    • 4 Pages

    Background and Objective The objective of this study was to evaluate the impact of routine early pulse oximetry screening (POS) on the rate of unexpected neonatal unit admissions and the need for echocardiography. The study also reviewed the outcomes of babies admitted to the level 3 NICU as a result of a positive POS testing. What is known prior to the study is that some cardiac defects are missed by antenatal ultrasound and routine clinical examination in the newborn period. Also, early detection of such anomalies can improve outcomes, and POS can improve detection of CCHD’s. Review There are 18 different references used to support this article ranging from 2008 to 2013. Most of these articles were published in the last 5 year, evaluated…

    Pulse oximetry is a noninvasive procedure that is used to measure the oxygen saturation level of the newborn (Pillitteri & Pillitteri, 2013). The device used in pulse oximetry readings contains two diodes that release equal concentrations of red and infrared light concurrently into the tissue bed the electrode is secured (WHO, 2011). The reading that is displayed is the proportion of reduced hemoglobin and oxygenated blood that is calculated and displayed indicating the oxygen concentration…

    Abstract— Optical Pulse Oximetry is feasibly the greatest advance in patient monitoring. Pulse Oximetry enables oxygenation, an important physiological variable that is poorly detected by clinical means, to be monitored continuously and easily. Hypoxemia is commonly found in all aspects of medical practice and is a major cause of organ abnormality and death. It should be widely available and used routinely in clinical practice both in primary care and in hospital. This paper will design a…

    Introduction: The heart rate of an animal can be used as an indicator to identify when a stimulus evokes a reaction from the animal. Specifically in the case of humans’, there tends to be the cognitive ability to physically withhold a reaction from a stimulus and mask the involuntary reaction. However, the heart rate reacts immediately after a stimulus, and is not reigned in or controlled cognitively, so could the heart potentially be a true indicator of an individuals reaction to a stimulus?…

    blood pressure is affected when the arm is positioned differently; blood pressure is highest when relaxed and fully extended and lowest when arm is held above subject’s head. Table 3 depicts the interval, or the amount of time, between two pulses. Table 4 depicts the calculate heart rates of volunteer 1 and 2 based upon the amplitude and interval of each pulse. As interval decreases, heart rate increase and amplitude does not affect rate, but represents the…

    Peripheral Pulse Checks and Amplitude Absence or diminished leg pulses may suggest peripheral arterial disease of intermittent claudication. Absence suggests occlusion by thrombus, embolus, or dissection. If the pulse is hypokinetic or of low volume and amplitude, this could suggest shock or myocardial infarction indicative of low cardiac output such in the case of cardiomyopathy, stenosis, tamponade, or pericarditis. Hyperkinetic or bounding pulses are large-amplitude and strong pulses may be…
