A proper oxygen prescription must specify the percentage of oxygen (FiO2) to be delivered, target saturation range (SpO2), flow in liters/min, source of oxygen, the method of delivery, monitoring parameters (ABGs/Pulse oximetry) and signature of the doctor or prescriber.
Throughout his ICU stay, he required high FiO2 ranging between 70%-100% most of the time.
* Post extubation care includes face tent with FIO2 10L/min, frequent secretion suctioning, proper positioning with chest physiotherapy, nebulizer with bronchodilators, (if needed), continuous GCS assessment, O2 saturation and ABG monitoring.
In this scenario, the question can shift from "Who had VAP?" to "Who is likely to get it, and how can we intervene to try to improve outcomes?" Being able to pinpoint which patients have had two days of PEEP and/or FiO2 stability followed by worsening oxygenation provides actionable intelligence that clinicians can use to pinpoint which patients need intervention.
On physical examination he presented dehydrated, pale, sweaty, tachypneic with O2 Saturation: 84% (FiO2: 0.6), signs of poor peripheral perfusion.
Her P/F ratio was 78 on 100% FiO2. I collaborated with OB/pharmacy/infectious disease/surgery to evaluate for Xigris administration and to have a PA catheter inserted to help guide DO/VO evaluation.
Tenders are invited for Air - oxygen blender with fio2 control-4 nos.
Despite continued management, the patient required increasing positive end expiratory pressure (PEEP) and fraction of inspired oxygen (FiO2) up to 14 and 100%, respectively.
Patients in Group I were ventilated throughout the CPB duration using 2ml/kg tidal volume at a respiratory rate of 15/min with FiO2 of 0.5 and positive end-expiratory pressure (PEEP) of 3cmH2O.
Due to hypercarbic respiratory acidosis, tachypnea, and hypoxia, she was immediately placed on noninvasive positive pressure ventilation (NIPPV) (Philips Respironics V60) with the following settings: inspiratory positive airway pressure (IPAP) of 14 cm H2O, expiratory positive airway pressure (EPAP) of 12 cm H2O, respiratory rate of 15, and FiO2 of 100%.
Despite high ventilator settings, 100% fractional concentration of inspired oxygen (FiO2), and 80 ppm iNO, his pulse oximetry saturation remained in 70-80%.
To avoid pulmonary hypertension crisis we used prolonged ventilation with high FiO2, good sedation and pain management and anti-pulmonary hypertension medications like phosphodiesterase inhibitors (milrinone).
