 [def´ĭ-sit]
a lack or deficiency.

oxygen deficit a lack of oxygen, as in hypoxia, anoxia, or insufficient oxygen delivery in comparison to oxygen consumption.
pulse deficit the difference between the apical pulse and the radial pulse, obtained by having one person count the apical pulse as heard through a stethoscope over the heart and a second person count the radial pulse at the same time.
 Assessing the apical-radial pulse to identify a pulse deficit. From Lammon et al., 1995.
reversible ischemic neurologic deficit a type of cerebral infarction whose clinical course lasts longer than 24 hours but less than 72 hours; brain imaging usually reveals an infarct. See also stroke syndrome.
self care deficit any of a group of nursing diagnoses approved by the North American Nursing Diagnosis Association, defined as impaired ability to perform basic self care (activities of daily living) in the areas of feeding, bathing/hygiene, dressing/grooming, and toileting. Related factors include diminished strength and endurance, pain or discomfort, impaired mentation, neuromuscular disorder, depression, and anxiety. The defining characteristics for each functional level are readily observed and graded on a scale of 0 to 4. The suggested code for functional level classification is as follows: 0, Completely independent; 1, Requires use of equipment or device; 2, Requires help from another person for assistance, supervision, or teaching; 3, Requires help from another person and equipment or device; 4, Dependent; does not participate in activity.
self care deficit, bathing/hygiene a nursing diagnosis defined as impaired ability to perform or complete bathing/hygiene activities for oneself; see self care deficit.
self care deficit, dressing/grooming a nursing diagnosis defined as impaired ability to perform or complete dressing and grooming activities for oneself; see self care deficit.
self care deficit, feeding a nursing diagnosis defined as impaired ability to perform or complete feeding activities; see self care deficit.
self care deficit, toileting a nursing diagnosis defined as impaired ability to perform or complete one's own toileting activities; see self care deficit.
visual deficit partial or complete blindness; see communication enhancement: visual deficit.

ox·y·gen def·i·cit

the difference between oxygen uptake of the body during early stages of exercise and during a similar duration in a steady state of exercise; sometimes considered as the formation of the oxygen debt.

ox·y·gen def·i·cit

(ok'si-jĕn def'i-sit)
The difference between oxygen uptake of the body during early stages of exercise and during a similar duration in a steady state of exercise; sometimes considered as the formation of the oxygen debt.

oxygen deficit

shortfall of oxygen consumed during activity below that required to supply all necessary energy aerobically. Postexercise restoration of this deficit constitutes part, but not all, of the oxygen debt.

deficit

However, now with Masimo Rainbow SET Pulse CO-Oximetry, SpHb and SpO2 can be used together to provide clinicians with the first-and-only technology for real-time and noninvasive oxygen content (SpOC(TM)) monitoring, providing a more complete picture of oxygenation status and potentially allowing earlier indication of when a patient crosses the threshold into a critical oxygen deficit.
