Introduction:  One ofdiagnostic criteria for Acute Lung Injury and Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome is  pao2/fio2 (PF) ratio 300 for ALI or 200 for ARDS. This criteria requires invasive arterial sampling. Measurement of Spo2/Fio2 (SF) ratio by pulseoximetry may be a reliable non invasive alternative to the PF ratio.   Methods and Materials: In a cross sectional study we enrolled 105 sample of patients with ALI or ARDS, to determine the Spo2/Fio2 (SF). Pao2 wasmeasured through arterial blood sampling and Spo2 measured with pulse oximetry and documented within 5 minutes of each other.   Results The relationship between SF and PF ratio was described by the follo...
