  • Is pulse oximetry helpful for the early detection of critical congenital heart disease at high altitude? [Journal Article]
  • CHCongenit Heart Dis 2018 Aug 10
  • González-Andrade F, Echeverría D, … Arellano M
  • CONCLUSIONS: In this cohort of patients who underwent screening pulse oximetry, no critical congenital heart diseases (CHD) were observed. However, identifying those with oxygen saturation less than 90% after 3 successive measurements or a pre- and postductal oxygen difference of > 3% resulted in successful identification of ASD and PDA. It is necessary to implement new cutoff points in saturation values to identify critical cardiac anomalies in cities placed at a high altitude. The use of pulse oximetry should be recommended in all the newborns.
