Abstract / Description of output

The underlying objective of an anesthetist is to ensure that the oxygen delivery (DO2) is always more than the oxygen consumption of the tissues (VO2). Oxygen delivery is equal to the product of the cardiac output (CO) and the arterial oxygen concentration (CaO2): DO2 = CO X CaO2 Many of the available cardiovascular monitors can assess the CO and the CaO2 indirectly. CO is estimated by measuring the arterial blood pressure since mean arterial blood pressure (MAP) is equal to...
