Metabolites in Shock
It is generally thought that the most important aspect of tissue perfusion is the delivery of oxygen to the cell. However, that is probably not the case. Cell metabolites and their removal by capillary perfusion are probably more critical. Absence of removal of cell metabolites will probably cause injury or death of the cell before lack of oxygen will.
