Hasta el momento, el nuevo coronavirus trae consecuencias nefastas para la salud de la población mundial; el diagnóstico temprano de esta enfermedad juega un papel importante para el tratamiento temprano y así evitar que los pacientes lleguen a los centros hospitalarios para recibir oxígeno por medio de cánulas o intubación. Una de las herramientas importantes para la determinación y decisión para el diagnóstico y monitoreo temprano de COVID-19 es el pulsioxímetro. En esta revisión sistemática se corrobora que este dispositivo es muy importante para dicho fin.
