AbstractA prospective study on fat embolism showed that of 95 patients with a fractured shaft of the femur, 7 (7%) demonstrated both pulmonary and cerebral disturbances, while there were profound disturbances in arterial P(O2), hemoglobin level, pulse rate, and temperature in about 40% of the patients. Using a modified Gurd test, a significant amount of fat was demonstrated in 5.7% of the samples of venous blood and in 18.5% of the samples of arterial blood.
