Rationale: Recent clinical studies have shown a relationship between abnormalities in peripheral perfusion and unfavorable outcome in patients with septic shock. Nitroglycerin may be effective to restore alterations in microcirculatory blood flow. This study is aimed to investigate whether nitroglycerin administration could correct the abnormalities on peripheral circulation of resuscit...
Sepsis may be defined as a systemic repercussion of infection. Presenting as progressive stages - sepsis, severe sepsis and septic shock - from the same pathophysiological process, it is an emergency associated with increased morbidity and mortality. Clinical studies have demonstrated the increased incidence of sepsis and the dynamics of its epidemiology, regarding both the population i...
Some studies have shown a decreasing gradient in blood O2 saturation (SO2) and lactate concentration ([Lac]) from the right atrium to the pulmonary artery, defined as ΔSO2 and Δ[Lac], respectively. These concentration gradients are produced by mixing of RA blood with myocardial venous blood of lower O2 content and [Lac]. The possibility exists, however, that mixing with inferi...
