Hyperlipidæmia : a Cause of Decreased Oxygen Saturation

THE induction of hyperlipidæmia by the intravenous infusion of a fat emulsion in human beings produces a fall in arterial oxygen saturation. While the phenomena were observed earlier by Kuo1 in human beings and in dogs by Stutman2 and Cain3, the observations have not been extremely pursued nor has the mechanism of such a decrease in arterial oxygen… CONTINUE READING
