Table 2 Measured peripheral and brain regional oxygen saturations in % during different ECMO regimens.

From: Coronary versus carotid blood flow and coronary perfusion pressure in a pig model of prolonged cardiac arrest treated by different modes of venoarterial ECMO and intraaortic balloon counterpulsation

N = 11 Baseline Cardiac arrest FS FS+IABP FF FF + IABP
Oxygen saturation (%)       
Peripheral 56.7 (49.2, 62.7) 34.0 (23.5, 34.0) 49.7 (48.4, 55.5) 48.7 (44.7, 52.5) 54.0 (40.2, 57.6) 46.7 (41.1, 56.2)
Brain 56.0 (50.5, 58.1) 23.0 (15.0, 32.3) 49.0 (42.8, 52.4) 52.0 (47.2, 53.2) 50.7 (41.9, 58.0) 49.0 (42.4, 55.6)

(% of baseline)
      
Peripheral --- 53.7 (42.0, 63.5) 91.4 (79.4, 99.9) 86.9 (75.4, 96.1) 92.1 (76.4, 103.5) 94.5 (73.3, 98.2)
Brain --- 39.2 (30.3, 55.9) 86.4 (83.4, 91.7) 90.1 (83.6, 99.8) 93.8 (80.8, 102.1) 91.9 (82.2, 97.6)
  1. Absolute values outlined in upper part and percentage of baseline values in bottom part. FS, femoro-subclavian; FF, femoro-femoral; IABP, intraaortic balloon counterpulsation; The median of baseline percentage is not percent expression of absolute value median. It is a median of baseline percentage from each experiment.
