oxygen sTaturations

  1. 19
    This is just a pet peeve rant post. But why do some people who should have a basic education on this call it "oxygen stats/ staturations". Drives me crazy. Ive seen people write it and say it. Its sat!!! Saturation!

    Ok end rant.

    I've never heard staturation...that's pretty pitiful. Amniodarone is the one that drives me bananas.

    How about those that say the patient is here for an exasperation of their asthma? It is EXACERBATION people. I was working with a nurse who has been a nurse longer than I have been alive saying that in report.

    Or the ACLS INSTRUCTOR that calls it the "defibulator"...like nails on a chalkboard!!!
