Thus, the hemoglobin in mixed venous blood is 95% – 25% = 70% saturated. This 70% oxygen saturation of venous blood represents an important reserve from which tissues can extract extra oxygen when compensating for decreased DO2. Below a critical value of DO 2 , however, compensation no longer occurs and evidence of tissue hypoxia occurs. , tissue hypoxia): A. Low cardiac output (stagnant or circulatory hypoxia). Even with a normal arterial oxygen content, circulatory failure can result Poor O2 delivery to tissue 90 pH Left shift pH Temp Right shift SaO2 (%) PaCO2 60 Temp PaCO2 Good O2 delivery to tissue 50 0 27 30 15 50 60 PaO2 (mm Hg) Figure 3–1.
Appropriately attached to the oxygen outlet, but without the oxygen flowmeter being turned on. • Attached to the neighboring medical air outlet. • Attached to the suction outlet. • On the floor. • Attached to an empty oxygen cylinder. Oxygen can be supplied via pipeline from a central gas supply to wall- or ceiling-mounted outlets, or from portable cylinders. Oxygen cylinders vary in size from the large tanks carried in ambulances to smaller, more portable tanks used for transport within a hospital or for individual patients.
Low flow devices such as nasal cannulae, simple face masks and nonrebreathing face masks deliver oxygen at less than the patient’s peak inspiratory flow rate. Inspired oxygen concentration will thus vary with the patient’s pattern of breathing. In contrast, high flow devices such as the Venturi face mask deliver oxygen at a rate in excess of the patient’s peak inspiratory flow rate, and allow for more precise titration of the inspired oxygen concentration. Nasal Cannulae Applied to the nostrils, nasal cannulae can be used to modestly increase the fractional inspired concentration of oxygen (FiO2).
