    Cyanosis Threshold

    Within the SimNewB graphic user interface there is an option under the SPO2 settings to adjust the cyanosis threshold. (Found underneath the setting to adjust the SPO2 value) What does this mean? What is is utilized for? How do you implement it in a scenario?

    I am not a neonatal expert, but that is to simulate chd babies who may have cyanosis with higher SpO2 levels than normal babies would.
