BACKGROUND Traditional vital signs such as heart rate, blood pressure, and oxygen saturation are not ideal for timely and accurate assessment of physiologic status after trauma (TR) and hemorrhagic shock (HS). Analysis of the complex beat-to-beat variability present in the heart-rate time series has been proposed as a "new vital sign" in this setting. We(More)
Hemorrhagic shock (HS) is a setting in which both pulmonary and cutaneous perfusion may be impaired. The goals of this study were to evaluate the relationship between end-tidal (etCO2), transcutaneous (tPCO2), arterial carbon dioxide (PaCO2) and lactate during lethal HS and to assess the effect of progressive HS on those variables and on a new variable, the(More)
