To evaluate the prognosis value of dynamic thenar O2 saturation (StO2) response using a vascular occlusion test (VOT) during cardiogenic shock.
A retrospective clinical observational analysis was performed on adult patients treated for severe cardiogenic shock in a surgical ICU. The non-invasive InSpectra near-infrared spectrometer was used to assess the effect of VOT on thenar eminence StO2. The VOT manoeuvre was repeated within the first 24 hours of admission. StO2 VOT-induced changes were compared between surviving and nonsurviving patients between the first 8 hours and the next 16 hours.
Hemodynamic parameters within the first 8 hours in the ICU
Our results suggest that, in patients treated for cardiogenic shock, rapid improvement in the post-VOT StO2 recovery slope is associated with a better prognosis.
