  • To find out whether Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia (PCP) can be detected while still in an early phase by the degree of exercise-induced oxygen desaturation, arterial oxygen saturation was measured by continuous pulse oximetry in patients positive for antibody to the human immunodeficiency virus and clinically suspected of having PCP, in patients with other chest diseases, and in controls. Among patients with proven PCP 94% of those with low arterial oxygen pressures (PaO2) showed desaturation… CONTINUE READING
