clinical Technologists, Researchers in academia and industry, and Policy Makers, but is open to all with an interest in the field.

Abstract submissions are now closed.

The event will be held at Broadway House, Tothill Street, London SW1H 9NQ.

Bookings are currently open. Please follow the instructions on the 'Book Now' button.
