Two new single-patient-use pulse oximetry sensors used primarily for infant and neonatal patients have been cleared by the FDA.

Philips’ new Sp02 disposable sensors are designed to provide greater comfort while maintaining a secure fit, using soft foam material and special adhesives for patients with sensitive skin. These sensors complement the company’s line of reusable and disposable sensors — giving hospitals a choice of sensors to meet their clinical requirements.

The sensors measure blood-oxygen saturation, and the new Infant disposable sensor can be used on patients weighing 3 to 10 kg.
