"Assessing trauma patient risk using non-invasive indicators"
MetadataShow full item record
Non-invasive indicators of a trauma patient's risk of cardiovascular collapse are needed. Exhaled alveolar air (end-tidal air) and skin surface are available non-invasively and have physiologic reasons to relate to trauma patient risk. We investigated the combined relationships between end-tidal PCO2 and systemic blood flow and skin PCO2 and base deficit (an indicator of systemic metabolic insult).
