nCPAP and HFNC are also recommended in the initial resuscitation of children with respiratory compromise or hypoxaemia
associated with sepsis or septic shock.
Majority of non-survivors had deranged coagulation profile and hypoxaemia
Data obtained from anaesthesia records included gender, age, height, weight, previous operations, alcohol and smoking habits, obesity (body mass index >30 kg [m.sup.-2]), concomitant diseases, complications, such as hypotension during operation (systolic blood pressure < 90 mmHg), bradycardia (50 beats [min.sup.-1]), hypoxaemia
(Sp[O.sub.2] <90%), hypothermia (esophagus temperature <35[degrees]C), and thrombocytopenia (<50,000 [micro]L), amount of supplied fluid, and duration of operation.
 In many middle- to low-income countries with resource limitations, the number of child deaths resulting from severe pneumonia (related to hypoxaemia
and respiratory failure) remains high despite implementation of international and local guidelines.
Acute circulatory failure is caused by severe myocardial ischaemia, arrhythmias with poor prognosis, hypoxaemia
due to pulmonary or respiratory tract injury, haemorrhagic shock and acid-base and electrolyte disorders.
Cardiovascular and endocrine responses to acute hypoxaemia
during and following dexamethasone infusion in the ovine fetus.
The important criteria representing organ failure used were: altered mental status; arterial hypoxaemia
(the ratio of partial pressure of arterial oxygen and the fraction of inspired oxygen (Pa[O.sub.2]/Fi[O.sub.2])<300); acute oliguria (urine output <0.5 mL/kg/h for at least 2 hours); creatinine increase >0.5 mg/dL; coagulation abnormalities (INR >1.5 or a PTT >60 s); thrombocytopenia (platelet count <100 000/mL); hyperbilirubinemia (plasma total bilirubin >4 mg/dL).
Raised catecholamine with maternal hypoxaemia
and stress levels in pregnancy further predispose the cases to arrhythmia.
Polyneuropathy associated with chronic hypoxaemia
: Prevalence in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
The diagnosis is usually made in the context of hypoxaemia
in known cirrhosis, when other cardiopulmonary causes have been excluded and pulmonary vasodilatation is demonstrable .
Restoration of cardiopulmonary function with 21% versus 100% oxygen after hypoxaemia
in newborn pigs.
A survey of nocturnal hypoxaemia
and health related quality of life in patients with cryptogenic fibrosing alveolitis.
