Test results were compared to patients' previous three-week screening and baseline data (their current therapies) as the placebo control for each variable including all their lung functions, FEV-1, FVC, PEF, FEV-1/FVC ratios, SaO2, nitric oxide, coughing rates and nasal inflammation.
Table 2 shows the values of HR, MAP, Ppeak and plateau inspiratory pressure (Pplateau), end-tidal CO2 and SaO2 recorded at three time intervals.
A diagnosis of respiratory failure was made after the determination of arterial oxygen pressure (PaO2) level <60 mmHg or arterial oxygen saturation (SaO2) <90% when breathing room air, with or without elevation of arterial PCO2.
The vital signs, CVP, SaO2, and urine of the patients were closely monitored [18, 19].
As independent variables, we included clinically relevant variables: age, gender, BMI, ESS, smoking history, AHI, oxygen desaturation index (ODI), AI, mean and minimum Sa[O.sub.2], and sleep time spent with SaO2 less than 90% (TST90).
He had a fever of 37.6[degrees]C and a room air SaO2 of 95%.
[13] La terapia con oxigeno se recomienda en pacientes con hipoxemia (SaO2 <90%) La ventilacion no invasiva se puede utilizar en los casos mas graves, como aquellos que se presentan con edema pulmonar cardiogenico.
His pulse was 122/min, blood pressure was 106/70 mmHg, and SaO2 came down to 72%.
Decreases in PaO2 rarely exceed 10 mmHg, and the PaO2 values tend to be on the flat portion of the oxyhemoglobin curve, so that drops in arterial oxygen saturation (SaO2) are minimized.
The patient was febrile (38.4[degrees]), blood pressure was 142/88 mmHg, heart rate was 103/minute, and SaO2 was 98%.
