Normal Oxygenation Versus Hyperoxia in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) (OXYGEN-ICU)
Recruitment status was Recruiting
Oxygen administration is a common practice in intensive care units, although concern is growing about oxygen toxicity. The aim of the study is to access whether a rigorous maintenance of a state of normal oxygenation in critically ill patients could obtain better outcomes, such as mortality, infections and organ failures, in comparison to conventional oxygen therapy practice.

Experimental: Oxygenation, rigorous normal
Patients admitted in intensive care unit for 3 days. Administration of the lowest inspiratory fraction dose of oxygen to maintain oxygen peripheral saturation (SpO2) between 94 and 98% or an arterial partial pressure of oxygen (PaO2) between 70 and 100 mmHg. No oxygen addition administer for transports or diagnostic manoeuvres. Conventional clinical criteria for airways control and ventilation technique.
The lowest inspiratory fraction of oxygen between 21 and 100% in as a short time as possible to maintain SpO2 between 94 and 98% or PaO2 between 70 and 100 mmHg.
No Intervention: Oxygen, free conventional
Patients admitted in intensive care units for 3 days. Administration of oxygen inspiratory fractions to maintain SpO2 over 97%, up to a PaO2 of 150 mmHg. Oxygen addition administer for transports or diagnostic manoeuvres. Conventional clinical criteria for airways control and ventilation technique.
