Description

The ROX index is defined as the ratio of oxygen saturation as measured by pulse oximetry (SpO2)/FIO2 to respiratory rate (RR). It stands for Respiratory rate - OXygenation. ROX ≥ 4.88 at 2, 6, and 12 hours means they're likely in the safe zone. ROX < 2.85 at 2 hours, ROX < 3.47 at 6 hours, ROX < 3.85 at 12 hours means the patient likely needs to be intubated.
