Transcutaneous (PtcO2) and conjunctival (PcjO2) oxygen tensions and transcutaneous (PtcCO2) carbon dioxide tension were serially measured in 31 critically ill patients. Sixteen patients maintained a normal or greater blood pressure and 15 patients were severely hypotensive (MAP less than 60 mm Hg) or suffered cardiac arrest while in the emergency(More)
To define the utility of transcutaneous and conjunctival oxygen sensors in the emergency setting, we measured serial conjunctival (PcjO2) and transcutaneous (PtcO2) oxygen tensions during CPR in 11 patients. There was no significant correlation between PaO2 and PtcO2 or PcjO2. Improvement or deterioration in clinical condition as assessed by return or loss(More)
