There may be such a thing as too much oxygen..

The effect of hyperoxia on mortality in critically ill patients: a systematic review and meta analysis

Do your patients have supplemental oxygen and sats of 100% on the monitor? If so, they may be getting too much oxygen. Wean the supplemental oxygen as we have data that this causes harm. I encourage you to read this article which you can download on my website, eddyjoemd.com. I’m making an effort to review articles for you all that you can download for free and not have to pay ridiculous fees to stay up to date. You can like my posts and YouTube videos and donate $10 to your favorite charity instead 😁. Thank you to the authors, as always because I do not do research myself.
