The standard clinical method for the assessment of viability in ischemic small intestine is still visual inspection and palpation. This method is non-specific and unreliable, and requires a high level of clinical experience. Consequently, viable tissue might be removed, or irreversibly damaged tissue might be left in the body, which may both slow down(More)
For detection of cardiac ischemia based on regional pCO(2) measurement, sensor drift becomes a problem when monitoring over several hours. A real-time drift correction algorithm was developed based on utilization of the time-derivative to distinguish between physiological responses and the drift, customized by measurements from a myocardial infarction(More)

OBJECTIVES Detection of perioperative myocardial ischaemia in cardiac surgery remains challenging, as current clinical bedside monitoring is insufficient in making proper diagnoses in real-time. Cellular metabolism gets altered during ischaemia and tissue PCO2 is produced in the course of buffering anaerobic lactic acidosis. Myocardial tissue PCO2 has been(More)
Hepatic artery (HA) occlusion and portal vein (PV) occlusion are the most common vascular complications after liver transplantation with an impact on mortality and retransplantation rates. The detection of severe hypoperfusion may be delayed with currently available diagnostic tools. Hypoperfusion and anaerobically produced lactic acid lead to increases in(More)
