  • Overcoming the problem of pseudohypoxemia in myeloproliferative disorders: Another trick in the bag. [Case Reports]
    Indian J Crit Care Med 2012; 16(4):210-2Prasad KN, Manjunath P, … Sasikumar S
  • Pseudohypoxaemia or spurious hypoxaemia is a recurrent problem faced on arterial blood gas analysis in patients with hyperleucocytosis leading to management dilemmas and unnecessary respiratory interventions. Various methods have been suggested to reduce the magnitude of this problem. We report a case of pseudohypoxaemia due to blast crisis in a patient of chronic myeloid leukaemia where arterial…
  • Pseudohypoxemia: interpretation of discrepancies between SaO(2) and SpO(2). [Review]
    Tuberk Toraks 2005; 53(2):185-9Mutlu GM, Sznajder JI
  • Pulse oximetry is an important tool in evaluation and management of patients with cardiopulmonary disease. It provides an accurate, continuous, non-invasive measurement of oxygenation, however it has some limitations. Pseudohypoxemia is an artifactual condition that has been reported in patients with extreme leukocytosis and thrombocytosis. It should be suspected in patients with a discrepancy be…
  • Correlation of pseudohypoxemia and leukocytosis in chronic lymphocytic leukemia. [Case Reports]
    South Med J 1999; 92(8):817-9Gorski TF, Ajemian M, … Jacobs M
  • Pseudohypoxemia has been reported in leukemic patients with extreme leukocytosis, and it is characterized by a low oxygen saturation on arterial blood gas analysis despite normal saturation on pulse oximetry. We report the case of a 51-year-old man with chronic lymphocytic leukemia and an elevated white blood cell (WBC) count after splenectomy, his progressive postoperative pseudohypoxemia gradua…
  • [Pseudohypoxemia and a myeloproliferative syndrome]. [Case Reports]
    Ann Fr Anesth Reanim 1986; 5(3):318-9Durand JM, Brue T, … Harle JR
  • In the interval between the sampling of blood and analysis of the blood gas composition, the partial pressure of oxygen falls. The rate of fall depends on the temperature, initial level of partial pressure of oxygen in arterial blood, white cell and platelet count. Pseudohypoxaemia secondary to leukaemia and thrombocytosis can be recognized if the arterial blood sample is kept in ice until analys…
