Continuous or nocturnal supplemental oxygen therapy in hypoxemic
chronic obstructive lung disease: a clinical trial.
Red cell macrocytosis in hypoxemic
patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
The patient received high-dose oxygen treatment but remained hypoxemic
This is in agreement with other studies that have included sufficient numbers of severely hypoxemic

Matthews BD, Noviski N (2001) Management of oxygenation in pediatric acute hypoxemic
Initial treatment included endotracheal intubation and mechanical ventilation for hypoxemic
respiratory failure followed by the administration of continuous positive airway pressure by nasal cannula.
Patients who are hypoxemic
at rest and who are using LTOT are advised to exercise on oxygen, the flow rate titrated to prevent saturations falling below 90% if possible.
As a result, clinicians are alerted to hypoxemic
events earlier, allowing them to intervene in a timely manner.
Other studies show that HbF levels are higher in hypoxemic
children(2), and infants born at high altitude have elevated levels of HbF as compared to infants born at sea level(4).
During the Vietnam War in 1960s, military physicians encountered a distinctive form of hypoxemic
respiratory failure involving both lungs simultaneously.
The clinical syndrome among hospitalized MERS-CoV patients includes severe acute respiratory illness, sometimes associated with hypoxemic
respiratory failure and extrapulmonary organ dysfunction (3); however, milder illness and asymptomatic infections have been identified through contact investigations (4-6).
