Kara Bliley Gina Lee Allison Powers Advisor: Tina V. Hartert, M.D., M.P.H. Quantification of Respiratory Waveform Variations in Pulse Oximetry Tracings
Background Readings are based on pulsatile absorption Arterial blood assumed to be the only pulsatile absorbance between light source and photodetector Pulse oximetry:
Background Pulse oximetry is the measure of “functional O 2 saturation” which is defined as the percentage of oxyhemoglobin (O 2 Hb) relative to the total amount of Hb available for binding:
Background Pulsus Paradoxus: –Defined as an abnormally large decline in systemic arterial pressure during inspiration (>10mmHg) –Observed in severe asthma, heart failure, and forced respiratory effort
Background How is pulsus paradoxus found? Normal Tracing Tracing Exemplifying Pulsus Paradoxus Waveform allows for recognition of pulsus paradoxus Pulsus paradoxus is normally determined manually using a blood pressure cuff time Functional O2 saturation
Objective To develop an algorithm to quantify pulsus paradoxus Normal arterial pressure trace:Pulsus paradoxus: Functional O2 saturation time
Methods: Digitizing Data Entered the data using a digitizer About six complete cycles of data entered for each tracing Number of data sets: 3 normal, 7 abnormal
Conclusion: Clinical Application Based on the correlation of our data with the established pulsus paradoxus values, we conclude that our method is an accurate way to quantitate the pulsus paradoxus, and thus the severity of the disease. Note: While developing our method, we were blinded to the diagnoses. The established pulsus paradoxus values were not made known to us until after we had results.
Current Status Work has been completed. More tracings need to be digitized. Further statistical tests will need to be done to verify the method used. Current Work We will be completing final steps of project (final presentation, web page, paper, etc…)
Work Completed Mathematical analysis has been completed. Future Work Digitizing more tracings Preparation for final presentation and write- up
Future Direction Further studies to validate the algorithm derived from method Design a method to be able to quantify pulsus paradoxus value in real time
