Abstract

Oxygen saturation was determined non-invasively with the oxygenmet pulse wave oximeter 1471 and mathematically from the pH and pO2 of the blood gas analysis. The determination of the oxygen saturation by the aid of the oximetric method was carried out on fingers, metacarpus and wrist of 80 infants (male = 44, female = 36 - ages: 1 day - 1 year and 8 months). Blood gas analysis was done just behind the oximetric analysis and oxygen saturation was calculated from the pH and pO2. The comparison of the oxygen saturations determined non-invasively on fingers, metacarpus and wrist among themselves, showed no statistical significant differences. Also no statistical significant differences were observed between the results obtained with the pulse wave oximeter and the results calculated from the blood gas analysis. The comparison of the oxygen saturations determined with the oxygenmet oximeter (mean of fingers, metacarpus, wrist) with the oxygen saturations calculated from the blood gas analysis showed a very close correlation. The correlation coefficient was 0.930.

COVID-19

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.

Synapse Loss as Therapeutic Target in MS

As we age, the number of synapses present in the human brain starts to decline, but in neurodegenerative diseases this occurs at an accelerated rate. In MS, it has been shown that there is a reduction in synaptic density, which presents a potential target for treatment. Here is the latest research on synapse loss as a therapeutic target in MS.

Artificial Intelligence in Cardiac Imaging

Artificial intelligence (ai) techniques are increasingly applied to cardiovascular (cv) medicine in cardiac imaging analysis. Here is the latest research.

Position Effect Variegation

Position Effect Variagation occurs when a gene is inactivated due to its positioning near heterochromatic regions within a chromosome. Discover the latest research on Position Effect Variagation here.
