Quote from Koyaanisqatsi
That makes sense, it's just that I had never seen anyone before this on more than 3, so I was just a little concerned!
it's a perfectly valid question/concern.
and, you will find few (hopefully only a few) that will still insist on nothing more than 2l...
which urges me to remind you et al, to always, always, always
assess the person behind the equipment.
some get stuck only on the diagnostics/numbers w/o assessing how the pt is presenting.
i've had copd'ers w/sats in mid 90's, who were profusely diaphoretic and rr 50's.
also had a few w/sats in mid 80's, who appeared fine...but i increased o2 anyway, and closely monitored.
you ask good questions, koya.
