RODRIGUEZ REYES, Oscar; RODRIGUEZ CARBALLOSA, Oscar Bernardo; MALBERTY GIRO, Judith e RIERA SANTIESTEBAN, Rolando. Level of arterial oxygen in patients with respiratory sepsis ventilated. MEDISAN [online]. 2009, vol.13, n.4, pp. 0-0. ISSN 1029-3019.
A descriptive and cross-sectional study was carried out at Intensive Care Unit of the "Dr Juan Bruno Zayas" Teaching General Hospital from Santiago de Cuba during 2006, in order to determine the level of arterial oxygen in patients with respiratory sepsis who had been ventilated. The used sources of information were medical records and results of arterial gasometry. In the three measurements of blood gases low significant values were found in the level of arterial oxygen (p <0,05), showing the significance of this indicator as useful tool to measure the state of arterial oxygenation in these patients.
