Traditional assessment of oxygen delivery has largely relied on global measures of perfusion, such as cardiac output, mean arterial blood pressure, central venous oxygen saturations and arterial lactate concentrations.
The protocol comprises five components, of which the first three must be completed within 6 hours: * Begin hemodynamic monitoring (central venous pressure [CVP] and central venous oxygen saturation [Scv[O.
Emergency room patients treated with a catheter that measured their central venous oxygen saturation (ScvO2) as part of an early, aggressive regimen for severe sepsis and septic shock had better overall outcomes, including lower mortality rates and shorter hospital stays, than patients receiving standard care, according to research presented by Dr.
