Abstract

Reduced tissue perfusion, hypoxia and acidosis are essential features in the pathophysiology of haemorrhagic shock and their correction is the ultimate goal of the treatment. In the present work skeletal muscle oxygen tension and muscle surface pH were continuously recorded in lightly anaesthetized, tracheostomized male rabbits during graded haemorrhage and subsequent fluid management.
