Noninvasive pulse oximetry in children with cyanotic congenital heart disease

Critical Care Medicine
R A BoxerP Walker


Arterial oxygen saturation, determined noninvasively by pulse oximetry in 32 pediatric patients with cyanotic congenital heart disease (CHD), was compared with oxygen saturation measured by a cooximeter in simultaneously obtained arterial blood samples. The patients were studied in the cardiac catheterization laboratory, operating room, and ICU. Excellent correlation by linear regression (n = 108, r = .95) was observed between the two methods at oxygen saturations ranging from 35% to 95%. These observations show that in infants and children with cyanotic CHD, arterial oxygen saturations can be determined accurately and reliably by pulse oximetry at rest and during changing circulatory states.

Birth Defects

Birth defects encompass structural and functional alterations that occur during embryonic or fetal development and are present since birth. The cause may be genetic, environmental or unknown and can result in physical and/or mental impairment. Here is the latest research on birth defects.
