Also, which patient has an indication for oxygen therapy?may be just what your patient needs. Oxygen therapy is the term we use for the clinical use of supplemental oxygen. It’s indicated in patients with acute hypoxemia (PaO 2 less than 60 mm Hg or SaO 2 less than 90%) and those with symptoms of chronic hypoxemia or increased cardiopulmonary workload.One may also ask, which may affect pulse oximetry accuracy? Factors adversely affecting the accuracy of pulse oximeter output include transducer movement, peripheral vasoconstriction, a nonpulsating vascular bed, hypotension, anemia, changes in systemic vascular resistance, hypothermia, presence of intravascular dyes, and nail polish. Similarly, it is asked, what practices should the nurse perform in caring for a patient who has an ETT? Routine care promotes patient safety and optimal outcomes during endotracheal intubation by promoting patient communication and preventing skin breakdown, ETT displacement, airway injury, and VAEs.When should you not give oxygen therapy?Inappropriate oxygen use in patients at risk of type 2 respiratory failure (T2RF) can result in life-threatening hypercapnia (higher than normal levels of carbon dioxide in arterial blood), respiratory acidosis, organ dysfunction, coma and death.
