This is a prospective observational study designed to quantify and understand errors in pulse oximetry in hospitalized patients in relation to their skin pigmentation. It is driven by three recent retrospective studies showing missed diagnosis of hypoxemia in patients across a spectrum of skin pigmentation, defined as blood SaO2 <90% when their pulse oximeter reads 92% or greater.
