Recently in our #MICU, I took pics of the oxygen sats of patients on oxygen supplementation.

What is the optimal oxygen supplementation strategy for a clinically stable patient in the ICU?

Follow me down this #tweetorial rabbit hole. #medtwitter #pulmcc #AIMW19

Given that population health improvements often come from small benefits in large populations, and the fact that #oxygen is one of the most commonly prescribed interventions in the #ICU, there is potential for benefit if we can correctly titrate our oxygen titration.

I’m going to refer to hypoxia and hyperoxia in this #medthread, and I’d like to (somewhat arbitrarily) define these terms. I’ll call hypoxia anything below 90% and hyperoxia anything above 96%. This is based upon some of the literature I will discuss.
