507 Possible Causes for Oximeters, Pulse

Show results in: Español

  • Appendicitis

    Ninety-four children diagnosed with acute appendicitis were monitored with a CipherOx CRI M1 pulse oximeter (Flashback Technologies Inc., Boulder, CO).[] His leg pain was resolved with normal palpable pulse. One week later, his kidney function worsened. Thus, Lasix and minoxidil were stopped.[] General physical examination revealed pulse of 96/min. and fever of 99.5 degrees Fahrenheit.[]

  • Pneumonia

    The nurses may suction her nose regularly and keep an eye on her blood oxygen levels with an oximeter.[] Although corticosteroid pulse therapy was initiated, the patient died of respiratory failure on day 14.[] He developed interstitial pneumonia, which did not respond to combination therapy with methylprednisolone pulse therapy, cyclophosphamide, and cyclosporine.[]

  • Acute Bronchitis

    Oxygen saturation percentage will be measured with a pulse oximeter. Chest x-ray may be done to rule out the presence of pneumonia. Blood tests may be performed.[] Clinically important vital signs were frequently not recorded; temperature was missing from 34% of charts and pulse from 50% of charts.[] An oximeter is a small machine that measures the amount of oxygen in the blood.[]

  • Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis

    Noninvasive oxygen measurements are made with a pulse oximeter (these cost about 40- 100 at various stores and on-line).[] Clinical data, laboratory data, radiographic findings, treatment, and time from the onset of symptoms to the initiation of corticosteroid pulse therapy, i.e. symptom duration[] An EKG (electrocardiogram) checks your heart rate, a blood pressure cuff checks your blood pressure, and a pulse oximeter shows how much oxygen is in your blood.[]

  • Pulsus Paradoxus

    The predictor variable, PEP, was measured using a dedicated pulse oximeter and waveform analysis program.[] We defined the altered pulse oximetry baseline tracing as the respiratory waveform variation (RWV).[] Pulsus paradoxus estimated by dynamic change in area under the oximeter plethysmograph waveform (PEP) might provide a measure of acute asthma severity.[]

  • Enterovirus Infection

    Limb pulse oximeter was around 85%. During the first day of hospitalization, the newborn had one febrile episode.[] The outcome on intravenous pulse methylprednisolone was good.[] Limb pulse oximeter was around 85%. During the first day of hospitalization, the newborn had one febrile episode.[]

  • Flutamide

    We report a patient receiving flutamide therapy who developed cyanosis, dyspnoea and anaemia, initially attributed to marked methaemoglobinaemia by the CO-Oximeter method.[] Pulse oximery (Nellcor, Pleasanton, CA) during supplemental oxygen breathing via nasal prongs revealed pulse oximetry (Sp O 2 ) 95-96%: his skin and mucous membrane discoloration[] Results: Treatment with flutamide resulted in a decrease in LH pulse amplitude and an increase in LH-pulse frequency.[]

  • Benzocaine

    Methemoglobinemia should be suspected in cases where decreased pulse oximeter readings develop in patients who have received benzocaine preoperatively.[] O2 saturation measured by pulse oximetry ranged from 83% to 87% on O2 by nasal prongs and 100% O2 by a nonrebreathing mask.[] Local benzocaine was sprayed to numb the patient's airway for a total time of one second, fifteen minutes later SpO2 decreased to 85% on the pulse oximeter.[]

  • Cyanotic Congenital Heart Disease

    The performance of the Masimo SET LNCS Neo pulse oximeter is poor when arterial oxyhaemoglobin saturations are below 75%.[] Pulse oximetry screening is useful in detecting cyanotic heart diseases in sick newborns.[] Oxygen saturation determinations by pulsed oximeter had been in the range of 84% to 88%. On one occasion, when the child was very upset, a reading of 78% was observed.[]

  • Sulfhemoglobinemia

    Although the CO-oximeters indicated the presence of sulfhemoglobin (SulfHb), the results were not quantitative.[] […] of an abnormal hemoglobin species interfering with the pulse oximeter.[] We used an ABL 520 blood gas–CO-oximeter combination analyzer and an OSM3 CO-oximeter (both from Radiometer, Westlake, OH).[]
