Because central venous O2 saturation (superior vena cava, ScvO2) can be monitored with less patient risk than mixed venous O2 saturation (pulmonary artery, SvO2), we examined the correlations between SvO2 and ScvO2 over a broad range of cardiorespiratory conditions, including hypoxia, hemorrhage, and resuscitation in anesthetized dogs. The correlation(More)
