Key Points: 
  • Enabled by the multi-wavelength rainbow Pulse CO-Oximetry platform, ORi is provided alongside oxygen saturation (SpO2), a clinically proven Masimo SET pulse oximetry measurement.
  • They divided 50 patients scheduled for breast surgery into a group receiving ORi-based oxygen treatment (group O) and a control group that received conventional postoperative oxygen treatment (group C).
  • Hyperoxia was defined as partial pressure of arterial oxygen (PaO2) > 120 mmHg, and hypoxia as oxygen saturation (SpO2) 94% for more than 1 minute.
  • The researchers concluded, Determining postoperative supplemental oxygen amount using ORi can noninvasively suppress hyperoxia, preventing hypoxia.
