Abstract

Tissue oxygenation should be monitored to detect a state of malperfusion as soon as possible. Below a critical threshold oxygen delivery (DO2) an oxygen supply dependency develops, which is generally taken as evidence for a tissue oxygen debt to develop. The aim of this study was to assess a critical threshold tissue oxygen tension (PO2) value in skeletal muscle below which a tissue oxygen debt develops.
