Objective: To evaluate pulse oximetry in predicting pulmonary toxicity as compared to chest radiograph in the emergency department(ED)of patients with suspected hydrocarbon pneumonitits. Methods: a retrospective review of hydrocarbon exposures, inhalation or ingestion, evaluated in an ED were eligible for the study. Patients that had pulse oximetry as part of their overall evaluation were selected. Charts were reviewed for the following variables: demographics, nature of the exposure, clinical presentation, laboratory studies, ED management, and outcome. Symptoms of toxicity were classified as; respiratory (dyspnea, choking, wheezing, tachypnea), oral irritation (coughing), and neurological (dizziness, drowsiness,loss of consciousness). Presence of pulmonary toxicity symptoms were summed and the differences between the two groups (pulse oximetry values and chest radiograph results) were assessed with a 2-tail t-test (p<0.05). Results: There were 171 patients collected over a 42 month period. Seventy-nine patients(46%) had symptoms of pulmonary toxicity in the ED. One-hundred and sixteen patients (68%) were
