With moderate VA/Q imbalance PaO2 increases almost linearly as FIO2 is increased. In severely acute COPD the degree of very low VA/Q ratios resembles shunt; the increase in PaO2 in response to increasing FIO2 is only slightly limited, becoming less responsive to increases FIO2. Importantly, FIO2 can also alter VA/Q balance through two additional mechanisms: hypoxic pulmonary vasoconstriction (HPV) and reabsorption atelectasis (RA). 1018 26 One of the main means by which the normal lung adjusts to low regional VA is to induce vasoconstriction of the associated pulmonary vasculature to redirect perfusion away from nonventilated or under ventilated alveolar units.

Third panel Pulsatile signal with superimposed noise artifact giving a jagged appearance. Lowest panel Pulsatile signal during motion artifact showing an erratic waveform. (From [1]) 2018 30 ranging from Ÿ12% to 18%, and oximetry tends systematically to underestimate SaO2 when it is 80% or less. perfusion and motion, the ability to track changes in SpO2 and reduce nuisance alarms was improved with this technology [3]. Limitations of pulse oximetry Interference from substances Oximeters have a number of limitations which may lead to inaccurate readings [1]; these are presented below.

Screening test for cardiopulmonary disease The potential usefulness of pulse oximetry as a screening tool for cardiopulmonary disease that could supplement or supplant respiratory rate as a “pulmonary vital sign” was investigated in patients managed in the emergency department [9]. 16) was observed between SpO2 and respiratory rate. Overall only one-third of patients with an SpO2 value below 90% would exhibit an increase in respiratory rate. While pulse oximetry could be used as a screening tool for cardiopulmonary disease, there are no data to suggest that decisions based on SpO2 improve outcome over decisions based on respiratory rate.
