OBJECTIVE To compare gastric mucosal pH (pHi) and global oxygen variables [Oxygen Delivery Index (DO2I) and Oxygen Consumption Index (VO2I)] as indicators of adequacy of resuscitation after major trauma. METHODS Twenty-seven patients were prospectively randomized into two groups: group 1 (n = 11), normalization and maintenance of pHi at or above 7.30; and group 2 (n = 16), maintaining a DO2I of 600 and a VO2I of > 150. The groups had statistically similar injury severity scores, lactate, and… CONTINUE READING
