Medication affects on OSCAR data
Medication affects on OSCAR data
I was in an auto accident (we were rear-ended on Thursday) and I noticed an interesting affect on my OSCAR data while using a muscle relaxant (to reduce muscle spasms in my back and neck).

My median pulse was 47 when it is normally 53-54 and I noticed longer 'quiet' stretches in my tidal volume. My median tidal volume was about 10% higher than normal. My SpO2 and respiration rate were normal. I get the feeling from the quiet pulse charts, etc. that my PLMs might have been subdued.


Anyone else noticed this affect from a muscle relaxant?

What about other medicines?

I did a quick search after posting this and found baclofen (not what I was taking, but a muscle relaxant) listed as an off-label means to tread PLMs.
