Comparison of Gastric Intramucosal pH Measurements with Oxygen Supply, Oxygen Consumption and Arterial Lactate in Patients with Severe Sepsis
Tissue hypoxia caused by the imbalance between the oxygen demand and the oxygen uptake, is considered to be the most important factor to the mortality and morbidity in patients with severe sepsis. However, the assessment of tissue oxygenation is still contraversial, since direct measurement of the adequacy of tissue oxygenation has not yet been available in the clinical setting.
