Description: In emergency medical service, in intensive care unit and anaesthesia oxygenation is monitored with pulse oximetry apparatus. Pulse oximetry probe is usually attached to the finger, toe or earlobe. To the best of our knowledge this is the first case report describing the occurrence of a pressure ulcer after finger pulse oximetry measurement.
Description: Sowohl in der Notfall- und Intensivmedizin als auch in der Anästhesie wird die Sauerstoffsättigung des Blutes mit Pulsoxymetern ermittelt. Diese Pulsoxymeter werden üblicherweise an den Fingern, den Zehen oder dem Ohrläppchen angebracht. Wir beschreiben einen Fall, bei dem es nach Anlage eines Fingerclip-Pulsoxymeters zur Ausbildung eines operationsbedürftigen Druckulkus kam.
