1. In this meta-analysis, there was no significant difference between lower and higher oxygen saturation targets on a primary composite of mortality or major disability at a corrected age of 18-24 months for infants born extremely preterm. 2. Lower oxygen targets were associated with increased mortality and necrotizing enterocolitis while...
1. Among infants with mild to moderate bronchiolitis presenting to the emergency department (ED), artificially elevating pulse oximetry readings reduced hospitalizations significantly compared to infants with unaltered pulse oximetry readings.  2. The length of ED stay, supplemental oxygen use in the ED, physician level of agreement with discharge from ED...
Image: PD 1. Pulse oximetry (SpO2), on average, overestimated oxygen saturation as measured by arterial blood gas CO-oximetry (SaO2) in critically ill children on full ventilator support with SpO2 below 97%. 2.  SpO2 showed variable bias and precision dependent on SpO­2­­­ measurement, with inferior performance in SpO2 ranges below 91% compared...
Image: PD/CDC 1. Extremely preterm infants assigned to a lower target oxygenation range of 85% to 89%, compared to 91% to 95%, showed no increased death or disability at 18 months.  2. Extremely premature infants in the lower target oxygenation cohort also did not have increased retinopathy of prematurity or brain...
