"Journal club was interesting this week. The marvellous AR brought a paper along from the EMJ looking at the use of non-invasive tissue oxygen monitoring in septic patients. Aha, interesting we thought, there is certainly something that appeals to us about the use of a monitor that might actually tell us about tissue perfusion. This is really on the back of a long running conversation we have in the resus room about the difference between blood pressure and flow. The conversation often ends with me threatening to inject the other person with 4mg of Noradrenaline to see if they still think that blood pressure is the most important measure of tissue perfusion – nobody has taken me up on this, but you get the idea."
