Hemodynamic responses to oxygen breathing in children with severe anemia.


Hemodynamic responses to 100% oxygen inhalation were examined in seven anemic children (hemoglobin 1.9 to 3.8 g/100 ml blood; hematocrit 9 to 14%). During air breathing mean values for cardiac index were 7.71 L/min/m2, for heart rate 129/min, for stroke index 61.7 ml/m2, and for systemic vascular resistance 11.5 R.U. Oxygen administration significantly… (More)
