BACKGROUND Optimization of tissue oxygen delivery to meet consumption demands is important in the resuscitation of critically ill patients. Central venous oxygen saturation (ScvO2) and lactate levels are often used to guide resuscitation; however, invasive monitoring is required for the former. Clinicians searching for less invasive alternatives may consider using peripheral venous oxygen saturation (SpvO2) and lactate levels as a substitute. OBJECTIVES To determine the relationship between… CONTINUE READING
