Abstract

Episodes of hypoxemia are often observed in ventilated preterm infants. The frequency and severity of these episodes are mostly influenced by the degree of prematurity, lung disease and patient activity. Correcting these episodes with a transient increase in inspired oxygen is difficult and time consuming under routine clinical conditions. The need to reduce the risk of morbidities associated with hypoxemia and oxygen therapy led to the development of an automatic system that can respond to frequent and severe hypoxemic episodes and minimize oxygen exposure. This article describes the basis of this system and provides additional discussion of its clinical application.
