Hemodynamic impact of oxygen desaturation during tracheal intubation among critically ill children with cyanotic and noncyanotic heart disease.
The objective of this study was to determine a level of oxygen desaturation associated with increased risk of tracheal intubation events in children in a pediatric or cardiac ICU with cyanotic and noncyanotic heart disease. Oxygen desaturation was measured by a fall in pulse oximetry from baseline after pre-oxygenation. The primary outcome was occurrence of hemodynamic tracheal intubation associated events defined as cardiac arrest, hypotension, or dysrhythmia. Results indicate that oxygen desaturation by 30% or more is associated with increased odds for adverse hemodynamic events, after adjusting for confounders. Oxygen desaturation was observed more often in children with cyanotic than those with noncyanotic heart disease, but hemodynamic tracheal intubation associated event rates were similar.
