This article reviews the optical techniques applied to the determination of intravascular hemoglobin oxygen saturation as well as the noninvasive estimation of arterial and tissue saturation. Although in skeletal muscles and brain tissues myoglobin and cytochrome analyses have been demonstrated (F.F. Jobis et al., 1977; K. Kariman et al., 1983), their effects upon absorption and reflection spectra of tissues are small. Thus, this review is focused only upon measurement of hemoglobin saturation.<>
