  1. Measuring SpO2 and GCS at enrollment was part of the study protocol
  2. IQR interquartile range, HIV human immunodeficiency virus, SpO2 peripheral capillary oxygen saturation, SBP systolic blood pressure, GCS Glasgow Coma Scale
  3. aLowest SpO2, SBP, GCS, and platelets, and highest creatinine and bilirubin values up to the time of study enrollment are presented. N = total number of patients evaluated for those parameters up to the time of the study enrollment
