Continuous monitoring of gas exchange and oxygen use with dual oximetry.

Abstract

The utility of integrated pulse and pulmonary artery oximetry, known as dual oximetry, was evaluated by monitoring 10 critically ill surgical patients for a total of 208 patient hours. The ventilation-perfusion index (VQI), an estimate of venous admixture, and the oxygen extraction index (O2EI), an estimate of tissue oxygen utilization coefficient… (More)
