A COPD patient is being admitted to the ICU. The patient is a known CO2 retainer and is very lethargic with a pulse oximeter reading of 98% on a 50% air entrainment mask. What is the most appropriate course of action at this time. Decrease the oxygen until the pulse oximeter saturation is between 88 - 92%
Which of the following signs and symptoms are associated with the presence of hypoxemia? I. Tachypnea II. Tachycardia III. Cyanosis IV. Bradynea I. Tachypnea II. Tachycardia III. Cyanosis
