Newborn blood oxygen saturation
The normal value of transcutaneous oxygen saturation in normal growing neonates is >95%.
Oxygen saturation is the concentration of oxyhemoglobin in the blood, and the oxygenation of the lungs and the capacity of hemoglobin to carry and transport oxygen can be estimated by monitoring the arterial oxygen saturation.The transcutaneous oxygen saturation value of normal neonates is >95%.
When blood oxygen saturation drops, cyanosis occurs, which is caused by an increase in reduced hemoglobin in the blood beyond a certain level.
It is generally believed that when the reduced hemoglobin content in arterial blood is greater than 50 g/L, cyanosis can be found on the face and trunk of the newborn.
The causes include physiological cyanosis and pathological cyanosis. Pathological cyanosis can be seen in diseases such as heart failure, shock, neonatal asphyxia, congenital malformations of the respiratory tract, pneumonia, pneumothorax, and transposition of the great arteries.
When the blood oxygen saturation drops in the child, it is necessary to seek medical treatment in time, and treat it under the guidance of a doctor after the cause is identified.
