dc.description.abstractOxygen is the most commonly used drug in the acute hospital setting. Oxygen can be lifesaving but there is increasing evidence that it can cause harm if it is not given correctly. Prescription of oxygen, according to target saturations, has been advocated since 2008 but compliance remains at low levels. This paper describes a novel approach to improve oxygen prescription and titration in three acute hospital trusts using a colour-coded silicone wristband. The project ran for 3 months and covered more than 2,000 emergency admissions to hospital. Data was collected for oxygen prescription and titration rates for 270 patients during the project period. The wristbands showed an improvement in prescription and titration of oxygen in two out of three sites. The results support a wider controlled study of colour-coded wristbands to improve oxygen safety in secondary care.en
