Correlation Between PaO2/FIO2 and Peripheral Capillary Oxygenation/FIO2 in Burned Children With Smoke Inhalation Injury

Conclusions: PaO2/FIO2 and peripheral capillary oxygenation/FIO2 strongly correlate in burned children with smoke inhalation injury, with a peripheral capillary oxygenation of less than 92% providing the strongest correlation. Thus, peripheral capillary oxygenation/FIO2 ratio may be able to serve as surrogate for PaO2/FIO2, especially when titrating FIO2 to achieve a peripheral capillary oxygenation of 90–95% (i.e., in the acute respiratory distress syndrome range).

Macular holes can cause blurry and distorted vision, and t...

This trend is particularly worrisome for cancer patients because this group has a higher suicide risk than the general public. For mesothelioma patients and the people who care for them, one part of this picture deser...
