Does ART digital display need to read zero when checking zero reference?
No- signal interrupted for less than 1 second and not required
CDC recommends using _____ technique when inserting ART lines, and replacing catheters, transducers and flush tubing every ___ hours.
More peripheral Art lines display what 3 changes? (aorta vs femoral)
- 1) wider pulse pressure (taller)
- 2) delayed upstroke
- 3) slurred dicrotic notch
general changes in BP waveform as you move peripherally
- systolic increase
- diastolic decrease
- mean pressure decrease
- dP/dT increase
- waveform more peaked
What does HHb stand for?
What wavelengths does an O2 spectrophotometer measure?
660 and 940 nm (red and infrared)
what is the diff between Fractional SaO2 and Functional O2
- fractional accounts for all types of Hgb, regardless of carrying capacity
- Functional includes only OHbg and total Hgb
Why does carboxyhemoglobin read 90?
oxy and carboxy absorb equally at 660 nm
at SaO2 of 85% the ration of 660 to 940 nm is what?
What causes right shift of OHDC?
- RIGHT- increased H+
decerased O2 affinity and increased offloading
What causes left shift of OHDC?
- opposite of everything listed for right shift
De oxygenated Hgb shows higher amplitude with what wavelength?
Venous pulse effect?
double notch before major dip
What does a massimo SET do?
- Signal Extraction technology.
- separates noise from wanted signal

What are the measurement errors fro pulse ox:
- +/- 2
- +/- 3
- *95% data will fall within +- 4-6 w/ standard devation
What is perfusion index? (PULSE OX)
Is it relative?
- numerical value indication strength of IR signal returning from monitoring site (PULSE OX)
- yes- varies according to site of monitor/physiology
is transmission pulse accurate when used as reflectance pulse ox?
ASA standards require _____ ______ tones must be audible when using the PULSE OX.
IV infusion may cause poor function of ____ ___ due to hypothermia and edema if used on same limb.
Probe (Pulse ox) should not be on what finger during wake-up?
- may cause corneal abrasion if pt rubs eyes
two ways to confirm pulse ox placement accuracy:
- synchronous with pulse rate of ECG
Cerebral Oximetry is NIRS, what does this stand for?
Natrual Human Tissue window is ____ - ____ nm.
- Near-infrared spectrometry
- *710 and 830 are commonly used
- *short from tissue and skull, long for brain
What are the problems with cerebral oximetry?
- intra/extracranial blood dependence
- dependence on venous and arterial pressure
- - pt position
- - PaCO2, hypoxia, pH
- - cerebral edema
Ways to improve rSO2:
- mechanical (head position, cannula position)
- decrease metabolic demand (increase anesthetic, decr temp)
- increase supply (O2 delivery) (incr FiO2, cerebral blood flow, CO2, BP, hematocrit)
