The authors of this editorial (, doi:10.1136/bmj.k4436) want to clarify that Siemieniuk and colleagues’ recommendations on oxygen saturation levels discussed in the second paragraph apply only to patients receiving oxygen. In addition, a link to reference 3 was missing at the end of the sentence beginning, “The largest meta-analysis” in the 10th paragraph. The print version is correct and the online version has been updated.
