WE thank Dr. Solomkin et al. for their Letter to the Editor regarding our critical editorial on perioperative hyperoxia and surgical site infection (SSI).1  A Letter was expected and desirable to settle issues where we are at variance. We will therefore make fully clear that we are not arguing against the statistical tools that have been used to calculate the meta-analyses that serve as the basis for the World Health Organization (WHO) recommendations for perioperative hyperoxia. We are also pleased to read that the WHO panel considers their primary analysis of perioperative hyperoxia to prevent SSI statistically insignificant and with high heterogeneity.
