This secondary analysis of data of a randomized controlled trial (RCT) retrospectively investigated the performance of pulse oximetry in identifying children with severe illnesses, with and without respiratory signs/symptoms, in a cohort of children followed for morbid episodes in an intervention trial assessing the efficacy of Intermittent Preventive Treatment for malaria in infants (IPTi) in Papua New Guinea (PNG) from June 2006 to May 2010.

With great interest we read the manuscript by Forde et al., regarding pulse oximetry as a screening tool for hepatopulmonary syndrome (HPS) (1). Their results indicate that pulse oximetry is insensit...
Pulse oximetry (PO) has been frequently used as an alternative test to polysomnography (PSG) in children. We conducted this study to determine which statistical parameters obtained from overnight PO m...
A previous randomized controlled trial showed that artificially elevating the pulse oximetry display resulted in fewer hospitalizations with no worse outcomes. This suggests that management decisions ...
Pulse oximetry overestimates arterial oxygen saturation (SaO ) at
Arterial blood gases (ABG) are essential for assessment of patients with severe illness, but sampling is difficult in some settings and more painful than for peripheral venous blood gas (VBG). Venous ...
Bronchiolitis is a lower respiratory tract infection (LRTI) syndrome cause by different types of viruses and occurs in young children. Although bronchiolitis is a widespread and fairly co...
The primary objective of this study is to evaluate the % oxygen saturation by pulse oximetry accuracy of a combined pulse oximetry system which consists of a Nonin sensor ), an adaptor cab...
The purpose of this clinical study is to validate the oxygen saturation (SpO2) accuracy of various pulse oximetry systems and sensors (new designs and/or reprocessed) during non-motion con...
The study assesses and compares the effect of 'pulse oximetry' (PO) used by Lady Health Workers (LHWs) at household level on increasing hospital referral acceptance rates in intervention c...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the SpO2 accuracy and performance of the Cadwell Pulse Oximetry system during non-motion conditions over the range of 70-100% SaO2 as compared to a...
The determination of oxygen-hemoglobin saturation of blood either by withdrawing a sample and passing it through a classical photoelectric oximeter or by electrodes attached to some translucent part of the body like finger, earlobe, or skin fold. It includes non-invasive oxygen monitoring by pulse oximetry.
Procedures and programs that facilitate the development or skill acquisition in infants and young children who have disabilities, who are at risk for developing disabilities, or who are gifted. It includes programs that are designed to prevent handicapping conditions in infants and young children and family-centered programs designed to affect the functioning of infants and children with special needs.

A malignant solid tumor arising from mesenchymal tissues which normally differentiate to form striated muscle. It can occur in a wide variety of sites. It is divided into four distinct types: pleomorphic, predominantly in male adults; alveolar (RHABDOMYOSARCOMA, ALVEOLAR), mainly in adolescents and young adults; embryonal (RHABDOMYOSARCOMA, EMBRYONAL), predominantly in infants and children; and botryoidal, also in young children. It is one of the most frequently occurring soft tissue sarcomas and the most common in children under 15.

Studies used to test etiologic hypotheses in which inferences about an exposure to putative causal factors are derived from data relating to characteristics of persons under study or to events or experiences in their past. The essential feature is that some of the persons under study have the disease or outcome of interest and their characteristics are compared with those of unaffected persons.
