One study suggested that PaO2 typically increases about 3 mmHg for each 1-percent increase in FIO2.
Since the patient is breathing supplemental oxygen the FIO2 must be higher than 0.
This regimen generally begins with oxygen therapy via an air-entrainment mask at an FIO2 of 0.
Helps to eliminate both stress and physiological compromise to the patient during the cleaning (or maintenance) of the catheter since no PEEP, FiO2 or Vt will be lost as the saline is suctioned through the catheter.
PIO2 = (PB - PH2O) FIO2 160 mm Hg = (760 mm Hg - 0 mm Hg) x 0.
They also perceive changes in their practice using this new technology, specifically in ease of management/titration of FiO2 levels.
