OBJECTIVE It has been argued that the poor correlation between cardiac output and mixed venous oxygen saturation (SvO2) reduces the value of SvO2. Routine use of Swan Ganz catheters is also controversial in cardiac surgery. Here our clinical experience with a simplified method for routine hemodynamic monitoring and the short-term prognostic value of SvO2 after CABG surgery is presented. METHOD Peroperatively an epidural catheter is routinely introduced through the outflow tract of the right… CONTINUE READING
