STUDY OBJECTIVE To determine if the normobaric oxygen paradox (NOP) was effective in increasing reticulocyte count and reducing postoperative requirements for allogeneic red blood cell transfusion after traumatic hip surgery. DESIGN Prospective, randomized, double blinded, multi-center study. SETTING Surgical wards of two academic hospitals. PATIENTS 85 ASA physical status 1 and 2 patients undergoing surgery for traumatic hip fracture. INTERVENTIONS Patients were randomly assigned to… CONTINUE READING
