Conservative Oxygen Therapy, Lower Mortality, but Larger Trials Needed

2016 05 Oct

A conservative protocol for oxygen therapy for intensive care patients led to lower ICU mortality, in a randomised controlled trial that was terminated early after difficulties in enrolment.The Normal Oxygenation Versus Hyperoxia in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) (OXYGEN-ICU)  trial  was conducted in one centre in Italy between March 2010 and October...

Study on Relationship Between Masimo’s ORI™& Arterial Partial Pressure of Oxygen During Surgery

2016 31 Mar

Masimo (NASDAQ: MASI) has announced that a new retrospective study reports the relationship between Masimo’s Oxygen Reserve Index (ORI™) and arterial partial pressure of oxygen (PaO2) during surgery. The study suggests that ORI may provide an advanced indication of impending desaturation in adults undergoing surgery based on trends in the relationship... Read more

Using Light To Examine Lungs Of Premature Babies

2016 23 Mar

Research from Lund University in Sweden suggests that in the future, tests to see how much premature air babies’ lungs contain as their lungs are not sufficiently developed could be done using laser light, which at present can only be done using X-rays. The researchers suggest that this method could also be be employed to measure oxygen among severely... Read more

Ventilators Differ in Their Characteristics, Performance

2014 27 Oct

Transportation of critically ill patients requiring mechanical ventilation requires clinical experience, an efficient device, and careful determination of gases and/or electrical resources. Emergency and transport ventilators (ETVs) should be technically accurate, and as autonomous as possible.ETVs have become increasingly sophisticated, offering features... Read more
