    Greetings.

    I am wondering what other sites are using for saturation goals in their infants. We are currently targeting 88-92% in infants <36 weeks, and 90-95% above. We are discussing changing to a singular target of 90-95% for all our patients. Just looking to see if their are other sites with multiple ranges as well.

    Thanks,

    Adam Buettner, RRT

    We previously used 88-92 as a target range for preterm infants but then switched to 90-95 with low alarm at 89 and high at 96. I would suggest using 95 as a high alarm rather than 96 as in general there tends to be more time spent above range then below which is likely to contribute to higher ROP when using this range.
