Arterial oxygen saturation, also referred to as saturation, is an indicator for the amount of oxygen bound to the hemoglobin in the red blood cells of the arteries. The measurement is usually carried out as a transcutaneous measurement with a blood oxygen monitor or pulse oximeter. The saturation level is expressed as a percentage and should be over 95% in healthy people.


Measuring and monitoring oxygen saturation is done to monitor the oxygenation, or the amount of bound oxygen in the arterial blood.
This HCIM concerns the peripherally measured oxygen saturation (SpO2). For the oxygen saturation measured as a blood-gas measurement (SaO2), the HCIM LaboratoryTestResults must be used.

Type Id Concept Card. Definition DefinitionCode Reference
Block.png NL-CM:12.10.1 Arrowdown.pngO2Saturation Root concept of the O2Saturation information model. This root concept contains all data elements of the O2Saturation information model.
250554003 Measurement of oxygen saturation at periphery
PQ.png NL-CM:12.10.2 Arrowright.pngSpO2Value 1 The element contains the value of the indirect, peripheral measured O2 saturation.

The O2 saturation gives a percentage expressing the extent to which the blood’s hemoglobin is saturated with oxygen, the ratio of oxygen-saturated hemoglobin to hemoglobin. The measurement is done in places where sufficient light can get through the skin, such as a finger, toe or earlobe.

Technical specifications in HL7v3 CDA and HL7 FHIR

To exchange information based on health and care information models, additional, more technical specifications are required.
Not every environment can handle the same technical specifications. For this reason, there are several types of technical specifications:

  • HL7® version 3 CDA compatible specifications, available through the Nictiz ART-DECOR® environment Artdecor.jpg
  • HL7® FHIR® compatible specifications, available through the Nictiz environment on the Simplifier FHIR Fhir.png
