During resuscitation of the patient suffering from hemorrhagic shock, it may be difficult to determine the adequacy of treatment in the acute setting. The objective of these preliminary studies was to determine if monitoring perfusion of the gastrointestinal tract as estimated by gastric intramucosal pH (pHi) is useful as a guide during the treatment of hemorrhagic shock. Dogs were bled using a modified Wigger's method to a mean arterial blood pressure of 50 mmHg, and pHi was determined 30, 60… CONTINUE READING
