Brief Summary:
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.

Arm Intervention/treatment
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.
Drug: Oxygen
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.



Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Mortality in ICU [ Time Frame: 30 days ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Rate of organ dysfunctions (respiratory, circulation, renal, liver) [ Time Frame: 30 days ]
  2. Rate of nosocomial blood and respiratory infections in intensive care unit and surgery site infections in hospital. [ Time Frame: 30 days ]
