Unfortunately, normal values in blood pressure, central venous pressure, heart rate, and blood gases do not rule out tissue hypoxia or imbalances between whole-body oxygen supply and demand [2]. This discrepancy has led to increased interest in more direct indicators of adequacy of tissue oxygenation such as mixed and central venous oxygen saturations. Pulmonary artery catheterization allows obtaining true mixed venous oxygen saturation (SvO2) while measuring central venous oxygen saturation (ScvO2) via central venous catheter reflects principally the degree of oxygen extraction from the brain and the upper part of the body.

Titration of fractional inspired oxygen concentration Pulse oximetry can assist with titration of fractional inspired oxygen concentration (FIO2) in ventilator-dependent patients, although the appropriate SpO2 target depends on a patient’s pigmentation. In white patients, an SpO2 target value of 92% predicts a satisfactory level of oxygenation, whereas black patients required an SpO2 target of 95%. In patients with severe acute respiratory distress syndrome, an SpO2 target of 88–90% is acceptable in order to minimize oxygen toxicity.
