Adit Ginde, MD, MPH, professor of emergency medicine, and his team’s work has paved the way for the SAVE-O2 trial, a multicenter randomized clinical trial funded by the U.S. Department of Defense. The SAVE-O2 trial focuses on redefining oxygen requirements in critically ill trauma patients through targeting normoxemia.

Preliminary results from analyzing data from approximately 12,000 randomized patients have unveiled promising outcomes. Manually targeting normoxemia successfully reduces hyperoxemia without increasing hypoxemia, resulting in lower mortality rates, shortened hospital stays, and decreased supplemental oxygen requirements. Their advancements in oxygen therapy protocols have already begun to influence guidelines, with updates to 10 relevant Joint Trauma System guidelines.

Dr. Ginde and his team are now evaluating the efficacy of automatic oxygen therapy technology, with O2matic’s proprietary technology chosen for a multi-center study involving 300 patients. This study, named SAVE-O2 AI, and initiated in May 2024, aims to publish results by early 2026.
