Calculate Oxygen Index


MAP FiO2 PaO2
               
O.I. =

To figure an O.I., enter MAP, FiO2, & PaO2 data in the boxes above, and then click "Calculate".
Note: your browser must support Javascript, or this will not work.

O.I. = (MAP X FiO2 X 100)/PaO2

For instance, if MAP is 10, FiO2 is .70 and PaO2 55, your O.I. is slightly >12. When the O.I. gets as high as 12 you must call the Medical Director. (Do this in anticipation of possibly achieving the study threshold level of 15.)
