Oxygenation Index Calculator

This Oxygenation Index calculator (OI) gives us an accurate way of measuring the diffusion barrier of the lungs – that is, the ability of the lungs to transfer oxygen from the air we breathe into our blood. The Oxygen Index formula is frequently used to assess the wellbeing of neonates.

But how to interpret OI? Well, to put it as simply as possible: the larger the index is, the worse the state of the lungs. The OI calculator can be a useful tool in the hands of an experienced physician.
