FIO2 Influences SvO2 Interpretation and Fick-based Cardiac Output Assessment

2020-02-16 17:40:48 | BioPortfolio


In this study, we sought to clarify the influence of FIO2 levels on the variables in the Fick equation and then assessed the influence of each variable on the accuracy of Fick-CO measurements in patients undergoing cardiac surgery.


Patients who are aged ≥20 years, are undergoing planned elective cardiac surgery, and provided signed informed consent are included in the present study. Any patients with an intra-cardiac shunt are excluded.

The patients are randomly assigned to 2 groups: FIO2 <0.7 or FIO2 >0.85. And during the surgery, the oximeter values are kept ≥98%. Intra-operatively, FIO2, PaO2, SaO2, SvO2, PvO2, Hb, blood pH values, body temperature and TD-CO are recorded.

Individual modeling of oxygen capture by the human lungs.

It has been proposed that oxygen capture by the human lungs depends on four determinants: ventilation, cardiac output, oxygen partial pressure in the inspired air and the venous blood. Indeed, the the...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A state of elevated cardiac output due to conditions of either increased hemodynamic demand or reduced cardiac oxygen output. These conditions may include ANEMIA; ARTERIOVENOUS FISTULA; THYROTOXICOSIS; PREGNANCY; EXERCISE; FEVER; and ANOXIA. In time, compensatory changes of the heart can lead to pathological form of high cardiac output and eventual HEART FAILURE.

A state of subnormal or depressed cardiac output at rest or during stress. It is a characteristic of CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASES, including congenital, valvular, rheumatic, hypertensive, coronary, and cardiomyopathic. The serious form of low cardiac output is characterized by marked reduction in STROKE VOLUME, and systemic vasoconstriction resulting in cold, pale, and sometimes cyanotic extremities.

A condition of fainting spells caused by heart block, often an atrioventricular block, that leads to BRADYCARDIA and drop in CARDIAC OUTPUT. When the cardiac output becomes too low, the patient faints (SYNCOPE). In some cases, the syncope attacks are transient and in others cases repetitive and persistent.

Compression of the heart by accumulated fluid (PERICARDIAL EFFUSION) or blood (HEMOPERICARDIUM) in the PERICARDIUM surrounding the heart. The affected cardiac functions and CARDIAC OUTPUT can range from minimal to total hemodynamic collapse.

A potentially lethal cardiac arrhythmia that is characterized by uncoordinated extremely rapid firing of electrical impulses (400-600/min) in HEART VENTRICLES. Such asynchronous ventricular quivering or fibrillation prevents any effective cardiac output and results in unconsciousness (SYNCOPE). It is one of the major electrocardiographic patterns seen with CARDIAC ARREST.
