ANDEAN HIGH-ALTITUDE ANCESTRY DOES NOT PROTECT FROM ACUTE MOUNTAIN SICKNESS AND ALTITUDE-INDUCED ARTERIAL HYPOXEMIA
Respiratory support and oxygen therapy after tracheal extubation are of major importance to prevent hypoxemia and subsequent respiratory failure or reintubation in patients under general anaesthesia operation.
The second one does not distinguish intracardiac and intrapulmonary shunting and has inferior sensitivity compared to MTTE; however, it may help to distinguish the degree of hypoxemia caused by IPVD (abnormal brain uptake > 6%) in the setting of coexistent intrinsic cardiopulmonary disease [13].
He was admitted for acute hypoxemic respiratory failure and subsequently underwent emergent intubation for persistent hypoxemia. Purulent material was also noted in the airway during intubation.
In addition, five infants had undergone mechanical ventilation due to hypoxemia, and 12 infants had been administered with prostaglandin E1 to maintain PDA open before surgical.
Several criteria for this condition were defined, characterizing it as being the consequence of hypoxemia and alveolus-capillary mechanical lesion owing to a prolonged lung collapse, occurring independently from the technique used for pleural emptying on either pleural effusion or pneumothorax (pleural suction, Heimlich valve, water stamp, or positive-pressure ventilation).
Can clinical symptoms or signs accurately predict hypoxemia in children with acute lower respiratory tract infections?
REM sleep related alterations in ventilation is more severe in respiratory disordered patients, who had already some Hypoxemia, COPD is of best example.

We present a case of antiphospholipid syndrome causing BCS with IVC and SVC thrombosis with progressive shortness of breath and hypoxemia due to SVC syndrome and SPVS.
During the operation, massive hypoxemia occured and his saturations ranged between 80% and 85%.
Therefore, we conducted this study to investigate the diagnostic value of pulse oximetry in detecting acidosis, hypercapnia, hypoxemia, and hyperoxemia.
