Pretty accurate in my experience - the problem may be in how this single value is interpreted in the context of the whole clinical picture:

Effect of Oxygen Desaturations on Subsequent Medical Visits in Infants Discharged From the Emergency Department With Bronchiolitis.
Principi T, Coates AL, Parkin PC, Stephens D, DaSilva Z, Schuh S.
JAMA Pediatr. 2016 Jun 1;170(6):602-8. doi: 10.1001/jamapediatrics.2016.0114.

Effect of oximetry on hospitalization in bronchiolitis: a randomized clinical trial.
Schuh S, Freedman S, Coates A, Allen U, Parkin PC, Stephens D, Ungar W, DaSilva Z, Willan AR.
JAMA. 2014 Aug 20;312(7):712-8. doi: 10.1001/jama.2014.8637.
