IntroductionThe safety of arterial hyperoxia is under increasing scrutiny. We performed a systematic review of the literature to determine whether any association exists between arterial hyperoxia and mortality in critically ill patient subsets.MethodsMedline, Thomson Reuters Web of Science and Scopus databases were searched from inception to June 2014. Observational or interventional studies evaluating the relationship between hyperoxia (defined as a supranormal arterial O2 tension) and mortality in adult intensive care unit (ICU) patients were included. Studies primarily involving patients with exacerbations of chronic pulmonary disease, acute lung injury and perioperative administration were excluded. Adjusted odds ratio (OR) of patients exposed versus those non-exposed to hyperoxia were extracted, if available. Alternatively, unadjusted outcome data were recorded. Data on patients, study characteristics and the criteria used for defining hyperoxia exposure were also extracted. Random-effects models were used for quantitative synthesis of the data, with a primary outcome of hospital mortality.ResultsIn total 17 studies (16 observational, 1 prospective before-after) were identified in different patient categories: mechanically ventilated ICU (number of studies (k)¿=¿4, number of participants (n)¿=¿189,143), post-cardiac arrest (k¿=¿6, n¿=¿19,144), stroke (k¿=¿2, n¿=¿5,537), and traumatic brain injury (k¿=¿5, n¿=¿7,488). Different criteria were used to define hyperoxia in terms of PaO2 value (first, highest, worst, mean), time of assessment and pre-determined cut-offs. Data from studies on ICU patients were not pooled because of extreme heterogeneity (Inconsistency (I2) 96.73%). Hyperoxia was associated with increased mortality in post-cardiac arrest patients (OR¿=¿1.42 (1.04 to 1.92) I2 67.73%) stroke (OR¿=¿1.23 (1.06 to 1.43) I2 0%) and traumatic brain injury (OR¿=¿1.41 (1.03 to 1.94) I2 64.54%). However, these results are limited by significant heterogeneity between studies.ConclusionsHyperoxia may be associated with increased mortality in patients with stroke, traumatic brain injury and those resuscitated from cardiac arrest. However, these results are limited by the high heterogeneity of the included studies.
