Problem 3 [30 points]: Compare the Clark electrode with the pulse oximeter optical system for measurement of oxygen saturation in the bloodstream. Explain the experimental setup and operation in detail for both systems. Discuss the advantages and limitations of both approaches, and give examples of applications in bioengineering where one is more preferred than the other. Grading Scheme Describe the following for each measurement device: setup ( +3 points ) operation ( +3 points ) advantages (at least 2, +3 points ) limitations (at least 2, +3 points ) applications (at least 2, +3 points ) ( 3 points × 5 descriptions × 2 measurement devices = 30 points total ) Clark Electrode setup o see Webster pp. 457-461, and 482-484 for figures and setup description o calibration performed by setting meter to zero when a CO 2 /N 2 mixture is slowly bubbled through the specimen chamber and obtaining a reading with a O 2 /CO 2 /N 2 mixture where the O 2 content is known operation
