Jugular Bulb Oxygen Saturation and Oxygen Consumption in Patients Receiving Barbiturate Therapy
Jugular bulb oxygen saturation (SjVO2) is thought to indicate the ratio of cerebral blood flow to cerebral metabolic rate of oxygen consumption (CMRO2). Continuous monitoring of SjVO2 has been used in the management of severe head injury patients in intensive care units. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the influence of SjVO2 and oxygen consumption (VO2) under barbiturate therapy in patients with various types of intracranial hemorrhage.
