Unlike many low-cost oximeters, Nonin Medical's clinically proven PureSAT pulse oximetry technology uses pulse-by-pulse filtering to achieve accuracy in Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) patients who may be experiencing low pulse strength, poor circulation, labored breathing and frequent desaturations
," Eagle said.
Clinicians want to catch oxygen desaturations
as early as possible in this patient population, and they don't want false readings or false alarms.
Marked clinical improvement with regression of stridor was noted, and the patient was hemodynamically stable without any desaturations
or an objective increase in respiratory rate during propranolol treatment.
The researchers found a significant increase in apneic events, oxygen desaturations
and the number of arousals during sleep.
Are COPD patients with nocturnal REM sleep-related desaturations
more prone to developing chronic respiratory failure requiring long-term oxygen therapy?
We take issue with the description of the oxygen desaturations
reported in our studies as "clinically insignificant".
1c] values: the number of obstructive events in REM sleep and the number of oxygen desaturations
of 3% or greater during REM sleep.
However, what is not covered by these devices is whether the arrhythmias or ECG changes observed are associated with sleep-disordered breathing abnormalities or oxygen desaturations
Furthermore, severity of sleep apnea as measured by the apnea-hypopnea index, and the degree of oxygen desaturations
during rapid-eye-movement sleep, accounted for more than 90% of the variability in measures of glucose tolerance including hemoglobin [A.
She has begun to get worse both by the presence of upper respiratory tract secretions with consequential extra labouring of her breathing and, associated with that, oxygen desaturations
He was beginning to have more frequent and longer lasting desaturations
34] They discovered that the majority of jugular bulb oxygen desaturations
occurred within the first 48 hours of injury.
