Abstract

Major advances in the care of critically ill patients have resulted in fewer deaths. However, multiple organ failure (MOF) remains a principal cause of fatality. Low cardiac output syndrome after cardiac surgery (LOS) is defined as the imbalance of oxygen demand and supply in tissues as the result of impaired cardiac function [1]. Insufficient oxygen delivery due to LOS produces MOF [2]. Here, we present an analysis of MOF in LOS patients after open heart surgery as well as continous measuring of mixed venous oxygen saturation (SV02) for estimating oxygen metabolism in LOS upon MOF.
