What was on Carter's forehead?

I noticed that when Carter was in surgery in "AITF", there was a small device with a red light attached to his forehead. Can anyone tell me what that's for?

Hi Jennifer. I believe that was a pulse/ox monitor, similar to the ones you would see on the finger. It monitors oxygen saturation on the blood.
