However, it may occur when critically ill neonates are admitted onto paediatric units where medical staff have a significant background of neonatal experience or at the request of a PICU transfer team prior to their arrival to assist in accurate assessment of the clinical condition. In addition, many critically ill children require frequent blood gas analysis, so insertion of an arterial line provides an opportunity for IABP to be continuously displayed on physiological monitors, adding to data that inform decision making.

Before the transducer can be reached by back flow) and be slow, and the line should be flushed to remove any blood remnants. If blood gases are required as well then single access via the arterial route is preferable. indd 31 The gold standard measurement for oxygen status is still intermittent arterial blood sampling, but many clinicians would agree that the advent of pulse oximetry has revolutionised the clinical setting. This continuous, simple and non-invasive monitoring method can generally indicate the adequacy of oxygenation within the patient’s body.

Low levels of oxygen in the tissues (hypoxia) results in anaerobic respiration (energy created without oxygen) within cells, which is inefficient and produces toxic acid by-products. If this situation continues, the increasing acid load and lack of oxygen causes cellular malfunction. The resulting damage may be transient (producing minor and temporary alterations in function) or permanent (resulting in significant and irreversible pathology/loss of function or death). The risk is heightened in children due to lower pulmonary reserves which can lead to a rapid decompensation and deterioration (Chandler 2000).
