The usefulness of continuous monitoring of central venous oxygen saturation (ScvO2) in comparison with the capnogram during cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) was demonstrated in a cardiac arrest patient. ScvO2 and end-tidal carbon dioxide (ETCO2) decreased following cessation of chest compression or increased during recovery of systemic circulation. During the complete stasis of systemic circulation, when defibrillation was done, ScvO2 did not change, while ETCO2 gradually decreased. However… CONTINUE READING
