ROX Index: Predicting High-Flow Nasal Cannula Outcomes
847

The ROX index is defined as the ratio of oxygen saturation as measured by pulse oximetry (SpO2)/FIO2 to respiratory rate (RR). It stands for Respiratory rate - OXygenation. ROX 鈮 4.88 at 2, 6, and 12 hours means they're likely in the safe zone. ROX < 2.85 at 2 hours, ROX < 3.47 at 6 hours, ROX < 3.85 at 12 hours means the patient likely needs to be intubated.

Fix the Magnesium Deficiency Before the Potassium Deficiency!
720

When patients have hypokalemia, you want to fix it. So you give potassium to make the numbers pretty.  You go ahead and give some potassium and do what the protocol says to do: recheck. Labs come back, poor patient got stuck for these labs. Potassium burned a bit on the way in because the IV was acting funny. Low and behold, the potassium did not go up. What just happened? Where did it go? Did you check the magnesium level? Probably not.
