  • Causa
    An ecri member hospital reported a case in which the patient had a skin lesion caused by a disposable oximetry sensor. a large section of the insulation that is normally placed on the led, light emitting diode, part of the sensor, has been ripped or plucked off, causing contact of the sensor electrical connection with the patient's skin. investigations of ecri regarding this incident revealed that the burn was more electrochemical than thermal, and was caused by a low voltage (voltage), direct electrolyte current in the tissue, which occurred in the exposed location with the electrical connection.
  • Acción
    Electrochemical burns from the Pulse Oximetry Sensor can be prevented by not exposing the damaged electrical connection of the sensor to contact with the patient's skin. ECRI recommends the following to prevent the occurrence of such burns: (1) Alert the hospital staff of this problem and our alerts. (2) Ensure that the clinical protocol includes a check of the integrity of all pulse oximetry sensors (both disposable and reusable) before they are placed in the patient and when they are removed to a new location. Especially, inspect the sensor and sensor cable for cracks and cracks in insulation, electrical connection or wiring, and for any other damage. Only reuse the disposable sensor in the same patient according to the directions of use of the sensor supplier. (3) Instruct the staff to follow the provider's instructions when checking the integrity of the skin lying under the sensor and when changing the sensor location. By doing this, it will certainly help, prevent any injury, or if it occurs, to be treated immediately. (4) Inform personnel not to use damaged sensors or cables. The damaged sensor or cable must be clearly labeled "damaged" and sent to clinical engineering for evaluation and tracking of occurrences associated with health products.
