Abstract

Patients in circulatory shock exhibit insufficient peripheral perfusion to ensure adequate oxygenation of vital organs such as the heart and brain. Early detection of reduced tissue oxygen saturation (StO2) could be used for rapid therapeutic intervention and thus improve the prognosis of patients in the early stage of multiple organ dysfunction syndrome (MODS).
