Sample text

Note that a response limited to reflex withdrawal from a painful stimulus is not considered a purposeful response and signals deep sedation. Pulse Oximetry All patients undergoing sedation should be monitored by pulse oximetry. Supplemental oxygen should be considered for moderate sedation, patients with significant cardiopulmonary disease, and administered during deep sedation. If hypoxemia develops during sedation, supplemental oxygen should be administered. Ventilation and oxygenation are separate though related physiologic processes; monitoring oxygenation by pulse oximetry is not a substitute for monitoring ventilatory function.

Pylori has returned positive. The patient has had similar symptoms for the past five years and has been diagnosed with NUD. The patient’s new physician has to decide whether to continue treating the patient’s symptoms with a PPI or start the patient on an empirical trial of ABXs. The decision tree is outlined in Figure 2-4. The decisions in favor of ABX or PPI are both followed by the same set of possibilities: The patient may suffer from PUD or NUD. The response rates to ABX or PPI therapy (shown in parentheses inside the white boxes) would, of course, vary depending on the type of unknown disease from which the patient actually suffers.

The two strategies would become equivalent if NSAID + PPI = COX-2. On the other hand, if COX-2 were associated with different probabilities for the occurrence of complications or different costs for the management of complications, the relationship between the two treatment options would change again. This last example serves as a reminder that the outcome of the decision tree depends on its overall structure and the type of question modeled by the tree. Besides varying the costs or probabilities of the decision tree, as alluded to in the previous paragraph, one could also redraw parts of the tree or change its overall appearance.
