ABSTRACT
The authors discuss a study on the relation between venous-to-arterial carbon dioxide difference (Pv-aCO2) and microvascular perfusion in patients with early septic shock, by G.A. Ospina-Tascon and colleagues, which has been published in journal. They note that septic shock condition is a commonly found in intensive care units, and state significance of central venous oxygen saturation (ScVO2) in treatment of septic shock. They cite application of Pv-aCO2 in evaluating microcirculation.
