Treatment with percutaneous extracorporeal mechanical assist devices provides the ultimate therapeutic option to improve the macrocirculation in patients suffering from refractory cardiac arrest, severe cardiogenic shock or during high-risk interventions. However, the flow in the smallest vessels in these critical periods is poorly understood but prognostically of high importance. Using sidestream darkfield intravitalmicroscopy, we visualised the sublingual microflow in a patient suffering from… CONTINUE READING
