Season 1 generally

Corrected entry: When Hopper's daughter is dying, the staff says that the pulse oximeter is dropping. Pulse oximeters were not commercialized until 1981/1983 and not in widespread use until at least the mid 1980's.


Correction: The reason you wrote 1981/1983 is because 2 different companies developed them. Biox first developed them in 1981 and expanded their marketing in 1982. Just because something isn't widespread doesn't mean it's not available or in use at a local hospital, especially for a fictional town. The first season begins in November 1983, so after the pulse oximeters were commercially available.
