OBJECTIVE To investigate the relationship of markers of oxygenation, PaO2/FIO2 ratio, SpO2/FIO2 ratio, oxygenation index, oxygen saturation index, and dead space (end tidal alveolar dead space fraction) with mortality in children with acute hypoxemic respiratory failure. DESIGN Retrospective. SETTING Single-center tertiary care pediatric intensive care unit. PATIENTS Ninety-five mechanically ventilated children with a PaO2/FIO2 ratio <300 within 24 hrs of the initiation of mechanical… CONTINUE READING
