BACKGROUND Near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) can continuously and noninvasively monitor tissue oxygen saturation (StO2) in muscle and may be an indicator of shock severity. Our purpose was to evaluate how well StO2 predicted outcome in high-risk torso trauma patients presenting in shock. METHODS The primary outcome in this prospective study was multiple organ dysfunction syndrome (MODS). StO2 data were obtained upon hospital arrival and for 24 hours along with other known predictors of… CONTINUE READING
