PMID:  7619364     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
This article poses an argument supporting the position that it is important for nurses to become involved, at every level, in the development of the technology that they use. The advantages and disadvantages of one commonly used technological device in the intensive care nursery, the pulse oximeter, are identified. An example of how nursing intuition affected and was incorporated into the design of a new neonatal pulse oximeter is described.
