High central venous saturation after cardiac surgery is associated with increased organ failure and long-term mortality: an observational cross-sectional study

Abstract

INTRODUCTION Central venous saturation (ScvO2) monitoring has been suggested to address the issue of adequate cardiocirculatory function in the context of cardiac surgery. The aim of this study was to determine the impact of low (L) (<60%), normal (N) (60%-80%), and high (H) (>80%) ScvO2 measured on intensive care unit (ICU) admission after cardiac surgery… (More)
