Hypoxia can be due to ventilation/perfusion mismatch, hypoventilation, abnormal diffusion, or right to left cardiac shunts. Hypoxia is life-threatening and immediately treatable by increasing the oxygen flow rate or using a higher fixed performance rated device. Remember to check the inspired oxygen fraction (FiO2). This is more normally expressed as the percentage of oxygen delivered. Is the PaO2 disproportionate? For example, with a PaO2 of 13 kPa on 90% oxygen, the patient is not hypoxic but needing high levels of oxygen to maintain oxygenation – get senior help.
