Advanced Monitoring Parameters: ScvO₂

 
Central Venous Oxygen Saturation (ScvO₂)

ScvO₂ shows early whether there is an imbalance between oxygen consumption (VO₂I) and oxygen delivery (DO₂I). There is a good correlation between ScvO₂ and SvO₂ (mixed venous oxygenation measured via a PA-catheter). ScvO₂ is less invasive than mixed venous SvO₂ measurement via PA-catheter, there is a high impact on patient outcome (as shown with Early Goal Directed Therapy - EDGT - literature).
